C.A.L.L. Me Later … CALL stands for Craft Apple Light Lager.  And that's exactly what this beer is.  It drinks like a sweet apple cider with a slightly grainy finish and a clean lager aftertaste.  We used organic apple juice concentrate to sweeten our light lager base beer following fermentation.  It's fizzy, fruity and fun.

For the more serious beer geeks out there or those wanting to know more: why don't we just make a true apple cider?  Simple, a Brewer's Notice allows us to only produce beverages in which >50% of the fermentables come from grain.  A true cider has >50% of the fermentables from fruit derived sugars.  To do this, one would need a Vinter's Licence.  So perhaps someday we will get the required licensing but until then, we'll do what we can to serve the fruit beer community.
