3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Smiths 4% version I guess....Pours a clear golden color with a tiny bubble of head. A sweet apple nose. Unoffensive, solid ciderish flavor, some big sweetness, apple pie crust. Decent. Pretty smooth and has a decent big flavor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This pours pretty pale for something with "Caramel Color" added. The rise and fall of the head is quick.
The aroma is sulphur and apple soda... fairly tart smelling.
The flavor is thin, itís not as sweet of an apple-soda bomb as I had expected it to be. Still itís sweet, and itís got some red apple flavor... itís mildly bitter... I donít know, I guess I was hoping it would be some offensive alco-pop beer I could say a bunch of terrible things about, but itís just pretty boring.

bottle. golden with small head. Pretty tasty sweet apple flavor, but seems completely fake, and definitely not really a beer. Still it goes down easy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Smiths
Pours clear light golden, no head or lacing. Aroma of plastic apples and sugar. Flavors is sweet, sugary and fresh apples. Not bad, but sweet. Like eating a slice of granny apple but somebody put a big pile of sugar on it.

Taster at Armenettiís. Not very cidery, at least. Nose and taste are sweet, with apple and malt both noticeable. Adequate, but thereís a touch of flavored lip balm to it as well.

Itís ok, aroma is like apples but it reminded me of church wine. Sam Adams Angry Orchard is much better style.

Bottle. Wayyyyyy overpriced @ $7.99 for a six pack of glass bottles. Looks like morning breakfast apple juice. Darker yellow with no head whatsoever. Zero. Smells like extremely bland apple juice. A very slight sweetness of sweet/tart apples starts off on the palate, but then shades of nothingness. This isnít horrible tasting or anything like that. Itís just extremely bland. A very watery finish. I really want to emphasize the watery finish. There is only a *slight* hint of cinnamon, but seeing I donít really like cinnamon I canít fairly count that in my rating. There are zillions of hard ciders out there. Most good, some mediocre, a few bad. But either way they are real cider. This is just very dull flavored beer for the same price. Leinenkugels had an apple flavored brew (Apple Spice was itís name) that was much better than this. I rated it a 4 out of 5. So a decent apple flavored beer can be done. But seeing real hard cider is available, why bother with apple flavored beer? How fucking ridiculous!!!!!
