12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear light golden color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, some residual sugary character, a light tart bite, not much different than many ciders, slightly more carbonation than I expected.

This is a pretty awful cider. It tastes like apple cider mixed with tap water. Cider fans can do better.

12 oz. bottle at Boswell’s. Pours a totally clear light gold with minimal head that doesn’t last. Aroma of clean, sweet and tart apple, some sugars. Not much to it. The flavor is the same. Light and dry. Some artificial sweetener type of character. Sneaky sharp carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp. Meh.

Bottle at family cookout, no chance to glass pour. Brown-golden color with minimal fizzy head is shaken. Aroma of apple sweetness and faint hint of caramel. Taste seems even more sweet than aroma, maybe slight grainy note to is. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with quick sweet finish. Pretty light crisp cider, not much to analyze and think about with this one.

"Does taste more like apple cider than beer, but i have no idea of the process here. Bubbly feel. No alcohol showing, but it’s a pretty generic apple sweetness and not much else. I like apple, so it’s not horrid, but like I said, more like a wine cooler than a beer, or even a cider. Meh."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-15-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is a golden color with a big pure white head that forms upon pouring. The head fades super fast leaving almost no lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is very hard cider like with a strong apple juice smell mixed with just a hint of a caramel sweetness as well as a tiny amount of a bready smell.
Taste- The taste begins very sweet and of a big apple juice like flavor. There are notes of a caramel sweetness upfront as well which last till the end of the taste. While quite sweet upfront, the sweetness does fade slightly more toward the end, but still remains rather sweet leaving a very hard cider flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is very crisp and light with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the hard apple cider flavor of the brew and make it rather crisp and refreshing.
Overall – I am not sure what part of this is actually an ale. This tastes exactly like a sweet hard cider to me. Not bad, but more sweet cider like then beer like that is for sure.

This really was just not my thing. Tastes pretty much like a bad watered down hard cider.
