Default Redd's Apple Ale

Just saw this last night at Wegmans. It is advertised as "The brew with a crisp apple bite", and "Crisp like an apple, brewed like an ale". I haven't tried it yet, but was wondering if anyone else has.

Is it a commercially made graff or just a hard cider?

I had my first one last night. First few sips didn't impress me, but I found what I liked at the bottom of the bottle. I was curious if was a graff of sorts as well. A quick google search says it's a fruit style beer made by Miller brewing. Seems to be a niche brew where some of the Twisted flavors fall short.
I'd buy a six pack in the future and the wife asked me to make something like it already.

It says its made with real natural Apple flavor, no mention of juice so I would be hard pressed to say that its a graff or cider, but rather an Apple flavored beer. Probably made for people who don't like the taste of beer

And those people I venture to suggest are terrorists :-)

Taste like piss, lol. No but seriously it sucks. Apple flavor is very light, has no head for being an ale, an the carbonation don't last. Also very expensive. I won't buy this again not suggest anyone else do so.

Yeah seriously not impressed. I felt like I was drinking a beer flavored with apple. It just wasn't good at all.

Thanks for the reviews all! I was tempted to buy some of this, but I'll steer clear of it. It sounds exactly like what I didn't want it to be.
