4.4/5 rDev +31.3%
Poured into a 12oz Pilsner Glass
Appearance - Pours a slightly dark golden color with a slight haziness and 1 finger head that stays around for a minute before disappearing. Lots of carbonation at first before tapering off.
Smell - There's some apple cider in here along with some yeast and surprisingly prevalent malty notes. The smell kind of reminds me of a dry cider like Strongbow.
Taste - The strongest flavor is easily the apple cider and the fruity notes. You can also taste the malts, but the yeast smell is nowhere to be found in the flavor; Probably because of the strong cider flavor. The aftertaste is fairly dry, consisting of just a bittersweet apple flavor.
Mouthfeel - This is a VERY smooth and easy beer to drink. It's got a fairly light body and the carbonation is very tame, so it makes for an easy drink. In terms of drinkability, this is what a Cream Ale should feel like!
Overall - The flavor will be off putting to some of those who are not familiar with dry ciders or with those who don't like their beers with fruity flavoring. Aside from that, this is a pretty good Cream Ale, it drinks like a Cream Ale should!

Purchased from Blue Max Liquors in Burnsville, MN. Pours a clear, light coppery orange body with a thin white head that falls to a cap. Aroma is of clean malt and faint apple. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Smooth malt flavors lead to just a hint of apple in the finish with no detectable bitterness. Very refreshing. I had expected this to be overly apple flavored and syrupy, but it had great drinkability and gives a new take on a light cream ale. Well done, Furthermore!

Transcribed from notes dtd Sa, 09 Oct 2010.
My aggressive pour netted me two-plus fingers of eggshell-white head with excellent retention. There was no need to lean in for a sniff – the nose was like having bitten into a Red Delicious. Color was a beautiful golden-amber with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was medium with crisp apple tartness on the tongue. The label read “Cream Ale brewed with Apple Cider”, but the apple flavor was dominant. Finish was crisp and dry, but the effervescence lent it a quality that ordinary hard cider seems to lack. I am betting that the ABV is relatively low, making it perfect for a slow autumn afternoon.

First beer of the night. Like apples and like beer. Put em together? Can't be that bad.
A - Poured into my pub glass I get a ton of carbonation. Most impressive part about this beer. Looks pretty amber in color. Head quickly disappears into a ring of lacing. Sort of gives off a pop "fizz" when poured.
S - Smells sort of like someone apple spiced my Yuengling. Serious amber tones and mild sour apple funk. Hope it tastes better than it smells.
T - Not very bitter. Sour apples sting the tongue with a mild amber sweetness and very little to no lager bitterness. Apple and amber clash pretty well. Was impressed!
M - Very light. As I type I am about halfway done.
D - Well I have to take in the fact that it was a high price on the mix and match section (red dot) so a sixer will be around 13-14 dollars. Ouch! If I do see it for the price of Lancaster's beers (10-11 dollars) I would pick up a sixer. Overall a refreshing and (damn 6.2%? really) smooth for the ABV. Liked it.

A- pours a 1 finger white head on top of a clear bronze body. The head leaves some slight lacing on its way down.
S- Notes of dark apples, grape aromas, light cranberry, light hopiness. (Almost a 3.5, but just makes a 4).
T- Starts out very smooth with a great fresh apple note, some great cider spices, and then finally the finish you get right away eating an apple.
M- Ultra low carbonation. Nice feel.
D- I decided that if you come at this from the beer angle, you'll probably be disappointed but if you're looking for a hard cider, this is great. It has a very fresh cider feel with just enough creaminess from the beer to give it a great balance.

Pours a golden apple juice color with a thick white head that sticks around and no real lacing. Smells like apples and some little cream beer. Tastes like apple cider with some mild cream ale mixed in. Mouthfeel is medium with a little carbonation. Drinkability is decent.

Pours a dark straw perfectly clear with an active head that recedes quickly.
Smell is light and sweet. Apple cider and floral hop notes.
Taste is sour lager yeast and sweet apple skins. The sweetness lingers after the finish. There is a light floral hop presence. Very clean finish, with a slightly biting feel on the tongue. There is a strange earthy bitterness like a Washington or Red Delicious apple skin that you get with the apple sweetness. Very interesting profile.
Not a nail biter, but interesting.

A- This beer has a crystal clear deep brown body with a big bubbles gliding to the surface. There is a thing bubbly head that fades to a film pretty quickly.

T- The light tartness of apples is followed by a soft candy sweetness and a light cream note. The soft pale malt note comes through with a corn hint and a champaign note at the finish. There is a light tang that lingers after the finish.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a tight fizz at the finish.
D- This beer has some bright fresh apple flavor with some nice cream ale qualities. Flavors are smooth and refreshing.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
A- Pours a golden color with a slight head that is pure white.
S- Smells very sour. Smells just like a Flemish brown ale. distinctly of apples and yeast.
T- Taste is right off the bat distinctly of apples mixed with bananas. Ends with a very sweet taste. Perfect for people who love sour and sweet.
M- gives a immediate sour sting that ends with a smooth sweet finish. Has a bubully coarse mouth feel.
Overall a Great Cream Ale. I can't help but think of Spotted Cow when I drink this. It is literally like an apple flavored Spotted Cow. Very good, Would definitely buy again.

Fallen Apple pours a clear copper in color with a tight, light khaki colored head that remained throughout consumption. The aroma consists of sweet green apples; the malt reminded me of an apple kringle crust and a hint of caramel. The mouthfeel is medium and very effervescent. This is a very dry apple ale. Savory and almost lending itself as a sipper to enjoy and contemplate the flavors of the beer. It's light and crisp, almost brut-like. Apple sweetness is combined with a light maltiness, to find and enjoyable Autumn ale.

Clear golden color with a large white head that had excellant retention before settling to a thick cap. Heavy sheets of lacing is left on the glass. Do not remember many cream ales looking as good as this one. Aroma is a combination of green apples and cereal malt. The apple juice added something to this beer. It is well represented in the flavor as well. Adds an interesting, tart, green apple flavor that compliments the otherwise bland and uninteresting malt. Hop bitterness is non-existant. The beer may be just a bit undercarbonated for the style. Otherwise the body is good. A little bit more body than what is typically a lighter beer. Not something I could drink a lot of especially considering the high ABV. But a cream ale that is a little bit more interesting than most.

Thanks to Jeff for sending me this one.
A: The beer is super carbonated and the pour results in a massive white head that takes quite some time to settle down. Eventually one can see a clear orange-straw colored beer.
S: There's definitely a big cider note to the nose which provides a nice apple sweetness to it. There's some light malt notes and a slight tartness as well. It's pretty simple, but not bad.
T: Sweet apples and grain/malt up front. There's a lot of cider notes to it and really not all that much of the cream ale. There's a touch of spice, it seems, and a general fruitiness to it.
M: The body is light to medium with a high level of carbonation.
D: This and the New Glarus Apple Ale were/are pretty interesting. I liked it, but at some points I was thinking, I would rather just have a cider.
