2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light golden amber with a transient white head. Smells a bit like red apple skin. Med minus body. Flavor starts towards tart, but ends up like mucky apple pulp. Not bad, but not my thing.

Yellow gold color with no head. Bright fresh apple cider aroma. The apple flavor in this is pretty good. Not artificial or chemical. Not much beer taste. It really tastes like cider. It gets really sweet on the tongue after a while. I donít think Iíd get it often.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 If you are looking for a cider go strongbows dry cider its what we drink in the u.k and mix a guiness draught with it . Best beer around ! Redds is not a as crisp as strongbows or angry orchard dry but still good and dont compare this to beer its not anything alike this is a good switch between beers so u dont get that dry mouth bloated beer feel or taste.

This really seems more like a light cider, than an ale. It has a flavor of a tart red apple with a twist - almost a hint of cherry. Light body. Crisp.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with small paperthin head tha diminishes to nothing. The aroma is apples and spice. Thin mouthfeel with light apple flavor and weird aftertaste more of a pale lager than cider.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very little carbonation for an ale. Taste is very similar to a cider but lacks the syrupy nature of most ciders. First impression was not great but as the beer went on it started to grow on me. Not a bad choice for a lighter bodied cider/ale.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 fl oz / 355 mL bottle into pint glass.
Aroma: Sour apples. Thatís it.
Appearance: Light golden amber. Kind of like apple juice. Head is fizzy and gone instantly.
Taste: Dry, apples. Not really a crisp, green apple flavor like Angry Orchard, but a dry, kind of stale apple juice flavor. Itís not bad, itís just nothing special.
Palate: Fizzy fizzy fizzy and watery.
Overall: I dontí see what the appeal of an apple-y beer is. I know people who buy ciders because they have wheat allergies, so they canít drink this. Itís interesting. Itís really a lot like stale, fizzy Mottís apple juice. The best description I can give of this, is: Apple soda that feels like miller high life in your mouth and will give you a decent buzz after a few.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apple juice in color-like it should be in a sippie cup. Nose has large apple notes, spiced cider notes, and tart skin. Flavor is sweet sugary apples, spice, sweet finish. Just a slight touch of apple skin tartness in the finish. Moderate high carbonation. Not horrible not amazing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold pour with a fizzy white head. Very mild carbonation. Light apple cider aroma with a very light grassy undertone. Flavor isnít quite a light pils and isnít quite apple cider but has just those light hints of both of them. Better than I thought it would be and very refreshing.
