New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale
From New Glarus – Apple Ale sings with the fresh crisp taste of Wisconsin Apples. Our Brewmaster, Daniel Carey, begins with a brown ale base employing Wisconsin farmed barley and a blend of apple varieties grown in Gays Mills. Our apple growing friends squeeze them especially for this brew.
New Glarus Brewing – New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 3.8% abv.
Appearance: Pours a vibrant amber gold with a small head of tight bubbles that quickly fades to nothing. The body rather clear, and leaves behind no lacing.
Aroma: Apple juice, cinnamon, light amounts of nutmeg.
Taste: Lots of apple, juicy sweet apple and tangy apple and a little bit of spice. No bitterness to be found. Really just tastes like cider to me.
Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, slightly sticky.
Overall: I’m sure there is barley and hops in this, I just can’t find it. It’s very tasty for what it is. Better than many hard ciders I’ve tried.
