Awful, sickly sweet, an artificial candy apple flavor. I think this cider is aimed at freshman girls who are switching from soda pop to their first alcoholic beverage. It literally made me ill to drink this swill.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2014
11.2 ounce bottle as "Strongbow Gold Apple." Pours a VERY pale yellow color. Weak aroma of earthy, pithy apples. Taste is sickly sweet apples, earth, minty notes. Thin bodied, watery. Dreck.

Second of 2 ciders from the Publix mix and match selection. Brighter apple nose than the Stella Cidre. Overall brighter in terms of a clarity of the apple notes, clean apple notes, crisp and drinkable if not very interesting. Basically the kind of cider you drink for drinking. Bright golden color.

This smells like a green Jolly Rancher and is about as sweet. I dunno. I suppose it makes for a delicious glass of soda pop but I don’t really want anything to do w/ it. The sweetness makes this cider feel so heavy that even a single twelve ounce bottle is hard to swill down. It is rare that I give a score this low to something w/ no noticeable off-flavors but this is really just that bad.

Beerhunter111 (5386) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Getränk mit geringer Schaumkrone und viel Co2. Geruch süß nach Äpfeln, weinartig. Geschmack süß nach Apfelsaft, leicht säuerlich.

degbert (1001) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with almost no visible carbonation. Nose is faint apple, soap, and earthy notes. Decent enough on the tongue, with a balanced flavor; not overly sweet. Short, mild finish. Forgettable.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
3/11/14. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. Golden pour with basically no head. Sweet aroma, like lightly sugary apple juice, a touch of yeast, a hint of some tannic apple skin aspect. Sweet flavor, again like candied apple juice, a touch of tannic apple skin to give a hint of bitterness. Not bad.

Same here, had this one a long time ago. Sweet and bit of dry Apples. With a little bit of earth notes.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle at Murphy’s Law, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is big acid apple leading to a strong sweet flavour with a smooth apple palate. It’s a cider. It’s apple... It’s sweet ...but at least it’s not battery acid!
