    Anybody tried these apple ales that around in the stores now? What do you think they are? I haven't tried one, but i guess they are apple flavored blonde ale? like a strawberry blonde, but with apple? I plan on trying one at some point in the near future.

    Basically this. I've had a taste of the Redd's Apple Ale. It says "Brewed like an ale" on the label, but I'm not sure what they're marketing for here... A bit too sweet in my opinion. Not crazy sweet, just a bit over the top. And I thought it tasted thin as well.
    So yeah, I guess a blond ale with some apple flavoring and back sweetened to get the chicks to like it is probably the process.

    I have little faith in commercial brewers to do something like this right ......

    he drinks like a girl. the only beer he tolerates (doesn't actually like) is miller lite. basically, if he likes it, i won't.

    My wife can tolerate Redd's which means sweet and no yeast or alcohol presence.

    Lotsa noses in the air in here.... B-)

    But...I haven't tried one yet, either. I'm guessing it's a "malt beverage" with apple flavor. I'm the anti-snob beer snob and these scare me. Maybe I'll try it next week...you know...for research...

    I saw these the other day and the packaging seemed eerily like red dog beer, this immediately brought on a flashback to all the wretching that came after several pitchers of red dog and about a full bottle of jäger, oddly, I still enjoy jäger after a big meal, the red dog, not so much.

    So no redd for me, it might be fantastic, but the packaging scares me.

    you should re-evaluate your whole life if these are the decisions you're making.
