One of our younger guests brought a case of this to our Christmas party this year. As a beer lover I was a little put off, thinking it was an apple cider, a beverage which I am not a fan of. All of the younger folk were drinking this during the evening and passing over my offerings of craft beer and macro lagers. When the party was over there were a few bottles left, and being only 5% ABV, I decided to give it a try. The label reads "Ale with natural apple flavor and caramel color" which made me curious so I opened one and gave it a try.

There is a mild, pleasant apple juice aroma which is enticing. Does not taste like beer at all, but like apple juice light. Extremely drinkable and would pair well with any food you would be likely to find at a party. Not overly sweet, but extremely smooth and refreshing. Even as a 63 year old life-long beer lover I was somewhat impressed. Devoid of any bitterness it is an interesting beverage. Good enough that I decided not to discard the remaining bottles. It is much better than apple cider, but somewhat one dimensional. Sweet apple flavor but the finish is, well like drinking apple juice. I can understand why the millennials like this, after drinking apple juice as kids, but it does not have the complexity that a real beer lover would find desirable.

I read a lot of negative feed back but I have to disagree. I love this brew. I've been a fan from the very first one.Crisp refreshing flavor any time, anywhere. Nothing compares. 90% of the time I will buy this over anything in the cooler and there are plenty of choices.only wish they made 30 packs.

From the clear 12 fl. oz. bottle dated Feb 15-2016. Sampled on December 13, 2015

Yellow-golden pour with great clarity and a quick lasting fizzy champagne-like head.

Aroma of apples, apples and apples with a buried malt sweetness. Kind of a wet cardboard thing too.

Thin body.

OK, the taste is a tad better than what the aroma suggests...that is if one likes apples. I happen to like apples so in that regard this beer did what it was supposed to do. Sweet but nothing I will go for again.
