Its better than Woodchuck but not by a lot. I would rather have almost any real beer instead.

really like this. too many of the ciders have a heavier feel and taste to them. this is light and crisp and very drinkable. my wife, who hates beer even likes this Ale.

"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."

I really like it as a change of pace. Really tastes nothing like beer at all

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.

Bottle. Got it is a random draw special. All this is is watered down crappy cider. The only people that seem to like this crap are drunk party chicks at the bar at 1:00 a.m.

Clear pale straw with a fizzy cola-like head, no retention. Ciderish, red and yellow apple aroma with sugar. Caramel flavoring and sugar covered red apples fill the palate, with a candied apple flavor on the finish. Pretty generic and mainstream-oriented.

Taste like Apple Juice. Goes down easy but mostly because it tastes super sweet. Smells much if apples. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from meighbor Bob - thanks! Must be one of the best in its breed. Crisp and nicely sweet. Just perfect for a cider ale.
