473ml can. Not sure what to say about this thing. Still haven't had much cider so not much to compare to . Gold, clear, almost sickeningly sweet, but still crisp. My wife hated the smell do much I had to chug the last half, rinse the glass and throw out the can, so there's that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DerWeg (1485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Very clear almost water pale look, slight bubble. Taste is politely mainstream but full and solid with good tart apple and nice acidity on teeth and palate, a pleasure to drink. Aroma clean and tart. Better than macro beer for sure.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Rating #872 - December 29, 2013 - 473ml Can. Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Not as artificial as other growers ciders, this is appley and fresh. Not bad.

solidfunk (3660) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2013
I wouldn’t want to drink a lot of this but its ok. pours golden like fizzy apple juice. Taste a little dry. Sample at Lcbo.

pintbypint (2554) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
473ml can. Pours clear, light yellow, no head. Nose is sweet apple juice. Taste has some tart juice, tangy, drier than the nose would suggests. Plain finish. Medium carbonation and light bodied. Not bad for a macro cider.

Radek Kliber (6373) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma muted , mild aroma, faint hint of apple.
Appearance poured rather pale shade of gold with minimal top.
Flavor and Palate : Light bodied, watery even for cider. Dry carbonation sits in the middle. Slight echo of apple fruit. At least it was refreshing

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
[4642-20120810] 341mL can. Sparkling apple juice aroma. Clear, bright light yellow body with no lasting head. Flavour starts apple-y then dries a little into a nice champagne bubbly with a light tart Jolly Rancher pick-me-up at the end. Light body. Really interesting progression. (6/2+/7/3/14) 3.2

473 mL can. Pours very pale yellow. No head. Light carbonation. Little to no aroma. Taste is light and crisp apple. A hint of sweetness but not syrupy at all. Some depth of flavour, too. Like I said, crisp. Overall a nicely crafted cider. Would have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
March 21, 2012 with blankboy and garthicus. 473ml can c/o blankboy. Very pale clear yellow, nice bubbling, minimal white head (3-). Smells nice enough, alcohol, dry off-dry white wine and generic apple. Taste follows, less wine and more apple character, sweet but not too much so. Light body, decent carbonation, a little acidity to it but it disappears a little fast and ultimately feels a tad watery.
