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.

Draft at Penny Lane. Smells like apples, typical appearance, maybe a bit on the lighter side of yellow. Quite sweet, standard apple flavors. Decent, no off flavors, but nothing to get worked up over.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Draft at the Indian River Brewing Company in Melbourne, FL. It had a small sized white head with fine-large sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent. The nose reminded me of wine and the flavor was sweet, sour and wine tasting. The mouthfeel was bubbly and tingly and this was a light bodied beer with no lacing.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 17, 2003
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 63. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Melbourne Florida and served by Jack Owen the brewmaster. This brew poured a large head of mostly diminishing fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated very weak uring yellow colored bidy and no lace. The aroma was of apple cider and the mouthfeel was tingly and bitter. It had a weak thin cider flavor.

I think only the second Irish cider I’ve had. This is substantially more sweet than Magners/Bulmers Original, but still leaves a bit to be desired.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Crisp, yet not carbonated quite enough for my taste. As far as sweetness goes, sweeter than Woodpecker/Magner’s, but not as sweet as Woodchuck Amber (but nothing is). Middle-of-the-pack and could be considered a bit watery and thin.
