Pour is a pee looking yellow with no head. Aroma is sugar with some apple juice thrown in there. Flavor is more sugar with some apple then comes a bittness on the back end. Its a cider not much else to say.

ChainGangGuy (4348) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2009
12 ounce bottle - 1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours out a clear, pale, lightly-hued, yellow body with a touch of green in there as well. Smallish white head. Smell: Sweet-scented aroma of apple juice with negligible hints of alcohol and everso wholesome sulfites. Taste: Sweetish apple flavor tasting of a combo of both Red Delicious and maybe some green Granny Smith apples. One percent of my daily recommended dosage of sodium. Finishes somewhat sweetish, regardless of the "rather dry" bit on the front label and with a lingering of tangy Granny Smith apple character. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Not a terrible little cider, really. Itís sweet without being too sweet, the alcohol isnít really noticeable, and it is very reasonable at a mere, scant 120 calories.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Exceptionally pale yellow pour with no head. Honestly, Bud Light has more color than this. The aroma is apple cider vinegar. Itís sour, like apple juice gone bad. The flavor isnít much better but adds a sort of dusty, musty like quality. The body is quite a let down too. Very dry, acidic, and thin but at least itís not over carbonated. This barely passes for drinkable.

Slipstream (1979) - USA - OCT 12, 2009
Not a good weekend for beer tasting - a few mediocre marzens, a couple of dull ciders. This stuff was the worst. I used to like it, but they appear to have changed their recipe - perhaps put in some cost cutting measures like replacing apples with apple flavor. Nice label. Very pale pour. Bland aroma. This is very much lacking in spark and taste. It only improved when I mixed it with some beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle. A pale golden body with a fizzy white head and a shallow stream of carbonation. Sweet cider y cut up apple slices light apple cider body with some mildly tart apple skins and darker fruit body. My only complaint is this sulfuric finish that seems to stink slightly on the roof of my mouth.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Very fizzy and very dry. Almost like champagne. It goes down easy enough, but I prefer the softer, sweeter, and mushier JK Scrumpy cider.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Crystal clear, pale metalic pour with a faint white trace of a head. Minimal apple aroma. Tart, crisp apple flavor. Sour finish. Not a bad cider.

skoisirius (1571) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2009
We sell a lot of this at work, so I had to try one. Pretty much the same thing Iíve grown to expect from most ciders. Sweet and granny smith appley up front, with touches of spice and tartness with fizzes towards the back. Lightly watery. Still looking for that cider thatís going to blow me away! Recommendations anyone?

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 12 ounce bottle. Pours a very very clear and very pale yellow color with a thin head. Fair head retention ad lacing. Good thing it was free. Drain pour coming. Faint grainy green apple aroma. Taste is grainy tart green apple. Thin bodied. Not much going on here,

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavż in Queens, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2009
$1.50 tick from New Beer. Green stubby bottle. Pint glass pour. Same guys that make Woodchuck. Oh crap. Ingredients: ...less then one percent of: malic acid, NATURAL APPLE FLAVOR(huh?), sorbate and sulfites(yay! :) to preserve flavor. 5%ABV. Faint, almost colorless, clear, generic cream soda color. Lasting, scummy white paste head. Smells exactly like my last pour of Woodchuck, which is nothing more then Y?-grade apples, compost, sulfur & yeast. Taste isnít terrible. Just not appetizing & unbashfully artificial. Soft carbonation, confectioners sugar, severely watered-down apple sauce, old beer residue, dusty preservatives, & a little tin. Half sour, thin, flat Canada Dry finish.
