Ok cider. I thought it was better than the reviews I have seen given for it on rate beer. The color is clear and pale, the tase is apple juice and the alcohol taste was absent.

ON the tap at the brewery it is good locally grown apple juice infused with Harpoon’s own ale yeast. It eats up the brew keeping the sugar down and that fresh apple flavor. Good fruit juice (especially apple) is great and they have taken a no nonsense approach to making a tart cider for beer drinkers with some body....They have succeeded! Looks just like clear apple juice.

On tap at the Bell in Hand Tavern in Boston. Clear pale gold with no head. There are scattered bubbles of effervescence rising to the surface suggesting light carbonation. Pleasant aroma of apples with some fruit sweetness. The flavor is apples along with some slightly musty apple skin. Refreshing after a walk on a warm humid day.

granted light it color but a great cider overall, not too sweet like others that shall remain nameless.

Pours a very pale yellow, resembling sparking cider. Was balanced between sweet and tart at first, but after awhile, the tart started to dominate.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours almost clear (as pale yellow as I have ever seen) with a very small white head. Very light body and almost no aroma. Taste is light boring apple juice. This was very disapointing, if you like taste avoid this beer.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with quickly recedes to hug rim. Sour apple aromas. Sharp, sour apple upfront turning dry with a slight medicinal finish.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Light pale yellow pour with almost no head yet definitely carbonated. Aroma of tart apple, pear, and sugar. Flavor is certainly what you would expect from a cider but this is a very weak flavored one. Not bad or offensive just weak. OK.

Sampled at the brewery in Boston. An average cider with notes of apple and lots of sugar.
