Pounder cans picked up at the COOP a week or so ago... Getting around to "enjoying" one tonight. Pours a clear dark golden. Nose is like sweet apple juice with no real cider notes.. soooo sweet with no balance.. Flavor tastes the same but with a Baby Aspirin mixed in for the morning headache... Too sweet... Sorority girls should get custom made Koozies. Glad I tried it and am just as happy it is in the rear view mirror. Apple juice concentrate, literally nothing else... Junk drunk juice. I see no real redeeming qualities other than it goes down easy... "Insert Sorority girl joke here".

This hard cider really sucks because only 2 of the lousy things made me overheat and get a headache as though I took an overdose of hydrochloric acid such as Heroin, thorazine, and/or fluphenazine.

As far as a cider beer goes this is the least sweet tasting of them all. However, coming in at 220 calories with 23 grams of sugar this is a beer I’ll never buy more than one of.

Pours into a pewter mug medium amber in color with no head. Aroma of apple cider sensations. The body is light to medium but it also has a smooth creaminess of sorts to it. The taste has a biting apple cider sharpness but nothing that would make me think booze. I am fairly new to ciders so I am not sure how to rate them. But as far as ciders go - it was not bad.

From a can at Coors brewery. Light apple juice flavor. Sweet with lots of sugar. No complexity and one dimensional. Flavor is ok however.

This cider has a strong aroma I apples and flavor to match. Clearly alcoholic from the flavor and lacking carbonation. Ok for a cider ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at JL Beers in Fargo. Clear deep golden pour with no head. Mild apple nose with a fairly rich sweet apple taste with some cinnamon. Tasty enough.

Nice refreshing taste aroma keeps you coming back for more. Sweetness of an apple without feeling like you are eating a desert

This bar had nothing I haven’t had. Was stuck with this. Apple juice with a bit of carbonation. That is about as good as it gets. Chrisp but not well carbed. Meh. If you like apple juice and are under 10 yrs old, you’ll love this treat.

Canned. Poured clear, light amber with a light dusting of white head. The aroma picked up fairly meaty apples paired with an odd, almost vegetal/minty character.. something very much didn’t work. The flavor opened tart, but not really in an apple kind of way.. some meaty apple and caramel sweetness followed.. the same odd notes from the nose showed up again.. finished tacky with conflicting sweet and sour notes. Lighter-bodied with prickly carbonation.. decent feel at best.. not very good.
