look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A- Pours a murky brown color with a finger of white creamy head. Head vanishes rather quickly and leaves no lacing.

S- Mostly apples with a relatively sweet malt backbone. The caramel isn't very pronounced, but it is there lingering in the background.

T- Hmmm, the apples definitely show up but nothing else really does. It's a little bit tart, but I was really hoping the caramel would show up more in it. There is a touch of spice, but the apples really dominate it.

M- Slightly prickly mouthfeel with a medium body. Good mouthfeel overall.

D- Well, the taste really didn't do it for me which hurt it's drinkability. I'm normally a fan of anything with apples in it so I had really high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, it fell short.

Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.

The color is a bit of a cloudy brownish orange with some slight head and no lacing.

The smell is apple, and apple, and apple. Not a surprise here,

The taste us just what you'd expect, apple with some cinnamon flavor keep up with you ever so slightly.

The feel of this beer is light and does not come off as a cider but a beer that still retains that same apple flavor.

I drank this into a tasting glass at EBF.

The beer pours a murky brown ale with a light tan head that doesn't provide much retention or good lacing.

The aroma is a bitter apple, almost like a sour cider.

The taste is very similar but is even more bitter without the sweetness of apple or caramel that you would be expecting so in that sense very disappointing.
