Green bottle from Trader Joes. Nice, tart Granny Smith skin aroma. Pale pear juice color (but clear) with no bubbles at all. Medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation (but no bubbles). Itís tart, itís pretty Granny Smith in flavor, but Iíd say Woodchuck is more to the fruit. That aside, it finishes tart, dry and greenskin (with hints of sweetness). It is very good.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Bottle from TJís Cincinnati. Poured light pale color with a small white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Light aroma of apple. Light body with a thin texture. Flavor of tart apple with a light sweet finish. My expectations were met.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joeís 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 Iím extremely thirsty, but thatís about as much good as it does.

drowland (6038) - 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.

PorterPounder (5547) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joeís 12 oz bottle. Pours and almost clear light golden, quick bubbly head on the pour that quickly dissipates. Aroma has some very faint sour Granny Smith notes. Flavor is very mellow with some light Granny Smith sourness, a touch of club soda - not exactly loaded down with flavor. Mouthfeel is slightly artificial and dry. Passable.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Pours a pale near transparent hint of peach body. Grain and apple tones, lingering salt and dry gritty sweetness. Waxy with a hint of fruit. Poor.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2008
From the Trader Joeís in Orland Park, IL - Hardly any color to this. It looks much like melted yellow snow except for the narrow ring of fizz around the top. Itís got an aroma of apple skins and tin. Very carbonated and gassy. The flavor presents more apple than the aroma, but not much. More of the skins and metal. The finish is sugar coated tin. They did this on purpose?

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Sampled at Cellarís Wine & Spirits Wednesday evening beer tasting and shared by JK. From a 12-oz bottle pours a clear with just a barely straw colored cider with no bubbles or any ring. Taste is slightly tart apple and apple skin with a touch of sugar. Taste is slightly tart apple, medium bodied with no spices or any additional flavors. Finish has a mild tart aftertaste that quickly disappears. Pretty much an average tart apple cider.
