PorterPounder (5696) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Kind of an artificial flavor to this - not "appley" at all. Very light in appearance - looks like a ginger ale. Bit of an artificial aroma - not akin to apples at all. Not as smooth as the few other ciders I have tried recently.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 The aroma is more of the skin of the apple than the meat. It looks fine, clear yellow with slow carbonation. The taste is clean, but the finish has a metallic feel/taste to it.

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.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2005
A very light yellow body. The aroma is light Braeburn apples and some white wine. The taste is light Jonathon apples. There is also white grape juice and a hitn of wood in the finish. A little dry and I appreciate that in a macro cider.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 31, 2007
This bottled cider from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated orange colored body. The mild aroma was raspberry. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of raspberry apple and red apple. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Very light golden in colour with a thin white head and trillions of small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of tart apples, metal and a bit of bread. Light-bodied; Crisp apple taste with slight hints of citrus. Sweet flavour and not much else showing. Aftertaste is clean and crisp-no offensive qualities. Overall, lighter than most ciders, but more clean and tart than others- a decent choice overall. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia and sampled it on 27-November-2003.

CapFlu (4610) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle) Purchased the Shaws in Freeport, Maine. Very medicinal. Too sweert. I have no idea why a Vermont apple orchard would replicate a Strongbow cider? Very poor.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2004
Dry white wine-like aroma with some apple character present. Very pale with vibrant carbonation. Very sweet apple flavour with some gentle tartness at the sides of the tongue. Champagne-like effervescence but perhaps a touch too carbonated. Plain and simple. Drinkable but not very exciting. On tap at Vermont Pub and Brewery.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 21, 2002
Appearance: hey, looks like cider! Less bubbly than some. Aroma less sweet and overtly apply, more winelike than I expected; rather nice. Flavor is too sweet, not tart enough, very simple, though the alcohol is more noticeable than in Woodchuck’s products. Finishes very dry and quick. A so-so cider; I’d have it again if in the mood for a beer alternative, but won’t seek it out. Oh, and the label on mine is different than in the pic here; it’s very early-Soviet-worker, and pretty cool.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - 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. It’s sweet without being too sweet, the alcohol isn’t really noticeable, and it is very reasonable at a mere, scant 120 calories.
