2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Strange, not quite a cider, not quite a pale lager though it retains elements of both (the ale moniker notwithstanding). Is it good as a cider? No, it has the apple juice qualities of many macro ciders. Is it good as a pale lager? No. But in this case the whole is truly more than the sum of its parts. The apple flavors make it a little more flavorful than most pale lagers, and the beer parts make it less sweet and cloying than many macro ciders. On the whole, drinkable.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a touch of light caramel color and zero head. The nose is light apple skins with some light sugary sweetness. The flavor is rather sweet with lots of apple juice and not a whole lot else going on. There’s no beer flavor or even a whole lot of alcohol noticeable in this. Rather sticky and clingy on the mouthfeel with fizzy prickly carbonation. This is pretty bad. Obviously catering to the malternative crowd here.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Relatively light sweetness compared to what I expected, with crisp-ish apples and a relatively clean finish. Really not that bad.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sample from the Redd’s promo girls at Sweet Lime’s. I just want to say that this is a cider. I feel like I need to get that information out there because the commercials and the marketing are very misleading by insinuating this is a beer. This is a cider, folks. A very sweet, as in straight apple juice and add sugar, cider.

Bottle - this is NOT an ale and I have a wicked headache after one bottle. This is a shite attempt by miller. This is a cider with an aroma of farts. I'm done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Saw this beer as a Super Bowl ad and was surprised to see it in the store the next day. The beer in my bottle looks nothing like the beer on display here: Mine is a bright golden color. The smell is of cider. It tastes like perhaps an apple shandy, that is, it tastes like cider and beer mixed together. It was not unpleasent, but I enjoy beer with more body (and hops).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours an ultra clear yellow-orange color with no head. If this is an ale and not a cider, why is there no head?. Aroma is apple cider, sweet tarts and light caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and very tart. Tastes is close to apple cider but there seems to be something that makes it taste a bit artificial. There is a bit of caramel that comes through which is nice. Finish is very dry and tart. Overall, not terrible but I won’t go back to this. I don’t drink ciders often and I’ve had many better than this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz clear bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a small soapy white head that faded instantly and left a touch of lacing. The aroma was sour and tangy apple juice. The flavor was sour and tangy apple juice with a bit of cinnamon and yeast. Medium length sour and tart apple finish. Medium body. Decent.
