3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light honey color with a white ring. Aroma is apples and spices. Very apple cider like aroma. Definately smell some of that vintage cider aroma. Flavor is a like crisp apple with some of the body and spice you get in cider. Decent body.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I had acouple bottles of this last year and I did not think would be on a beer rating site. Nice apple aroma, but the flavor was not as I expected. I thought it would actually taste like cider, but it had other stuff mixed in and did not go down as enjoyable as I had hoped.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 My bottle says ’amber draft’ so I don’t know if ’draft cider’ is the same. Smells like apple juice. Tastes like a whiskey cooler blend. Disappointing, not a real pure cider. It’s some kinda mix. Ingredients on label say: cider, carbonated water, dextrose, fructcose, citric acid,artificial flavors, carmel color, potassium sorbate & sulfuring agents....
This product should not even be listed on ratebeer.com’s website. Pretty crappy for a cider, if it truly is one. At least it don’t have a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Pours weak gold with an aroma of apple and pear. Taste is more apple, with a bit of white wine in the background. Palate is bubbly. Very sweet taste. It’s not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden color with good carbonation. Probably one of the best tasting for the mass market, but still not a good cider in my opinion.
Aroma of carbonated apples and some spice.
The sweet aftertaste will get to you after 2-3.
