PorterPounder (6730) - 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.

Beaver (1550) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2016
12 oz can. Pours clear copper gold with a couple bubble for a head that quickly disappear. The aroma is sweet apples. The flavor is very sweet sugary apples. Tastes like apple juice with a little cider. Donít notice the alcohol. The mouthfeel is thin and watery. Overall, overly sweet hard apple juice.

Interesting lack of sweetness, but also a lack of dryness. Smooth body, heavy carbonation.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Can shared with my wife. Pours a fairly clear orange tinged amber with a thin white head. Soft sweetness on the nose, a touch of apple. Medium bodied, sweet and with a nice amount of apple and caramel. Sweet and simple, caramel and apple. A touch too sweet into the finish, a bit of an off flavor comes through. Decent enough.

ClarkVV (4856) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Can, drunk 12/4/15.
Had a small glass of a friendís can. Clear, golden liquid is highly carbonated.
Sweet applesauce, bits of cinnamon and black pepper. A touch vegetal, but not overly offensive in the nose (nor is overly pleasant). A touch of glue-like alcohol.
Very sweet, and probably would be syrupy were it not for the heavy, fizzy carbonation. Simple apple juice flavors, mostly macintosh and/or red delicious-like. Some light pepper and a touch of alcohol with low but not non-existent acidity. Itís bad, but there is a good deal of worse stuff being made out there.

deyholla (9336) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Can shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of very sweet apple with a bit of sugar. Flavor is similar with an apple juice like note that is very sweet.

mcberko (11215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
12 oz. can, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is cloyingly sweet and artificial, with fake apples and lots of cloying sweetness. Pretty standard commercial pseudo-cider. Crap.

Ferris (9825) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015

auerbrau (3199) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2015
12oz Can. Cooked apple juice and acrid acid aroma. Pure sugar poison. Concentrated old apple juice flavor, speckled with gross booze and weak carbonation. Drain pour.
