O: Great for the style. Not something I'd drink a ton of but I can't imagine a non sour style apple ale being any better

12oz bottle poured into a tulip
A: Slightly hazy pale brown with a one-finger head
S: Apple cider, a hint of caramel
T: Again apple cider and caramel. Tasty but more reminiscent of fruit juice than beer
M: Light-bodied, a touch sweet
O: Tasty? Absolutely. But if I had this blind I wouldn't think it was beer. I prefer NG's sours

Very nice overall. Pours hazy, fizy head fades fast. Nose and flavor is straight up fizzy apple juice. Mouthfeel is pretty great - well rounded and smooth.
