3.96/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a clear mug.

Appearance: light brown hue with a touch of haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours a thin layer of frothy ivory foam. Not bad.

Smell: the smell of apples is incredibly strong, but it doesn't seem overly cidery, which is interesting. There is a little beer aroma under it, which is nice, but the story here is all apples all the time.

Taste: apples are what is advertised, and apples are what you get. There's a sweetish, malty brown ale underneath, but the apples take over everything. Quite good if that's what you're into.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good fizziness. It works.

Overall: this is a sweet and appley beer. I like it a lot, but it's a bit on the sweet side to just quaff all day.
