look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into Cheers drinking mug. Served chilled...

A) Honey colored brew that even with an aggressive pour yielded just under a finger of soapy head. The head quickly dissipated to a collar. No lacing...

S) Light malt, grains, grass and granny smith apples.

T) Like a beer/hard cider combo. The apple component was similar to a Strongbow cider or Woodchuck Granny Smith. The finish is quite grassy/leafy, almost the flavor one might imagine they'd find chewing up twigs, or eating the entire apple core.

M) Medium to lighter medium body. This starts out with the pleasing smoothness one might expect from a good cream ale, but quickly drifts into an aftertaste that is zesty/prickly and lingering. This coats the palate, and decreases the quality of the mouthfeel experience.

O) I can appreciate what the brewer is going for here, but as far as apple beers are concerned, I guess I prefer the all in approach, like New Glarus's Apple Ale. This one has some nice cream ale qualities, but the apple cider incorporated into the process just doesn't work for me. I found it pretty interesting, but not as enjoyable as I was hoping for. Even so, it was worth a try. Cheers...

Reviewed from session notes.

A. Saturated golden color with a single finger head that fizzles out in about a minute and didn't leave much lacing behind.

S. Tart and sour apple aroma all the way.

T. Lightly soured apples hit at first and resolve sweeter at a gentle pace due to the cream ale base, but also has a puckery acidity in the finish that you typically get from a dry cider.

M. Medium body and carbonation levels, good medium length for the finish.

It really does come across as more like a cider than a beer. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but be aware before you consume and you won't get something you weren't expecting!

Apples...Apples...Apples.
If you want your beer to taste like apples, then go for this stuff. Its pretty good:
A- Cider-like darkness. Strong coloration
S- Soury apples...Slightly citrus. Bready, yeasty
T- Right on par with what you would expect. Very appleish. Fun taste. Not overwhelming, but solid.
M- Not too watery. Nothing spectacular, but decently solid body.
O- A fun beer to drink to change things up. Sour apples taste great, and they go well with beer. Top to bottom, not the most impressive beer I've ever had, but still a pretty solid brew.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark gold color with half finger white head that dissipates quickly. Crystal clear.

Nose gives off notes of vanilla, butterscotch, and browned apples. Smells a bit like diacetyl.

Taste is tart, slightly sweet, very bitter in an aspirin/cigarette sort of way, and makes my mouth pucker up.

Moderate to low carbonation. Creamy. Overall a rather disappointing beer. A cool concept, but poorly executed. Pretty bad taste with a worse aftertaste. Maybe this would be better fresh?

This beer poured out as a dark golden color with a thin white head on top that doesn't really stick around very long. The smell of the beer had a pretty nice light apple cider like aroma to it. The taste of the beer was pretty good but it just doesn't have a whole lot of apple punch to it. The mouthfeel has a thin body, lightly carbonated and kind of watery. Overall I feel that this beer could be pretty awesome if Furthermore could just kick it up a notch in the flavors. I would drink it again though because I really like Apple Ales.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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!

At the time of this review, this is the #27 top Cream ale according to the beeradvocate Top Beers - Cream Ale list, served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Beer is light amber, hazy, no head, moderate carbonation, no lacing.

Aroma is sweet, apples, cidery, mild grain.

Beer is light in body and really unimpressive. Really unimpressive. Grainy at the finish, light and apple-y up front with a creaminess to the whole thing. This was an extra in a trade and this is also a style I don't really like, I've had much better cream ales though, this was a big disappointment.

A: Poured a nice clear color of golden deliciousness. nice thick layer of foamy goodness on top.

T: Taste is much of the same, with hints of jolly rancher sour apple in the back end.

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth, nice carbonation level.

O: Would definitley drink this one again, very nice and easy to drink.
