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.

What have i done!!. Saw this at a local mom and pop place and thought "hmm its muggy and this is a new cider" I had no idea it was Miller ( says TN on the tin). anyway $1.99 16 ozer. Lighter copper coloured cider..better looking than many other..small bubbly lace. Aroma is of sweet apple hard candy but thankfully dialed back a bit so it is not so artificially sickeningly sweet as others in the class. Unfortunatlly the sweetness is NOT dialed down in the taste the first sip is very tooth rotting sweet..luckily doesnt last long and it finishes almost semi dry. Palate is not bad for style. OK for a mass produced alco-opop cider.

This is an extra sweet and extra artificial tasting soda-pop style cider. It tastes like you mixed apple juice concentrate about 1:1 with carbonated water w/ a hint of alcohol to round it off. It is sticky and sluggish w/o nearly enough carbonation to cut this sweet garbage. While I can kind of see the appeal of an alcoholic beverage that tastes like carbonated apple juice, this doesnít even reach that level. It is pretty much disgusting across the board.

patrick767 (3566) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2014
can - Pours up with minimal head and has very low carbonation. It smells like ripe apples. The flavor is very sweet. Basically it tastes like sweetened apple juice. This is the second hard cider Iíve had lately that tastes like something you could put in a sippy cup and give to a toddler. The kid would like it (do not do this). Not that itís terrible. Sweet apple juice isnít bad, but I want more in a hard cider.

NeoHippie2 (971) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Straight from the can. Stale apple aroma with some strange funk going on. Flavor is overly sweet apple juice. Doesnít even really taste like cider so much as an apple flavored alcopop. Weak.

sneezey (129) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Smells of plastic flip flops and bad pork products. At least it has a reasonably brownish yellow color, although potential the only bright spot is additives. Tastes like dry socks soaked in bad vodka and jalapenos. At least itís a bit spicy with some alcohol to numb you into how bad this is. Equivalent to skunked beer.

Sledutah (4392) - Utah, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12oz can picked up at the state store
Pours clear dark golden with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is sweet, golden apples. Flavor is sweet, sugar and apples
If this wasnít so sweet it would be pretty good. Strong, clean apples but the sweetness is too much.

edgallow (1989) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is apples. Better then most, just not something I go to.

ClutchMasterson (40) - 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.
