The beer pours a brown, copper and amber in color. There is a short and short-lived head of off-white. The aroma is toasted caramel malt and lots of apple; apple juice, apple cider, and a bit of apple vinegar. The taste is a delicious meld of brown ale and fresh squeezed apple cider. It drinks with a very fine, yet intense carbonation. It is refreshing and delicious. I would take this over a hard cider any day.
