I didn't notice a very strong aroma with this. It has a nice crystal clear golden appearance with nice big bubbles that drifted up. It has a very nice crisp clear cider flavor that doesn't seem to linger around too long. Its a nice cider but ware the headache that may follow if you drink too much. It's a kicker!

No aroma, pale yellow appearance, and no particular aftertaste, but in its defense, this cider does taste really very good. That's about all it has going for it, though. It's a good thing to drink on a light-drinking night.

I saw this tap while sitting at the 5 seasons in Atlanta and thought well what the heck. This may be a step above alot of standard American Ciders with a drier taste to it. But overall pretty standard issue stuff.

Free sample during a beer tasting on the Disney cruise line. Wasn't expecting a cider. Hazy, tangy, sour. I did not favor this much.

(can) My exceptionally attractive girflfriend gave me some of her cider, so I will rate it in hopes of getting head tonight. Aroma of spicy Motts. Just a plain cider, somewhat dry in the finish. Id prefer the woodchuck dark and dry if I was trying to get head by pretending to like cider.

On tap. My first cider. Not much aroma except apple juice. Not much taste except apple juice. Looked like apple juice. Could see how the alcohol could catch up to you drinking this stuff, dry and easy to drink. I just prefer malt and hops.

King of Ciders. Taste can be overpoweringly sweet with mass consumption. CAUTION- You will only realize how much you have consumed once you ATTEMPT to stand up. Best if found on tap- BY FAR. Can is close second, bottle is adequate.

not a bad cider, but not a particularly great one either, rather non-remarkable. Obvious gold color, dry, and the taste of apple is ever present. Presence of Alcohol is moot, as it's barely palpable.

Pale golden body. Sweet apple with very dry palate and finish. Enjoy this less than I used to.

Nose is slightly musty, but mostly sweet reminiscent of fresh pressed apples. Color was slightly darker than pale, perhaps similar to a light beer. Very slight head, sustained bubbles throughout different than its UK counterpart. Taste is indeed sweet and not dry experienced way back on your tongue. Aftertaste was well presented, a subtle bite reminding you that it is patterened after a traditional English cider. Overall, very respectable. Worth the effort to seek out. Thanks and Cheers to mutant for making this available to me.
