Super fizzy to start, but that dies down. Not bad, not good either. A couple reviews mentioned Jolly Rancher, and that’s accurate for the flavor. A bit artificial. Still, good to have a light option.

I am somewhat forgiving of malt liquors that taste like Jolly Ranchers because, hey, at least they get you drunk. This garbage is just worthless though. It smells like a zero calorie apple candy mixed w/ soda water and has an odd touch of watermelon rind. I very strongly advise against drinking this--unless you need the tick then it’s totally cool.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. bottle at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten in St. Louis. Pours a light piss yellow with a white head. Has a huge artificial sweetener character, and I found out they use Stevia. Makes sense. There’s just not much apple character here. Just that fake sugar shit. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. Not much there.

Bottle at the Biergarten. Pours a clear very pale yellow with a light grain hue and no head whatsoever. Aroma has a green candied apple note that is sweet and dominates. Flavor has ton of sweet apple with a touch of green apple tartness.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle shared by frank at StL brewery. Pour is very clear barely yellow with no head. Aroma is a yet green apple and sugar. Taste is horribly sweet and dry at the same time with green apples. Horrid.

Clear 355ml twist off bottle at the inbev st. Louis facility. Literally a step darker than water. Smell is apple jello. Flavor is artificially sweet? Faint Apple. Just miserable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared by Bob. Aroma is green Jolly Rancher and dry yeast. Pours super thin and bubbly with a soda pop fizzy head. Taste is watered down green Jolly Rancher with light soda taste and a sour apple finish. Very sweet tasting without a sweet mouthfeel. Met my expectations.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bottle.
A- Apples, sweet.
A- Light body, clear liquid, no head.
T- Green apples, sweet, slightly sour.
P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet tart finish.
O- A good cider. Champagne like. A little tart but easy to drink and very refreshing just when lounging around. I wouldn’t buy this, but when offered one I wouldn’t turn it down.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Rated on 6-13-2012. This cider has a very small fizzy white head, transparent body and fizzy carbonation. The aroma is green apples and sweet. The flavor is artificial green apples, sweet and dry. The mouthfeel is bubbly and this cider is light-medium bodied. This is not a good tasting cider and I do not recommend trying it.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Rotbox offering, courtesy of Steve_0. Thanks bra! Pours a very light yellow appearance with some fizz but no lasting head. Spritzy soda, green apple, vanilla cake aroma. Moderately tart. Tastes like the inside of those apple caramel suckers. Sweet green apples. A touch refreshing with a pulpy like element but really not even on par with Woodchuck.
