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.

Pours gold with no head. Flavor I start apples and is very sweet and slightly syrupy. Medium bodied for a cider. Finishes sweet. I like it. I think it is underrated because it is AB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a clear gold, no head. Aroma is apples but way sweet. Flavor is just sweetness. I see someone below said this is just like sucking on a jolly rancher candy. That’s a spot on description. Only AB would take a drink that’s been around forever and ruin it by sweetening the hell outta it for the masses.

I absolutely love Johnny Appleseed. I actually got to try it before it came out in stores during a Budweiser tour. And I keep this stock in my home. It crisp, clean and taste great!

I don’t understand why people hate this so much. Its a little too sweet, but other than that it’s not bad.

I’d drink this if there was a choice of only this or water, but it would be a close tie. Tastes like a lightly carbonated Jolly Rancher "apple" candy.

12 oz. bottle at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten in St. Louis. Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head. Pretty clean apple throughout, and not as aggressively artificially flavored-seeming as the other fruited stuff we tried that day. Light-bodied, with a crisp, dry lingering Johnny Appleseed finish.

Bottle @ Greg’s dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Spritzy, Martinelli’s, apple pulp aroma. Pretty high sweetness. Very juicy. Apple sauce flavor. Too sweet. I’d take a Redds Apple Ale over this.

I drank lots of apple wine last night
And now my bowels, they don’t feel so right
355ml clear twistoff. Wet fart! Something don’t feel right
Wet fart! Soiled my pants tonight

Seriously not THAT bad for a cidre like this, total sweetness, and its still garbage but better than the michelod light ultra crap.

Bottle at StL brewery. Nose is a sugary green apple. Pour is amazingly clear with no head. Taste is sweet up front with apple and dries out quickly with some tartness. Meh.

Sweet. Tasted at Stanley’s Beer and Bacon Fest - May 17th, 2014 during Art-A-Whirl in Northeast. Notes were a bit light.
