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.

Draft sample. Poured clear bright golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet apple cider aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. My low expectations where met.

Pale yellow. All the sweet fake apple flavor you could ever imagine. Think apple juice, water and loads of sweet n low. Bleh

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours straw colored with minimal head. Nose is juicy apple. Tastes of earthy Red Delicious apple with some cinnamon and tartness. A one and done for me.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of musty, sweaty apples. The taste is sweet, grainy apples. Thin, watery. It’s nothing more than apple juice. And not good apple juice.

Can, “thanks” Mitch. Pours mostly clear gold thin white head. Smells like apple candy with a touch of grain. Very empty flavor wise. Light apple, very watery. Not much going on. Not offensive or bad, just really empty.

A nice amber colored brew with only the faintest whiff of a head. This smells like nice freshly cut apples like Granny Smith. There is also a little bit of flowers. I am tasting a lot of sweet apples and a little bit of flowers. Nice and bright, this is like a decent cider.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
(12oz bottle thanks to mora2000) clear gold, fine white bubbles. Nose is like an old leather shoe that someone left an apple slice in, with sawdust and plastic jugs that have rotted out. Some chicken boullion cubes too. Fuck this smells awful. Taste of apple sugar water, leather. Gross.
