2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinking from a bottle, I won’t bother pouring. The aroma is candyish, not unpleasant, but not really anything like an ale. Looks good due to artificial coloring, a sort of light copper. The taste of this product is not nearly as Kool Aidish as the aroma; the apple flavoring is not subtle but nowhere near as overwhelming as the scent would make you think. As for the "ale" part of the name, I can’t say I detect anything approaching ale in the flavor. It does finish pleasantly clean. It is also worth nothing that the palate is quite thin for an "ale". Overall, it’s tasty and inoffensive but not worth the price tag. An authentic hard cider could be had for the same price as opposed to this artificial concoction.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This tastes exactly like what I thought it would, apple juice. Apple juice with a slight alcohol kick. I enjoyed it for what it is.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Australian version - 4% ABV. BB 23 May 16. Poured a crystal clear amber with a few white bubbles for a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation extremely low and coarse. Aroma sweet with maybe a hint of malt. Taste like sweet apple juice - not an ale, not even a beer. Light watery body. Smooth and bland; not even as tasty as apple juice.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Australian version, brewed by CUB. Orange with a detergent-like white head. Aroma of cardboard, cooked apple puree. Wow, the head feels like soap bubbles. Very sweet, more rubbish cider than beer. The finish really needs a little more bitterness or acid just to stop the flabby puree from droning on. Fairly nasty.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, golden pour with no head. It smells like apple juice and has the same flat texture as well. The taste is sweet, again like apple juice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I had it from the can. The aroma is apple. The taste is apple cider with the slightest hint of corn malt. This really drinks like a cider. There’s not much carbonation at all. It’s still pretty refreshing on a hot day. I’d rather drink a good cider though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint can. Light gold pour with a minimal white head. Taste and aroma of apple juice mixed with a touch of light beer. Inoffensive but not anything much to talked about, Enough apple juice to make it a bit better than the average macro swill.
