PorterPounder (5355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Monticello, Fl - JPís Shell Station - 16 oz can. Pours a dark golden, quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has some artificial apple accents - not unpleasant - just not natural. Flavor is the same way, some "apple" flavor, not sour, more sweet, No real tartness. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

Pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is apples. Better then most, just not something I go to.

ClutchMasterson (31) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Poured in to lager glass. Apple juice amber color. Smell is somewhat apples and musty alcohol. Smells like an apple juice version of a Colt 45. Taste is definitely more apples with some light alcohol taste. Not all that good but not so terrible that it makes you gag. Definitely masks the 6% ABV well. I wouldnít get this again however.

Bottle. Sweet apple and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow. Sweet apple juice and light alcohol flavor. Decent - as good or better as a lot of English mass-produced ciders.

355ml can. Pretty insipid stuff. Sweet apples, metallic and off aftertaste. Avoid this.

Awful, way too sweet and lacking the sharpness that makes Cider Cider. Will not even think about buying this again.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Think high test sweeter cider rather than completely dry. Hard cutting alky experience. Hides 6% well, my gillie taste buds rather like it. Decent brew, just curious if the sugar will make my tummy ache.

Jesterdeal (1801) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Can at the barbeque for Jon. Aroma of sweet apples and German sweet white wine. Pours golden with medium carb but no head. Taste is tart apple and a sweet reisling. Weird tart apple and sour yeast blend. Overall, too sweet.

Alright, I guess Iím gonna do this. I poured this into a pilsner glass. The appearance was super light yellow color with streams of carbonation screaming towards the surface. There was no head and lacing. The smell, well it was basically just apple cider to me with some booze thrown in. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, it sat extremely light and sessionable. The carbonation was there in a dry like fashion catering no need to mercy on my tongue. Overall, itís harsh and dry, is nothing to look at. Yeah, gimme a real beer or perhaps wake me up when hard ciders are no longer being reviewed on a beer website. Whatís next? Is wine going to be reviewed here, God I sure as fuck hope not.

maxwelldeux (3487) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Can. Pours an almost perfectly clear light amber color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Nose is a little sweet to me, with some light sweet apple elements and what seems like a bit of sugar in there as well. Taste is moderately sweet, with some crisp apple elements to it. Not bad, but a bit on the sweet side for me.

Can: (purchased at a Circle K single bin) Clear, dark gold with a thin,grey-white head. Apple-peel, sugar aroma. Taste is caramel apple....very sweet...almost candied. Better than expected.
