Reviewed from session notes.

A. Saturated golden color with a single finger head that fizzles out in about a minute and didn't leave much lacing behind.

S. Tart and sour apple aroma all the way.

T. Lightly soured apples hit at first and resolve sweeter at a gentle pace due to the cream ale base, but also has a puckery acidity in the finish that you typically get from a dry cider.

M. Medium body and carbonation levels, good medium length for the finish.

It really does come across as more like a cider than a beer. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but be aware before you consume and you won't get something you weren't expecting!

Apples...Apples...Apples.
If you want your beer to taste like apples, then go for this stuff. Its pretty good:
A- Cider-like darkness. Strong coloration
S- Soury apples...Slightly citrus. Bready, yeasty
T- Right on par with what you would expect. Very appleish. Fun taste. Not overwhelming, but solid.
M- Not too watery. Nothing spectacular, but decently solid body.
O- A fun beer to drink to change things up. Sour apples taste great, and they go well with beer. Top to bottom, not the most impressive beer I've ever had, but still a pretty solid brew.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A- Pours a golden color with a slight head that is pure white.

S- Smells very sour. Smells just like a Flemish brown ale. distinctly of apples and yeast.

T- Taste is right off the bat distinctly of apples mixed with bananas. Ends with a very sweet taste. Perfect for people who love sour and sweet.

M- gives a immediate sour sting that ends with a smooth sweet finish. Has a bubully coarse mouth feel.

Overall a Great Cream Ale. I can't help but think of Spotted Cow when I drink this. It is literally like an apple flavored Spotted Cow. Very good, Would definitely buy again.

Pours a dark gold color with half finger white head that dissipates quickly. Crystal clear.

Nose gives off notes of vanilla, butterscotch, and browned apples. Smells a bit like diacetyl.

Taste is tart, slightly sweet, very bitter in an aspirin/cigarette sort of way, and makes my mouth pucker up.

Moderate to low carbonation. Creamy. Overall a rather disappointing beer. A cool concept, but poorly executed. Pretty bad taste with a worse aftertaste. Maybe this would be better fresh?

This beer poured out as a dark golden color with a thin white head on top that doesn't really stick around very long. The smell of the beer had a pretty nice light apple cider like aroma to it. The taste of the beer was pretty good but it just doesn't have a whole lot of apple punch to it. The mouthfeel has a thin body, lightly carbonated and kind of watery. Overall I feel that this beer could be pretty awesome if Furthermore could just kick it up a notch in the flavors. I would drink it again though because I really like Apple Ales.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a 12oz Pilsner Glass

Appearance - Pours a slightly dark golden color with a slight haziness and 1 finger head that stays around for a minute before disappearing. Lots of carbonation at first before tapering off.

Smell - There's some apple cider in here along with some yeast and surprisingly prevalent malty notes. The smell kind of reminds me of a dry cider like Strongbow.

Taste - The strongest flavor is easily the apple cider and the fruity notes. You can also taste the malts, but the yeast smell is nowhere to be found in the flavor; Probably because of the strong cider flavor. The aftertaste is fairly dry, consisting of just a bittersweet apple flavor.

Mouthfeel - This is a VERY smooth and easy beer to drink. It's got a fairly light body and the carbonation is very tame, so it makes for an easy drink. In terms of drinkability, this is what a Cream Ale should feel like!

Overall - The flavor will be off putting to some of those who are not familiar with dry ciders or with those who don't like their beers with fruity flavoring. Aside from that, this is a pretty good Cream Ale, it drinks like a Cream Ale should!

At the time of this review, this is the #27 top Cream ale according to the beeradvocate Top Beers - Cream Ale list, served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Beer is light amber, hazy, no head, moderate carbonation, no lacing.

Aroma is sweet, apples, cidery, mild grain.

Beer is light in body and really unimpressive. Really unimpressive. Grainy at the finish, light and apple-y up front with a creaminess to the whole thing. This was an extra in a trade and this is also a style I don't really like, I've had much better cream ales though, this was a big disappointment.

A: Poured a nice clear color of golden deliciousness. nice thick layer of foamy goodness on top.

S: The smell is of granny smith apples ripe from the tree.

T: Taste is much of the same, with hints of jolly rancher sour apple in the back end.

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth, nice carbonation level.

O: Would definitley drink this one again, very nice and easy to drink.

First had: bottle at Pinocchio's beer garden, Media, PA

Thanks to Andrew for sharing.

Poured a ambery-orange color, actually kind of reminiscent of a lighter apple juice. Little to no head to speak of, but some little carbonation bubbles here and there. Didn't get too much from the aroma, possibly because I was mainly smelling the cleaning solution of the glass...unless that actually was the beer. But sticking my nose in a little further, I detected just a bit of apple sweetness, surely more juice-like than cider-like. Taste was moderately decent, with light apples, sugar, and pale malts. I didn't really get much of a "cream ale" feel from it, honestly. Pretty light in the mouth, and just a bit filmy. Decent overall and fairly drinkable, but a bit bland and watery for me.

