Can purchased at track side liquor in Medicine Hat. Pours golden color with next to no head. Plenty of bubbles.Aromas of apple juice and sugar. Taste is similar to apple juice, somewhat dry. A bit of a crab apple taste. Drinkable, but in moderation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a sparkling golden yellow with minimal short lived white bubbly head. Aroma of sweet ripe apples, fruity. Taste is slightly sweet dry, with some tartness. A crisp light body with light carbonation. Finish is crisp, dry, some tartness, surprisingly not very sweet, almost like a dry white wine. Overall an ok cider.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(500 ml can from Rising Tide) Clear gold-amber with a fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of apple, faint yeast. Mouthfeel a bit spritzy and prickly, not far from soda pop. Flavor of apple juice, faint yeast. Less sweet than most macro-ciders I’ve had from the US, otherwise it’s about the same.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml can. Pours clear yellow with a thin frothy white head that quickly dissipates into an almost non existent white rim. virtually no lacing to speak of. Aroma of apples, fruit. flavour has notes of nuts,and dry apples. Aroma overall is quite weak.Taste is minimal sourness and bitterness, this one is predominantly tart and dry. Of note, this cider has virtually no after taste. The flavour comes on strong and suddenly it’s all gone.Weird. This would be about your average cider except it has some unique characteristics to it that differentiate it...slightly..

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Little head, gold body and lots of carbonation, just about "blah" for a cider. Very, very soft apple aroma, not too exciting for a cider. Flavour is white wine with apples, complex and welcoming in fact. Soft finish. Not one for looks, but this stuff is in fact tasty and worth a try.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This cider was fresh and sweet. From the mellow-yet-musty aroma you could tell it was something different. While presenting a crisp and fairly dry flavor, the aftertaste left the taste buds wanting more. Altogether a pretty good cider, but too bland and simple compared to most.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Artificial aroma of apples. Taste like cheep apple juice with yeast, tartness in background. Sour finish. Nothing special.

On tap @ the Mabie Hotel. Pours amber/orange with no head. The nose is of dry apples. The taste is of more dry, maybe stewed apples too. The palate generally works well - a decent amount of body through the start and middle and a very dry finish. For a massively produced and distributed cider this tastes fine.
