2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pale clear pour. Like a less sweet redds apple ale, its pretty uninspired.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours almost clear light yellow, gold tint, with a small white cap, little retention and lacing. apple-flavored artificial candies - jolly rancher*TM, fragrant pears, some natural notes - sweetened brown unfiltered natural juice; pale honeyed maltiness, lots of cinnamon, allpsice and potpourri bouquet, citric traces provided by lemon juice, not very clean with other awkward esters. average carbonation, light body, semi-sweet, chalky and artificial finish. not horrid but nah.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can fro the LCBO. Clear pale yellow with a two finger white head that disappears quite quickly leaving some spotty lace. Green apple is prominent in the nose with some light grain. Nice tartness to start which is quickly passed by a cloying sweetness. Medium thin mouth with prickly carbonation. Ok, I’ve tried it; moving on.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Look I knew I wasn’t getting a stellar beer with the reviews, including one of the summer’s lowest rating from my esteemed friend Freaky below (even if it didn’t liken the beer to sweaty balls), but the pickings while visiting the NB brewery were pretty slim... so. After the pour it looks like, well, a fizzy apple juice- clear gold, with white head that fades faster than my parental patience during one of my daughters’ hissy-fits. Smells heavily of sweet apples with a mild malt behind. And the taste is crazy apples with plastic dump truck load of sugar. Oh and some mild malt supporting. This beer may explain the tour group of a dozen women doing a tasting at the NB brewery while I was there. Christ NB, I don’t even give my aforementioned daughters apple juice with added sugar, it sweet enough as-is. This beer is a sugary applet mess.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
473ml can from LCBO. Clear pale golden body, small white head with poor retention. Aroma of apple juice and grains, candies. Taste of diluted apple cider, hay, sugar. I had worse.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from the LCBO. Pours off-gold, like a pale lager. Some head: fizzy like cider. Aroma of apple juice. Tastes of sweet apples. Kind of nice to start with, that’s the only flavour: gets overwhelming quickly. Recommend taking about 8 sips, then dumping.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours into the glass like bad news, all yellow urine with no foam. Smells like green apple candy & tastes like a clinical study for artificial flavour. Could see this selling well at playgrounds & Chuck e Cheese restaurants across the province. If you like liquid sugar & hate the taste of the beer then you will love this. If not, you’ll be embarrassed that you bought it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tapped at the brewery. Light golden yellow color. White soapy head. Fantastic aroma of green apples. Taste is a typical North American lager flavor with green apples. Refreshing. Medium carbonation. Not a bad summer thirst killer.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Way too sweet. Must be extra cold otherwise its not drinkable. No carbonation at all, foam is pretty much non existent. Sweetness hits you and than acidity comes through at the end. Not good at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like...apples. Green ones, in fact. Tastes like green apples too, but there’s a richness to it that doesn’t allow it to be cloyingly sweet. It’s a green Jolly Rancher in a glass. One is enough though.
