Simply outstanding. I am not a drinker by any means, so when my friend bought be a glass on tap I was a bit surprised. It was Apple Pie in a Glass! The only thing missing was a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream!!!!! This is my new favorite beverage!!!!!

Reminds me quite a bit of a delicious spiced apple cider. Lovely fall / winter drink that is crisp and warm at the same time.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this cider poured a slightly hazy yellow gold color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was cinnamon sugar and tart apples. The flavor was tangy and tart apple, strong cinnamon sugar and nutmeg. Long finish. Medium body. Well done.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with no head. Pleasant aroma of apples with a bit of fruit sweetness along with cinnamon and ginger. The flavor is apples, on the sweeter side, with cinnamon and ginger. There is some mild heat from the ginger at the finish, which I liked. Very easy to drink.

Bottle courtesy of weihenweizen. Musty ripe sweet tart apple and mulling spices (cinnamon-allspice-clove-orange peel-ginger). Hazy straw gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet-tart ripe apple and mulling spices, maybe a little clove heavy. Medium body, lively carbonation. Pretty good stuff.
