Appearance of carbonated apple juice, with the head dissipating quickly. Strong aroma of strong apple juice, almost cider. Taste is very sweet, slightly sour with very light hop bitterness. Very different, it’s not quite cider, but not something you’d expect from a pilsner either . Some people consider craft beer “over hopped” and too strong for their taste, but that’s not the case with this one. Definitely not the greatest beer technically, but it can be enjoyed by anyone.

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.

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.

Reminds me (& others it seems) of a Green Jolly Rancher! Sweet-- I could really only have 1.

Ferris (7533) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Draft - Sweet green apple. Pale yellow and a rich white head. Green apple and some light acidity. Not as sweet as it smells but still a little too fruity and juice like.

Can: straw pour, medium soapy head. Aroma is green apple, pilsner malt. Biscuity. Flavour is earthy musty, biscuity malt and tangy sweet green apple. Not as tart as expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours golden with a medium bubbly white head. Definitely a sweet apples aroma and taste, not much else to be said.

Gethinbeer (2284) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Sweet , spiced apple aroma. Rich apple flavor with s spicy finish. Something is a little odd on the palette. Almost pop like but pleasant.

Smell is amazing green apple smell like a jolly ranger from can & granny smith apple from glass. Pour looked really good 2 finger head right at top of glass and then typical golden lager/pilsner look with some carbination. Taste the sip’s start of really good granny smith taste w/some apple juice(in a good way)then the sip turn’s into a hoped pilsner taste and then go’s into a combo of both taste b4 next sip. The green apple part is so good but the pilsner part not as good and the combo of both taste not 100% good. Over all I like it but the green apple part is way way way better then the pilsner part. Cheer’s.

Bendrixian (1322) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Clear light beige/yellow colour, well carbonated brew. Huge apple and fruit rot aroma, sort of synthetic molasses note. similar flavours, very weird beer and not in a good way.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2013
473ml can. Pours a lightly hazy fresh urine colour with almost no lasting head...at all. There’s a very thin ring of lace after 4 seconds in the glass. Smells like those green and white sour apple candies and nothing else. The very definition of one dimensional. Jesus Christ this is bad. It’s almost syrupy, sweet, has a wet grain taste that quickly turns to synthetic apple.
