2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Found this cider beer comba at the Ba Runi. Smells a little like apple. Taste is of course apple cider with more apple than I expected. Lager beer fer sure in the background. Looks like pale lager. Borders on sweet, a little more sweetness than I expected for a cider like beer. Iím used to the dry ciders, now. Decent co2. Not bitter to say the least. Yes, just simply an apple falvored beer, not many of those out there. Finish is just plain apple lager even tho it says cream ale on the label.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was very fizzy and reduced to nothingness in less than a minute. Smelled of biscuity malt and apple juice. Dry on the tongue with delicate acidity. Tasted predominantly of apple cider with a biscuity malt backbone. Eh.

I guess I hadnít appreciated, when I read the front label, that it was actually brewed with apple cider. But now that I see that, it helps to explain a bit. Definitely tart, though not as deliciously acidic as a good cider; murky body is echoed in the somewhat messy flavors, with a thicker than normal palate from the cream ale influence. But I have to echo the comments made by others that I would just prefer a good cider. And, for that matter, I would prefer a cream ale, too. Bottle.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a bright orange amber body thatís 100% filtered with a white head. The aroma is cheap crappy macro lager with a dash of apple cider. The flavor is actually decent with a dry apple cider but no residual sugars as it finishes really clean and drinks like water. Tart apple cider meets toasty pale malts. Average tart cidery palate. Simplistic but would be refreshing on a really hot day.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Ughsmash. If ever there was a beer that poured like a soda, this one is it. Pours just like a clear apple juice with a fizzy white head and lots of fat carbonation bubbles quickly rising to the surface. Very spritzy like a glass of soda. The head is gone within a minute and leaves no lace. Aroma of weak malt and apple. The flavor is again weak malt with some apple. Very low bitterness at the finish. On a positive note, this beer is refreshing, but then again, so is a glass of water. Mediocre.

12 oz bottle. Clear orangeade with a fluffy white head that leaves some spots. Odd nose of apple yoghurt and starch. A crisp apple bite quickly fades to hay and lemon cookies. Medium light, minimal carb.

12 oz bottle purchased at Blue Max in Burnsville, Minnesota. Pour is clear golden orange with a few visible carbonation bubbles and a frothy one inch white head that falls fast. Aroma of grainy malt, corn and brightly sweet apple juice. Taste is exactly the nose; grainy malt, corn huskiness and sweet apple juice. Palate ios thin to medium, coats the mouth a bit, lingering corny apple taste. This tastes exactly like a cream ale with apple juice - just as the label says so extra point for that. However, I donít think I am wild about this marriage.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber, white cover. Aroma is a clash of sour apple and sweet corn. The taste is more pleasant, light tart apple most of the way through, then a finish of corn and sweet malt. These flavors do best when they donít try to meld.

12 oz. bottle via trade with tytoanderso - Pours a clear golden color with a medium size off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is a soapy, faint apple. Flavor is light apple, very light grain, and light herbal hops. Light to medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Tyler.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head.
The aroma is very apple-y, sort of sweet smelling, with some tartness and a fair dose of yeastiness.
The flavor is banana bread right up front, this turns to more focus on tart apples and light toasted malt. The beer is fairly sweet, perhaps a little too sweet. I like the apple flavor here no doubt.
