Single from NBD. Point doesnít make the worst beer int he world, so this shouldnít be too bad. First ingredient is... "Cider Base". ŅQue?
Unatural, beer-like, rich, tall, lather head. Clear, golden bronze body. Active body.
Smell is forced. Red & green artificial apple candy. Maybe some melon & strawberry candy essence too. Half a cup of sugar, a touch caramelized or syrupy. Medicinal even. A bit too much extra acid.
Taste is all about candied & sour apple flavor. Melon & lemon. Some cardboard near the end.
Syrupy feel, acidic, heavily carbonated.
Such a sugar headache...

. I donít have any complaints! Great cider. Iíve tried many of the popular ciders Magners, Strongbow, Harppon, Woodchuck, Crispin, Angry Orchard, etc. This is the best Iíve had. Harpoon, then Strongbow, then Apple Orchard follow.
This cider has more carbonation and produces more of a head than other ciders. There is not a ton of carbonation but more than the others Iíve tried.
It is best to not pour a cider like you would a beer but just pour it straight down so it agitates and produces a little foam too. Thatís how to get the best flavor.
This cider has great flavor. Iím really glad I picked it up and gave it a try. I would compare it to Harpoon or Strongbow the most. It has a very similar taste but Iíd say itís sweeter (more flavor) and more carbonation. This also has 5% alcohol percentage so it gets the edge for me.
I wanted to sign up to review this because I was searching for reviews when I was in the store and I know itís fairly new.

Pours fizzy yellow with just a few bubbles. Aroma is sweet, sugary apples like granny smith. Flavor is same but with more sugar like jolly rancher candy. Iím not saying it doesnít taste good, its just prolly innappropriate.

I would agree with critics of this cider to the extent that it is a very attractive, alluring cider--drinkable, a bit sweet, and not very sophisticated. I would also be happy to agree with anyone who finds most American ciders to be knock-offs of a basic hard cider formula...formulaic. However, among those ciders, this one was drinkable and in particular had some of the best apple notes in the flavor of any. I donít think that apple flavors are the key or sine qua non of great ciders, but it helped this one along with a certain crispness. Not great cider in the English tradition, but decent drinking.

Pours a golden hue with no head. Big fresh apples on the nose. Iím expecting a classic cider flavor except this cider is way too sweet. Like jerk you out of your chair sweet. Tone down the sweetness a little and this would be solid.
