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.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wondferful natural apple aroma, but after that it kinda falls flat. Too light, too thin, doesn’t taste as good as the nose would have you beleive. Oh well. Not like I expected much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to half-pint. Looks decent; a fairly transparent apple juice with thin white head that quickly dissipates entirely. Smells like apple juice. Tastes like it smells, but lively due to carbonation. It exceeded my expectations.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, it seems to be that time of the year to try this kind of stuff.
Into a pint glass, the appearance has a clear golden orange to amber color with a fast rising carbonation seen throughout. There isn’t any head and there isn’t any lacing.
The smell had alcohol and apple, more so like green apple.
The taste was slightly tart from the green apple that lead to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly sharp carbonation that lead to a drying effect.
Overall, well, it’s a cider, what else were you looking for?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 ounce can. Gold pour. Not much head. Aroma is apple. Flavor is apple with a little alcohol. Light body and medium carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall this tastes a little cheap, but it is close to being good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
$1 can from the discount bin @ Kroger. Golden pour from the 16 ounce can with a flash of white head. Smell is tart sweet apples with a hint of vinegar or old skins. Taste shows lots of sweet apples, barely tart, a hint of vinegar is present, touch of older light beer. Not bad.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
