The aroma has some apple, but not in a sweet or heavy way. Nice looking pour that takes a bit of head and then it slowly dissipates just leaving a little around the edges and a little haze on top. This is a nice alternative for those who are looking for a refresher. Not really like beer but not quite like a malterenative either. A nice change.

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

Gethinbeer (2074) - 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 (993) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, 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 (885) - 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.

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.

473ml can. Poured clear straw yellow with a good sized white head. Tangy green apple and sweet apple pie aroma. Taste is sour apple up front then all sweet apple. Very sugary. Body is sweet sticky in the mouth. Overall, this is candy. At least it was natural tasting apart from all the sugar, so points for that.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
473ml can. 4.0%ABV pours mostly clear yellow with a frothy white head that dissipates fairly quick. weakly carbonated. Aroma of green apple jolly rancher that just fills the room. Despite the jolly rancher flavour which one might expect from a wine cooler, the backbone is composed of grainy straw like malts and no noticeable hops. A cross between a wine cooler, beer and a cider. Positives? it’s refreshing and anyone who doesn’t regularly like beer may enjoy this. On the other hand, i’d much prefer a regular beer or a cider....

sulawang (545) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
pours golden mildly cloudy yellow-slightly-orange with a with nice massive creamy head, not much lacing, thin retention, lots of streams. Muddled apple juice on the nose. Drinks yeasty 6/10-sweet up front, airy, roughness on the tongue, apple juice, light tang, rough dry finish. Low-med complexity, low depth, no good carry, okay transitions, not that good drinkability.

Tastes like green apple candy. Refreshing for summer, but thin beer (not robust). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
