Horrible, horrible, attempt at a making a cider. This tastes like sugar water with a little bit of apple flavoring. With the Seagrams brand, they might sell a few of these, but not for too long, there’s much better ciders available.

pours clear extra pale yellow without a head, nice bubbles. sweet red apples, few pears, relatively clean yeastiness - some dust, hint of metal and smoke. average carbonation, light body, lightly astringent-woodsy, sweetish and clean finish. ok.

Fizzy and waaay too sweet. Not my cup of cider. Passable, but not what I’m looking for.

blankboy (6197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Can [473ml]. Pours a clear pale yellow-gold with an average size diminishing fizzy white head. Some green hues to it depending how you look. Surprisingly decent and clean aroma of sweet apples and apple juice. Flavour follows with sweet apples, slightly tart apples and apple juice. Not overly sweet. Good carbonation. Average bodied. Like I said, surprisingly pretty good.

Metalchopz (2364) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
Wow... this is a cider that seems like real apple juice. Not too sweet like most, not too dry. Can’t even feel the alcohol. Just like fresh pressed red apples. Taste is a little lighter than the nice scent. No apple candy adjunct here. Just a nice natural cider.

Boutip (4827) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
Can: Poured a clear yellow color cider with strong carbonation. Aroma consists of medium sweet apple with not much else in terms of characteristics. Taste is dominated by some mildly sweet apple juice with a bland finish and some very limited complexity. Not bad but no great flaw either.

[4938-20121115] 473mL can. Mouldy peas and applesauce aroma. Clear, bright yellow body with a quick bubbly head. Sweetened apples and fruit skins flavour. Medium body. Fair, quite sweet. (6/2/6/3/13) 3.0

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
2012-11-15. Crisp bubbly pale yellow body is headless after the initial white froth subsides. Aroma of apples, apple cores, mild apple juice, very muted musty dusty touches around it. Flavour is similar, sweet apple juice, notes of apple cores and dried apples, apple seeds in the finish. Something familiar that I can not quite place. Average to light bodied palate. Just okay, but surprisingly quaffable while chilled, Can from LCBO, Toronto

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
Can from the LCBO. Clear bright yellow-gold with a slight greenish tinge. Aroma of slightly fermented apples, quite natural and inviting. Crisp body with a nice level of carbonation. Flavour is really enjoyable, tasting of fresh Macintosh and Empire apples, not too sweet & not too tart. It may not have the complex character of an artisanal craft cider, but it also lacks the cloying chemical-tasting notes found in many of the large scale commercial ciders. A really pleasant and welcome surprise.
