On tap. Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin, fizzy, white head that fully dissipates. Sweet, mild aroma of apple juice. Sweet flavour of red apples with a dry, tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation.

Ferris (15273) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015
Draft - Sweet green apple. Clear gold with no head. Sweet apple and a sweet dry finish. Pretty sweet but nice and dry in the finish.

Draught at Big Rock, Vancouver, on June 18, 2015
Clear pale golden color, no head really. Apple, tart taste. Apple aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, tart finish. Apple, sort of tart scent.

Not the worst thing ever. Crisp and dry with a light spice blend. Sweet and syrupy. A fairly good cider overall. Wish it was a more complex.

mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
On tap at Railway Club, pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. This is basically long Strongbow -- cheap sweetened artificial apples on the nose and palate. Not overly offensive, just cheap and weak. Not good.

355ml can. Boozy apple juice; dry, bubbly, light and tart. I’ve never been a cider man and this did nothing to change my mind.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Big Rock in Seoul. Pours a gold but is quite sour. meh. Actually, I was served this by accident when I’d ordered the Scottish Wee Heavy...

lotsalaughs (175) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
citrus, cooked vegetables, alcohol, orange, red, sparkling, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness, light body, thin feel, fizzy Nice pour with a sparkling orange/red colour. Definite sour apple aromas and some alcohol dryness on the nose. Mild bitterness with some sweet and more pronounced sourness. Enjoyed the fizzy carbonation on the tongue and the lightly sour, dry finish.

HogTownHarry (6834) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
June 17, 2011 - draught at The Queen & Beaver. Clear and extremely bubbly deep gold, no head. Smells like ... apple (duh), well more like cheap apple juice, a little sweet. Taste is better - apple juice with seltzer - refreshing, weak alcohol (6-). Stingingly carbonated, light bodied, sweet - not too sweet, but a fairly weak example of the style.

3.2
WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - AUG 21, 2012
Someone said they believe this was brewed stronger and watered down... it certainly does seem that way. I’m no expert on ciders, though.

Quite a quencher for a "dry" cider... I love the look of this, with its high carbonation. The spices really round out the apples. Not bad at all.
