Pours an apple juice color with no head. Smells like apples. Taste has a sweet apple taste too it. Mouthfeel is hoppy and watery. Lacked the crispness of a hard cider. Overall, I feel this beer is okay. But, I would for an actual hard cider if I'm in the mood for apples.

I bought a six-pack of Redd's Apple Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pilsner glass.

Pours a crystal clear gold color with a little fizz but no head to speak of.

Smell is a little like a artificial apple juice aroma.

Taste is OK. Not what I would call a beer flavor, not bitterness. More of a sparkling cider.

Mouthfeel is also cidery, somewhat cloying.

Overall an OK beverage. I guess it's an ale, but I'm not sure I'd call it a beer.

Look: Artificial amber with no head to speak of.

Smell: We have apple trees on my property. After the apples fall off and have been sitting on the ground for a few weeks this is what it smells like.

Taste: Much better than the aroma, and actually pretty enjoyable. Like a mildly hard cider.

Feel: Slightly carbonated apple juice.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. Don't get me wrong, there are far better examples of apple ales out there, but this is an entirely enjoyable and drinkable option.
