16 oz can. (Discount Tobacco & Beer) Chattanooga, TN.
Clear golden colourwith a small white head.
Apple, sweetness, cinnamon (?) and some sugar in the aroma.
The flavour is apples, mild tartness, strong sweetness and some spices. Quite drinkable apple cider.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
So I was planning on writing a treatise here on how hard it is to rate ciders sometimes. It seems to be a forgiving style - even the bad ones are still OK to drink, but its also a tough style, because its hard to break through from something that is just OK to drink to "holy cow this is amazing". But then I got bored and figured that this cider isn’t worth the effort. Its basically very sweet fizzy apple soda with alcohol.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint can. Poured clear, bright golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up sweet apple juice and a touch of lemon zest.. came across a lot like candy. The flavor found similar.. sour green apple Jolly Ranchers throughout, with a bunch of added sugar.. tart candy finish. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. OK feel, but it was hard for me to finish the pint.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Too sweet for its own good. Not very well balanced. It's refreshing and tell get the job done, but there are much better choices out there. Look at the ingredients, the first one is hard cider, then there are 6 more. They should have stopped at one.

This tastes like a sour apple lollipop. It feels so sugary in the mouth that you will want to brush your teeth after. Without a doubt the worst cider I have ever tasted. Only suitable use for this is for someone who REALLY hates the taste of alcohol and needs something super sweet to get it down.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear, twist-off 12oz bottle. Clear, light yellow color. Smells of apple candy. Tastes of sugar with apple juice & fizz. Sweet, candy finish. Made for the kids/masses. Not worth drinking, unless you’re looking for the headache. (4171)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Brady’s. Clear pale gold pour with no head. Harmless enough - very sweet apple juice all over this. Not a great cider, but drinkable on a hot day. That is all.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz via bottle at Cactus Jacks. Pale gold and clear appearance. Aroma and flavor of apple cider and jolly rancher candies. Fairly sweet with a crisp feel and a semi-dry finish. Decent cider.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear pale yellow pour a little fizzy. Strong apple nose. Thin palate. Apply flavor but in a fake additive sort of way. Too sweet for me.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 What’s this, a new cider? Fairly rank aroma - Jolly Rancher candies, scented cleaners, and a little yeasty bitterness. It tastes like apple soda punch, not cider. It might not even be a real cider - it is made from apple juice concentrate, sugars, and flavoring agents (probably artificial). And now I see that it is made by Anheuser Busch - that explains a few things! Pretty awful - my plan is to never touch this stuff again.
