4/5  rDev -3.1%

A: medium amber with slight haze; 2-3 fingers of ivory foam

S: apple and spice - lots of apple juice and apple pie aromas

T: fruity and sweet - honestly tasted like organic apple juice - hints of spice you'd probably associate with an apple-based dishes during the fall and winter, like clove or nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice...

M: light, fresh, and brisk; clean-finishing, modest carbonation, touch of tartness

O: I'm not sure what to make of a beer that tastes this much like apple juice - if that's what you're looking for, you might want to go as high as a 4.5, but for me, as a stand-alone product, for which I had no expectations, it was a good-tasting, easy-drinking ale that went real easy on the abv, but not necessarily what I'm inclined toward in an ale.
