Clear Gold, Whatever Small Head There Was it Evaporated In a matter of seconds, No Lacing Whatsoever. Highly Carbonated, Bubbles going crazy like a Sprite. Apple Cider or Champagne Aroma. Taste the same; Apple Cider or Champagne. Does Not Have anything that would remind me of a beer. In a blind test would have never guessed that this is beer. Might be OK for Girls of whoever likes ciders. First and Last for me. Pass It...

Dont really like anything about it. Not crazy about tasting "Beer" with "Apple". I would prefer to have a cider.

12 oz clear bottle: Well, since I can see right through the bottle. I assume that the beer is going to be a clear golden. Really carbonated pour, almost pours like a soda with the head dissipating almost immediately. Aroma is has definite apple in there sweet with a very distant caramel note that almost indiscernible. Taste is apple, sweet, dry on the back end. Thereís nothing really else to say about it. Itís like a not so good cider masquerading as a fruit beer. Cheers!

Bought the wife a six pack, decided to try it. Pours a light gold with carbonation bubbles, no head. Taste is sweet apples, adjunct aftetaste. No much here, watery mouthfeel, but its not awful.

Tastes crisp and not too dry. The smell is a little on the stale side and there is an occasional feeling like a want to spit but not because of the taste. Wish the bottle wasnít clear, not a killer though.

12 oz. clear bottle. MAR1714 freshness date. Apple cider color, with a thin white head. Aromas are of apples, with a funky background.
Thin body, thin mouthfeel. Tastes like a watered down apple cider with some vinegar in there.
Not the best Iíve ever had, that much is sure.

Not sure why a lot of people refer to this as a "beer" when clearly itís a cider. Miller Coors should have marketed it as such as using the word íAleí instead of íCiderí on the packaging leaves the potential buyer confused as to exactly what it is. A beer drinker would be turned off thinking itís a cider and a cider drinker would be turned off thinking itís a beer. If my local liquor store hadnít started stocking this in the cider cooler instead of with the cold beer, I wouldnít have bothered to try it myself.
The taste is within the norm of what you expect for a hard cider. Itís middle of the pack, not the best or the worst either. Not too sweet and not too dry. Aroma is of fermented apples, like you would expect from a cider. Leaves a faint lingering taste of sour apples in your mouth. Caramel color? Come on guys, you canít manage to get a rich, amber hue without resorting to artificial colorings?
Thereís much better choices out there for hard ciders like Woodchuck, Strongbow, Magners, Angry Orchard, but this one isnít one Iíd automatically turn my nose up at. I reserve that distinction for Harpoon.
