Can. Really easy drinking cider. Nice sour green apple aroma and a slightly tart apple flavor. I’d buy it again.

Pours extremely clear golden, nearly absent of color. Nose involves tart apple skin and yeast, some light pie crust. Fairly sweet, quite tart. Light and crisp, softer action, with a long super tart and dusty yeasty finish. Refreshing and deceptively strong.

Tap @ Green Well - pours clear straw, very light carbonation. Aroma is tart green apples, undercurrents of funk. Taste is semi-sweet with a tart bite, finishes dry with a touch of syrup. Very drinkable!!

Draught at the HopCat, Grand Rapids, MI.
Clear yellowish golden colour with no head. Dry tart apple and mild chemical in the aroma. Very fresh apples, mild tartness and mild chemical notes in a tasty flavour. Highly drinkable.

Tart with flavors of whiskey, ginger, sulfur and of course apples. A balanced sweetness and tartness, but not all that great of a cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big can. Pours a clear yellow color with a small bubbly head. Very lively. A sweet dry yeasty apple nose. The flavor is rich tannins, some tart apple, very dry, light woody dryness. Very nice.

16oz can, thanks to mikem409. Labeled 6.9%. Clear pale, whitish golden color. Nearly colorless. No head or lace. Medium-plus body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. A very light stickiness to the body, I don’t mind it. The more full body is pretty nice. Nice moderate sweet taste, light spice. Good balance to the taste, not too sweet at all, lightly dry. Nice crisp red apple flavor, kind of juicy; apple peel. Tasty cider.

bigtaster (523) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Pours a very clear with slight yellow tint lots of bubbling carbonation. Apple and grapes in the nose some floral notes. Sweet start reminiscent of apple juice then get taken over by the carbonation and finishes with a nice tartness that makes it very clean.

16 oz can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks mikem409). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with no head or lacing, but good carbonation. Smells and tastes of apple cider with some slight apple cider vinegar too. Nice and dry on the palate, but the mild vinegar keeps it average (at best). Not my fave.
