Apples + Beer = ?

I love green apple flavoured products. There’s something about the cold and crisp sourness to it that gets my taste buds dancing. Recently I discovered something called Green Apple Beer.

Green apple beer

Straight forward to the point, the company says that the drink is a miracle of science and is brewed in Burlington, Ontario (a city in Canada, west of Toronto). They apparently brew the beer first before combining it with natural apple juice and essence. There are no additives or preservatives, “just science” that created this beverage. While this all sounds good, how about the taste?

In my opinion, my senses were absolutely confused. Taking a swig of this tall, cold can (as directed on the bottle to serve ice cold), one minute it tasted like green apple and then a second later it would taste like a typical beer and eventually it would taste like both combined together. Personally, I don’t really think the two flavours mix well together. Green apple is a fun flavour and the beer just seemed to dampen the taste. However, it’s interesting what innovative ideas people come up with. The big trend this year is root beer flavoured beer, which I have yet to try. It sounds interesting enough, so I’ll get to that eventually! 🙂

    Nickel Brook Brewing Company makes a fantastic stout called “Old Kentucky Bastard” that is one of the most enjoyable beers for winter, with the most intense chocolate and whisky notes ever. One could sip it like a fine wine. Sad to hear that this apple one wasn’t up to par.
