3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in trade with noncaloric. Dark golen amber. Rich sugar apple and musty/yeast aroma. Tastes like the scent. Very apple cider-like. Big apple flavour. Sweet in a brown sugar quality. Would be hard to pick out from apple cider in a side by side. A bit of an edge to the taste musty or yeasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks Jason. Been wanting to try this forever. Nose is sweet candied apple, honey, fresh apple cider. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side from what I would have liked, but it still tastes very natural and is not cloying at all. Wish it was a bit more carbonated and dry. Good, but not the great beer I wanted it to be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by JCB. This is a great low-alcohol treat. Tastes and smells pretty much just like apple juice or apple cider. Smell a bit deeper, though, and there are some slight apple pie notes... the slightly caramelized brown sugar and flaky crust... they’re subtle, but I think they’re there. Fun beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Clear golden color, very little head. Crisp apple with some caramel, a malt presence made more apparent since crisp apples are usually associated on my palate with ciders. Mild apple notes on the taste, slight sharpness balanced by sweetness. Pretty tame, but well done.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle courtesy of OSLO. Clear, golden apple juice color with a small white head. Juicy, sweet and lightly tart apple aroma. The flavor follows with what could be non-alcoholic cider, but it perhaps just a bit less cloying. This was definitely not agreeing with me by the end. I wish it were dryer.

Bottle, courtesy Kevin. Pours a copper cider color,with fizzy white lacing. Aroma is pure apples, with brown sugar, red wine, some grapes. Flavor is again all apples (shockingly) with caramel, honey, brown sugar. Very nice. Smooth, medium-bodied, and incredibly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of OSLO. Clear pale golden body with a small white head. The nose is fresh pressed cider with just a touch of cotton candy and honey. Wow, that is really an incredible nose. The taste is moderately sweet and lightly tart. The flavor is a bit of a let down after the nose, with it being more like watered down cider. Medium/light body is a tad thin with a spritzy mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from woodman’s, kenosha.... a crystal clear light orange brown with a thin and quickly dissipating white head.... aroma of sweet assertive fresh apple scents that really smells quite nice and appealing....flavors were more apple juice in nature with moderate carbonation. pretty sweet overall and not too much complexity involved. really drinkable and i can see this appealing to the masses.
