Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. It’s such a light pale yellow it almost looks clear. Head disappeared almost immediately. Tiny white lace. Nose is like apples rolled in powdered sugar. Taste is big tart apples, followed by flat smack of yeast. About 10 seconds after that theres a little pungent salivator. The first taste makes my eyes twinge like eating sour candy. Funny long lingering aftertaste.

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Almost clear, slight salmon hue, with fine bubbles / Sweet, candied citrus nose / Light body, gentle acidity and carbonation, with good, dry finish / Flavors of granny smith apples and apple candy / While lacking the fermented punch of the best, this one is stylish, and clean and very enjoyable.

rabba9 (115) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle pours clear and near water-like with no head. Aroma is of granny smith apples yet unpleasant. Taste initially sweet and apples with a tart finish. Light in body and carbonation. Not that great the finish ruins it.

drowland (6164) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Almost clear pour with a tart green apple aroma and a similar flavor with a bigger touch of sweetness and yeast. Meh.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s in Short Pump, VA. Pours a very pale yellow... almost colorless. Crystal clear with lots of carbonation. Not much of an effort at a head. Aroma is tart, grainy apples. Taste is sweet apples with a tart finish. Thin bodied. Glad I cracked this first because I’m extremely thirsty, but that’s about as much good as it does.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Green, short 12oz twist-off bottle. Sake colored, clear, like the color of the "meat" of a freshly sliced apple. Very watered down. Flavorless, except for some light granny tartness. 22 nov 08

Bottle from Trader Joes - Short Pump on 04/16/2009. Clear very pale golden body with a small fizzy off-white head that rapidly diminishes. Sweet but slightly tart apple aroma. Dry apple flavor with a touch of tart. Medium light body with high carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, still, achromatic body. Smell: There’s nothing quite like the tart-scented, Jolly Rancher-esque green apple aroma of mass-produced cider. Taste: Tart, sugary sweet taste of concentrated green apples that develops a bit more tartness as you reach the drying finish. Nominal sulfite character. Simple and okay for one of these things. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Exceedingly low carbonation. Drinkability: A small step below the Authentic Draft Cider. La Face Cachée de la Pomme Frimas, where are you when I need you?!
