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.

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.

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.

OOKPIKABLE (193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
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.

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.

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.

Raistlin (185) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
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 (7970) - 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.

Trev (2012) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2014
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
