This is not my mug of beer but I have to admit it was very pleasing to drink the 2013 Apple Ale from New Glarus.

The first nose was nothing but bright, crisp apples and a strong musty undertone.

The first taste was nothing but sweet, slightly tart, fresh apples. The finish was still crisp and sweet apples that rounded off at the very end to give a good ale finish.

The color was blood-tinged apple juice and very clear. The head was paper thin.

The cost of this brew at around $9 a four pack is OUTRAGEOUS especially coming in at around 4 or 5 % ABV but its worth a try.

This is what I have always expected from any hard cider but have never found... Good body, sweet fruit, totally pleasing.

The ladies AND guys will be surprised at how good it tastes.
