A great spring ale. Often mistaken for cider, this beer is lightly flavorful, delightfully crisp and tart just like the spring air. The appearance is clear and bright, however the ale leaves very little lacing around the glass. Not for the IPA crowd but a great tasty beer, especially for cider lovers.

Appearance: Clear, golden yellow color with a thin cap of head that fades quickly to a ring.

Aroma: Apples, cinnamon and clove; basically apple pie.

Taste: Crisp and tart up front, very cider-like. The spices shows up more on the back end leading to a fast and clean finish.

The Rest: Not bad, basically a spiced cider. I could see drinking a few on a nice, fall day.
