2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light pinkish gold pour with a thin white head, that actually has decent retention for a cider. Aroma is Green Apple Laffy Taffy, malic acid, and a light overripe apple note that lingers a bit. Flavor is muted overripe, slightly ground rotten apple and a little odd plantiness up front, leading to a sharp Green Apple Jolly Rancher/Laffy Taffy tartness in the middle and increasing malic acid tartness toward the finish, along with a little more booziness than it should have. Light body, syrupy, sticky feel moderate carbonation. OK overall, a few off notes definitely bring it down, though.

on draft poured a pale yellowish color aroma of apple and then nothing much else. rather light on the nose. the flavor was pretty much the same light and semi sweet with apple. actually mixed a a shot of fireball with it gave it some character. but the overall cider part is what it is...

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light golden color, apple juice aroma, acidic candy apple taste with slight funky fermented flavor and some jolly rancher-esque apple flavor at the end. There are better ciders out there.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear pale golden with no head. Strong generic apple juice aroma. Flavor is the same but with a semi dry champagne like yeast finish with a honey crisp apple tone throughout. Overly sweet.

I bought two cans of this at a 7-11 a while back and only drank one because it was not good. Everything about it is too thin and light to merit the name ’cider’. The taste is cloyingly sweet, like alcoholic pop, and much too thin. I question whether apples actually go into this disgusting alcohol delivery system.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the clear 12 fl. oz. bottle. It looks nice with its pale yellow very clear pour. I am learning my way on ciders but for this one I pick up a kind of musty apple aroma. The body is light and seems to be about right for a cider. No complaints there. The taste has a tart apple flavor but it is also kind of syrupy and bland. After I have tried more ciders maybe I will come back a year from now and have a different opinion but this one doesn’t do much for me.

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.
