2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Previously Tasted, Home, New 330mL Bottle, Lager Glass, 7% ABV, Chilled, 16/05/12. #39.)
Appearance (2/5): Pours a perfectly clear, sparkling, extremely pale amber (like a pale white wine), with absolutely no head.
Aroma (4/10): Dominant green apple, tainted by a mild chemical note, with lemon and a little wine. Very simple.
Taste (5/10): A very sweet cider. Sweet, fresh apple juice (spoiled with that ugly chemical note) and a winey aftertaste when the alcohol kicks in (which by all means is still modest). Short and clean finish.
Palate (2/5): Very light body, lively carbonation, watery and slightly syrupy texture (like fruit juice) with a slightly sticky finish.
Overall (12/20): Not really a cider, more of a showcase for the fruit itself. Not much character, and that chemical/medicine note in the apples is disappointing, but very refreshing when served chilled on a hot day. Despite its boring and unrefined character, I could honestly drink it all day. Dangerously alcoholic, due to its great drinkability and 7% ABV.
Drinkability: 5/5. Character: 1/5. Buy Again: Probably Yes.
341ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin, fizzy, white head that fully dissipates. Sweet aroma of apples. Sweet flavour of green apples and sugar with a mildly tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Disappointing, lacks complexity. bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Rating #869 - December 29, 2013 - 341ml bottle. Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Artificially sweet. solidfunk (9191) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2013
I used,to drink a lot of this cheap stuff in Vancouver.,Now its here. Better than the 1927 but only a little. Free sample at Lcbo. cards04 (2827) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a light golden colour. Not a lot here to brag about. Tart apple aromas and flavours...kind of boring...and the tartness is muted is kind of mild. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
Clear pour with the aroma of sweet apples. Candy like apple taste with a slight sting of bitterness.

Like a finger head but leaves in like 5 seconds veary carbinaded & golden. Smell is rubber,letax,chemical smell w/granny smith apple smell. Taste is sugary sweet granny smith apple. sites heavy and burns in the belly a bit the 7%. More like a granny smith soda/wite wine apple flaved more then anything cider. It’s refreshing and nice but niot great. whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
clear 330ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours very pale yellow. No head. Weak aroma of sweet apples. Almost artificial in flavour. Think green Jolly Rancher. some bubblegum, Taste is extremely sweet no bitterness light-medium sourness. fizzy carbonation that later dies off. It’s a good cider if you know what you’re getting into--a sweet light (yet fairly heavy in alcohol) cider. Almost wine spritzer like--but far superior. beerlfry (32) - - OCT 17, 2011
