bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 6, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Flowery apple aroma. Light gold color with a white head that went fast. A bit thin. Light carbonation. Starts with sweet green apple. Moves on to a "crisp", slightly tart apple. There is sweetness in the finish, and the mouth is left clean. It’s surprisingly good.

Bottle poured a pale yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of apple with a hint of honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of apple and a touch of honey with a lingering sweet finish. Very refreshing on a 100 degree day like today!

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head that lasts a while for a cider. Aroma of sweet, artificial apples. The taste is tart apples. A bit grainy. Thin bodied. Meh.

GT2 (8685) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
355mL stolen from a random refrigerator. Wow- much better than expected. Taste like mulled apple cider with whipped cream- a nice slickness to the palate with no wateriness or urea sting. Sharp, juicy, tangy, nice vanilla and whipped cream addition. Not bad at all. Nose is a bit lackluster- fresh apples. Pour is spritzy- quickly diminishing weak head. But great straight out of the bottle at a party.
