Mediocre cider. It tasted like typical store-bought apple juice with a little bit of added sugar and a hint of alcohol. It wasnít as dry as the majority of ciders Iíve had, and didnít really taste like it was made with great apples. It was just sort of meh, appley enough without being appletastic.

Pours a clear golden color that looks exactly like apple juice. It smells like sugary apple juice, it tastes like sweet sugary apple juice. Nothing special or offensive about this. Itís a sugar bomb and youíll like it if youíre into that sort of cider.

330mL thanks to womencantsail. Sparkling clear golden with high carbonation. No head. Nose is sugary, heavy sweet cinnamon apple. Taste is tart, not too sweet. A tad plastic. Palate is mostly papery. A bit mealy and chalky but inoffensive.

ChinoSkillzian (152) - The Hills, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with no head. Aromas of apple skins, slight chemical, and syrup. Palate is thin, with flavors of apple juice and some tannic apple skin, not much else. OK.

Bottle from Total Wine for RBSH3, shared with the SoCal bros. Clear golden pour with no head. Apple, chlorine, sugar, mild tartness, and water. Pretty innocuous. The flavor is really watery. Some apple, sugar, tart lemon, and a hint of chlorine. Meh.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Rich amber colored body. The nose is nice dry vinous cider with notes of leather and earthy funk. This is rich apple and leather. There is a note of caramel on the back end. Overall, it is relatively sweet, like a Macintosh type apple. Decent and better than many macro ciders.

scooterbub (813) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a gold yellow with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of apples. Similar aroma. Has a nice body to it. Has a nice crispness and tartness to it. Very easy to drink and quite refreshing. A very good offering.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2013
bottle. deep golden with minimal head. lightly sweet cider with mild dry finish. pretty decent flavor, but iíd have to say the original version is better. like the original, the flavor isnít overly complex, but pretty solid for what it is.

jmagnus87 (2333) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light gold with no head. Aroma is mostly sour green apples. Taste is light sour. Green apples and slightly dry. This is more like apple juice than a hard cider. Light bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing special

Bottle. Fresh sweet tart apple aroma. Clear medium gold. Sweet tart ripe apple flavor. LIght body, lively carbonation. Have to say this one surprised me. I was expecting typical macro cider swill, but this was a bit better.
