HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
500ml can. First cider rating. Crisp, sweet, a little tart. Finish is not dry. Refreshing. About what I’d expect, I guess. A pretty good beverage.

shorlin (636) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
My first ever cider rating, so I don’t have much of a reference point. Generally fizzy, tastes a lot like tart apples. Good mouthfeel actually, decent sweet finish. Not earth-shattering, but OK for a try.

Freaky_tiki (483) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
I got a buddy who loves beer but can drink it cuz of a severe intolerance that makes him super sick. So he drinks whiskey (yay!), gluten-free beer (boo) or cider (iffy). And this cider is somewhere on the tightrope of iffy. A bit better than the ginger ale apple concrete style of many brands, but far from the artisanal cider that I admire. I want character in my drinks & this doesn’t have that. But it is a decent final drink after a night of drinking.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Rating #867 - Notes from previous tastings. Have had this on tap and from tallboy cans. Clear, pale yellow colour, fairly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is pleasant, not unbearingly sweet. The best of the beasts.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Can. Dark golden, medium carbonation. Aroma is lightly spiced apples, some gipsum. The palate is fairly macro-cider-typical, but lighter on the syrup/sweet factor and finishing very dry. So extra points for actually not disgusting me, but still not my type of cider.

Gerbeer (1688) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
On tap, pours a copper color with no head. Aromas of spiced apples. Flavors of dried baked apples. No carbonation. OK as an apple flavoured drink.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Tall can. Pours golden, high carbonation. Nose of slight apple, farmyard. Moderate tannin. May have some artificial flavouring but not definite. Fairly tart. As JoeMcPhee said it’s like a Magners/Bulmers, a tad lighter... for an industrial cider actually this was quite good, who cares who made it that doesn’t factor into my ratings.

czar (4159) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
can. pours unclear light golden with a small white cap. red apple skin, woodsy and yeasty notes, touch of caramel, rock candy-like, bit of chalk, fresh fruitiness, some sweetness. average carbonation - a tad prickly, light body, relatively dry finish. decent macro cider.

Canmoore (242) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
Can from the LCBO, this is a maco cider imported to Canada from the UK. This cidar pours a rich golden hue, with a fizzy head. The aroma notes include sour apples, ripe fruit, flowery, and a little pungent. Tasting notes include sweet apple, snappy tartness, and a medium dry finish Not bad, but there are far better Ciders our there.

Deep gold. Sweet apple aroma. Magners-esque. A touch of skin flavour/tannins. Refreshing though.
