500mL bottle BBE: Oct 2016. Well-chilled. Pours a crystal clear copper or apple-juice coloured body, with small, tight, off-white head with good lacing. Clean, malt-forward aroma of lightly-baked potato, crisps, some citrus and a hint of strawberry. A light sourness on the tongue is overtaken by a heavy, artificial sweetness, with a hint of bitterness on the finish struggling to break through. The body is light, with a smooth texture, low-medium carbonation and an unpleasant, bittersweet finish. As a whole, this doesn’t work for me. It gives the impression of a cheap cider mixed with a bland, uninspiring base ale. Maybe a beer to attract newcomers to the craft, but not one to keep them there.

Lonick (1029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours hazy golden. Sweet on the nose, apples and general fruitiness. Big apple flavour on the taste but a bit too sweet for me.

Cunningham (6059) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2015
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Quite fruity. And yes you can notice the apple feeling. A mix between beer and cider. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok body and an average carbonation.

juffage (163) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
50ml bottle from Beerhive, Edinburgh. I didn’t think it was as bad as the overall rating on here seems to suggest. Pretty simple and straightforward, yes, but, unique and refreshing enough - perfect for drinking outside on one of the last nice days of the year. Especially enjoyed the mouthfeel, it was soft but lively, and quenching. Not too ’cidery’ thankfully, either. Applesauce, fairly sweet.

ATulloch (146) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from tesco. Pours a clear golden with a light bubbly head with nice lacing. Aroma is crushed apple and lime. Taste is similar with sharp Apple dominating. Not as nice as I was expecting but at least it was finished.

Cool bottle. Nice appearance and delicious aroma. A little too sour in the taste for my liking.

niquillis (2147) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Keg at Drygate. Pours golden mushed apple. Quite a sweet apple taste, dryness of lager malt, it’s Ok but a little too sweet. Refreshing on a glorious summer’s day in Glasgow.