Transcribed from notes dtd Sa, 09 Oct 2010.

My aggressive pour netted me two-plus fingers of eggshell-white head with excellent retention. There was no need to lean in for a sniff – the nose was like having bitten into a Red Delicious. Color was a beautiful golden-amber with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was medium with crisp apple tartness on the tongue. The label read “Cream Ale brewed with Apple Cider”, but the apple flavor was dominant. Finish was crisp and dry, but the effervescence lent it a quality that ordinary hard cider seems to lack. I am betting that the ABV is relatively low, making it perfect for a slow autumn afternoon.

Pours a clean orange-ish/ yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, like a mellow apple cider. In the taste, mellow apple cider, but not as acidic as cider. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry cider like aftertaste. More a cider than a beer.

Poured at Bocktown on Thursday, fine pale hazed godlen hue with a complimentary white head, fine even alcing scattered in specks.

Aromatics offer up tart green apple with a sense of cereal grain malts backing it up, no real hop notes to present to the table.

Flavors combine not overtly cider qualities with a nice cream ale recipe, a beautiful mix of apple cider Granny Smith tartness with a sweet light corn infused golden ale.

Mouthfeel is light bodied slightly acidic, with moderate even carbonation nothing that blows the next beer you will drink out of the water so it's at least worthy a try.

Drinkability: Solid all around hybrid style that I hope to see more of, I like cider and a decent mass produced cream ale. Blend these two styles together and you have a nice mix of the two. Keep it going solid quality overall good experience.

Thanks to Jeff for sending me this one.

A: The beer is super carbonated and the pour results in a massive white head that takes quite some time to settle down. Eventually one can see a clear orange-straw colored beer.

S: There's definitely a big cider note to the nose which provides a nice apple sweetness to it. There's some light malt notes and a slight tartness as well. It's pretty simple, but not bad.

T: Sweet apples and grain/malt up front. There's a lot of cider notes to it and really not all that much of the cream ale. There's a touch of spice, it seems, and a general fruitiness to it.

M: The body is light to medium with a high level of carbonation.

D: This and the New Glarus Apple Ale were/are pretty interesting. I liked it, but at some points I was thinking, I would rather just have a cider.

Pours a golden apple juice color with a thick white head that sticks around and no real lacing. Smells like apples and some little cream beer. Tastes like apple cider with some mild cream ale mixed in. Mouthfeel is medium with a little carbonation. Drinkability is decent.

12 oz bottle.

It pours a light apple juice color with a foamy white head.

Smells like apple juice mixed with vanilla icing.

Cream ales just aren't my thing I guess. It is like drinking vanilla/malt/apple flavored soda.

Non beer drinkers will like it

Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a clear golden color with a white collared head. It honestly looks like apple juice. Sweet apple cider aroma in the nose with little else, maybe some slight spice. Sweet apple flavor upfront wtih some tartness, some cherry flavors as well. This beer is pretty sweet but it's decent for a fruit beer. Having had New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale today, I would say this is an ok substitute but not as good as teh NG. Medium/light mouthfeel.

Clear golden color with a large white head that had excellant retention before settling to a thick cap. Heavy sheets of lacing is left on the glass. Do not remember many cream ales looking as good as this one. Aroma is a combination of green apples and cereal malt. The apple juice added something to this beer. It is well represented in the flavor as well. Adds an interesting, tart, green apple flavor that compliments the otherwise bland and uninteresting malt. Hop bitterness is non-existant. The beer may be just a bit undercarbonated for the style. Otherwise the body is good. A little bit more body than what is typically a lighter beer. Not something I could drink a lot of especially considering the high ABV. But a cream ale that is a little bit more interesting than most.

Poured into a Victory Pint

A: Pours a copper/amber with lots of carbonation and about an inch and half of fluffy/fizzy head. There is plenty of clarity from one side of the glass to the other. This beer looks like a sparkling wine.

S: Some malt and yeast with lots of apple in the flavor in the nose of this beer.

T: The flavor is of a crisp and sweet apple, and a slight touch of vinegar tartness. The vinegar tartness at the end is very subtle.

M: Mouth is very crisp, with lots of carbonation.

D: A drinkable beer as it is light and has a good flavor, but really how much apple beer can a person take. For me I am only going to have one.

Pours a dark gold color with a slight head which gives way to little lacing. The aroma is of fall apple's and a hint of spices. Not a hop aroma or malt aroma around though, but the smell is pleasant. The taste is of apple cider with hints of nutmeg and fall spices, its a nice flavor, no beer flavor but a nice mellow drink. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall I think its a very drinkable beer, its a very easy drink and a nice change of pace. A great beer for sitting outside in slightly chilly weather. The taste is of apple cider, but I don't think that is a bad thing either.
