Awesome 12oz bottle from laymansbeerfan (thanks!) who is generous beyond belief. Shared with my wife in 8oz tasters.

A: Darker, clear gold, with some white head that does fade quickly.

S: Exactly what you would hope for from a New Glarus apple beer; red apple sweetness, hearty apple cider, definite malt breadiness, some brown sugar, suggestions of spices and cinnamon on the finish.

T: Apple and bready malt, akin to apple cider but with light/moderate malt backbone and enhanced body. Sweetness is moderate with suggestions of brown sugar and caramel. I get more red apple than green apple, but there is some fruity tartness as well.

MF: Light/medium body, higher carbonation, with some creamy tones and flashes of tartness.

O: Impressive beer, takes the apple ale game to another level. Flavors are reminiscent of the best apple ciders, with enhanced body and malt backbone. Suggestions of caramel malt lends a nice layer of complexity, but this beer is really as straightforward as the name. Well done.
