$1.50 tick from New Beer. Green stubby bottle. Pint glass pour. Same guys that make Woodchuck. Oh crap.
Ingredients: ...less then one percent of: malic acid, NATURAL APPLE FLAVOR(huh?), sorbate and sulfites(yay! :) to preserve flavor. 5%ABV.
Faint, almost colorless, clear, generic cream soda color. Lasting, scummy white paste head.
Smells exactly like my last pour of Woodchuck, which is nothing more then Y?-grade apples, compost, sulfur & yeast.
Taste isn’t terrible. Just not appetizing & unbashfully artificial. Soft carbonation, confectioners sugar, severely watered-down apple sauce, old beer residue, dusty preservatives, & a little tin. Half sour, thin, flat Canada Dry finish.

Lame- sour, crappy. Watery and thing. High carbonation sting. This is better than a lot of ciders, but not by a much. Bottle at The Abbey, Miami Beach. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Bottle compliments of Sparky27...thanks Eric!!! 10 karat crystal clear pour with a razor thin whispy white head and no lacing. This one is all Granny Smith (which is what one would expect). An enjoyable beverage. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Pours a clear yellow with lots of carbonation. Aroma is tart apples and a little jolly rancher chemical. Flavor is ok, a touch sweet, but a nice tart finish. Decent cider. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear bright gold with a half finger white head. The nose is unripe apples. The taste is tart apple upfront that finishes sweet, but not overbearing. Light prickly mouthfeel. Good refreshing cider.

Bottle. Pours light gold with a fizz white head. Tart green apple aroma. The flavor has tart and dry apple sweetness with a dry and lightly acidic finish. Not bad. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Tasted 3/21/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a pale golden hue. Trace ring of tiny bubbles. Aromas of, well you guessed it...apples. Also a touch earthy and a slight perfumy quality. Medium bodied and, actually quite dry. Tart and tangy. Pleasant effervescence. Slight acidic zip in the finish. While I’m not the biggest fan of ciders, this was quite a surprise. Not too complex, but very drinkable. Moderate sweetness, but it doesn’t go over the top. If cider is your thing, this is worth trying. halfonit (1364) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Not bad if you like this fruity, cider style. It is smooth and tastes just like apple cider with hardly any alcohol presence in it. I personally like the raspberry flavor better. But after a couple of these I’m ready for a real beer. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is dry and tart apples and some light spice. Flavor is sweet and tart at the beginning with a good amount of apples. Not as dry as I thought, but also not as sweet as other American ciders. Not too shabby. Ron (3955) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2009
A decent cider and I’m not that big a fan on hard ciders. this one had a great taste of apple cider and went down smooth with a great kick at the end. pretty good
