Apple Ale New Glarus Brewing Co. New Glarus, Wi.

An intriguing exercise from New Glarus, an apple ale with so much apple character that the uninitiated might assume they are drinking a cider /beer blend. But this is a beer, with a brown ale base that nicely balances the blend of six apple varieties. Our tasters enjoyed this refreshing summery brew.

"Apple nose, but not cidery, it's a whole different kind of apple character," said taster Gregg Glaser.

"The nose is mild apple," said Tom Conti, "and good apple flavor right up front. Bright apple character, fruity and it finishes nice and clean."

"Like an apple cider mixed with Calvados, with an apple must, or unfermented apple aspect to it," said Ernie Adamo. "Would be nice with cheese or salad."

"Very grainy, crystally grainy flavor, with sweet applesauce," said Phil Simpson, "and a little note of pepper. I wasn't sure about this, but I like it."

"Delicious apple sweetness, a nice clean fruit beer for summer," said Robert Lachman.
