Drinkable but not very interesting. Golden and well carbonated, it’s got a slightly tart, fresh apple aroma which is reflected in the flavor. Slightly acidic finish.

The aroma is strait forward apple cider, sweet and crisp. The appearance is pale gold with plenty of carbonation. The flavor is sweet and acidic but a little unpleasant. The palate is thin. This is a pretty plain blah cider.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is notes of apple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Simple, but thankfully not overly sweet. Ok.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Picked up in Blacksburg, VA. Cider is clear, anemic pale yellow with a small, white, frohty, mostly and rapidly diminishing head. The aroma is moderate-to-heavy apple juice...nothing else. The flavor is moderately-to-heavily sweet with a short, lightly acidic, trace bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. Just tastes like carbonationed apple juice from concentrate. Totally boring and unremarkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours like a ginger-ale with a fizzy, white head to boot. Aroma and flavor showed more complexity than I expected, with wooden notes and honey along with light vinous sourness to complement the predominant apple presence. Spritzy mouthfeel, dry finish and not as much of the gut-bomb acidity as I’ve found in other ciders. Above average for the style, and an interesting addition to the standard lineup of Guinness products I encountered at a St. Pat’s Day gathering.

Paid $1.49 for a 12-oz single at Whole Foods, Charlottesville. Pours clear ywllow gold with a tiny head. Grossly sweet aroma- but not overly strong. Flavor is not entirely bad, not as sweet as I would have thought, but it’s definitely not something I’m enjoying or would ever sample again.

Bottle-It looked like ginger ale to me, with an apple aroma that left quickly. The taste and palate was like an over bubbly, sugary wine. Vics 1.25

12oz bottle from a Beers of the World sampler. Its gotta make you wonder why something as obscure and offbeat as this would find its way into a sampler pack. These sampler packs just get more and more unrepresentative, filled with the cheapest leftovers they can find. A complete ripoff and way overpriced. The cider was an average ok drink. Yep, apple aroma and apple flavor… Soft, mild, fizzy, sweet, a little watery, and not at all offensive. I sure couldn’t drink more than a couple of these. In fact, I couldn’t drink more than a couple of any cider. But its not bad as a single for a change of pace. I have had worse. I have also had this on draft at The Pub, Jacksonville Beach FL. Pretty much the same on draft or in bottle. The brewery’s web page is down so maybe they got some problems.

Prickly Pears Gift Shop - Mexico Beach, Fl. - 12 oz bottle.Faint, pear juice-like appearance, slighlty murky, not much golden to it, no head. Brief artifical apple-like aroma. Has a club soda like taste to it with a touch of golden delicous apples, almost as if it was added later. Nothing else really jumps out, bland and boring. Spritzy mouthfeel. Medicocre at best.
