Quite different.  It has a slight bitterness to it.  Not my favorite, but not at all a bad beer.  It did pair well with one thing I cooked (forget what though).

The company has another beer called the Pch Mortel, which is even better, but this one I can actually find to buy

Being a varied product, a lot of beer can be the worst thing one has tasted. Just in the lager department I've tasted piss and nectar.

I've had the former, but not the latter.  Looking forward to them.

My favourite, from the Norwegian brewery Ngne :
"A rich, malty and very bitter ale. Cascade hops provide a long, fruity and spicy after-taste"  Mmmmmmm!
 
But this evening I will have to make do with this ordinary thing:
It's good, but it's nothing special.

Aass and Frydenlund are my usual choices, though Ngne 's beer's are frankly some of the best I have ever tasted. Thumbs Up

This isn't very good, but maybe that's because it's 100 degrees F outside and it took me five hours to cut the grass.  Dead

^ I think it's more likely that your disappointment comes from expecting anything good from an apple spiced ale made by Blue Moon

I like most Blue Moon products (their pumpkin ale is quite good), but this one was bad.  It's bland.  It won a contest on Facebook apparently.  The runners up were a blackberry tart ale and a chocolate bacon ale.

I have become increasingly wary when it comes to fruit and other flavored beers. I refuse to drink anything by Dogfish Head on principal (even though their IPAs are not bad) because they burned me one to many times with their ridiculous flavors. Lately I've been enjoying the simplicity of British beers.

Well, I'm one of the twelve people who actually liked Samuel Adams' cranberry lambic that used to be in their Christmas collection.

I like variety so I enjoy fruity beers.  I quite like Michelob Ultra's line of flavored beers.

^I think I liked that one too, and their Cherry Wheat is not bad. I also quite enjoyed Magic Hat's Elderberry seasonal, until I got tired of it.

The cherry wheat is one of my favorite beers.  The elderberry one was good.  Have you had SA's blackberry witbier?  You might like it if you liked the cranberry lambic.

Yes, I have tried it but I didn't like it much. I generally stay away from wheat beers, but sometimes if it's a particularly good one and it's a hot summer day I will drink them.

I also picked up six of these, and for a black ale, it is outstanding.

I too prefer Aass, but Ringnes is pretty good too IMO. I'm enjoying a cool Ringnes as I'm writing this as a matter of factBeer
