2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle picked up at the state store
Pours clear golden with a small white ring, no lacing. Mild aroma of ripe apples. Tastes like apple sauce and cinnamon
Not bad but it tasted like old apples, not crisp fresh ones.

Can. Pours clear orange with little to no white head. Aroma is strong of apple, caramel. Has a dirty taste to it, but a lot of apple still going on, beer backbone. Overall, I think it’s pretty good, not nearly as bad as I expected, to be completely honest. Good.

Pours gold with a slight white head. Smell of apple skins and a little cooked apple. Med minus body. Flavor is fairly sweet . Nice apple flavors. Just a bit of tart skin hanging around. Quite drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top. Nose of apples, sure, but plastic and raw artificiality. Pours dark but clear golden with above-average carbonation and a fizzy, blink-and-you-miss-it head. Sweet, fizzy full body with a little booze warmth, surprisingly heavy, but thankfully free of the feared crushing artificiality and spotted here and there bit bits of pectin and brown sugar. Still too infantilized, but I’m probably game for another.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden color with a small white head. Aroma contains apple as you would imagine. Maybe a hint of candy caramel in there too. The flavor contains well apples. This one is a bit on the sweet side but it is definitely refreshing. Overall this is not bad for a random gas station pick up.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted on 1/22/14 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours light bronzed yellow with an average white head that quickly dissipates to a thin collar of lace. The nose is sweet with some caramelly nuttiness, some cheesy yeast, and alcoholic heat. The flavor is the same artificial tasting caramel apple, butterscotch, and sweet alcohol. The body is medium with fizzy carbonation and a short cheesy butterscotch finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, and don’t ask me why. Always great to see a laundry list of ingredients on the side of a label that are not apples and yeast. Pours with a perfectly clear deep golden yellow (food coloring?) hued body with a few large bubbles. Aromas are of jolly ranchers, candied apple, tons of sugar and artificial acid. Cloyingly sweet. Lightly spicy character. Flavors are equally sweet, artificial tangy acidity but yet not enough to even come close to balancing the sweetness. Next to no tannic structure. Medium full bodied, lively carbonation. I might be a bit harsh, as this is not nearly the worst cider I have, but this is still pretty much the definition of an alcopop, and it really bothers me that most of the "ciders" one finds on shelves are like this. Cloyingly sweet and mind numbingly dumbed down.
