unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Green, short 12oz twist-off bottle. Sake colored, clear, like the color of the "meat" of a freshly sliced apple. Very watered down. Flavorless, except for some light granny tartness. 22 nov 08

phukktifano (159) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2009
Very pale yellow with an aroma of sweet apple. Flavor was apple with a slight sourness.

Bottle from Trader Joes - Short Pump on 04/16/2009. Clear very pale golden body with a small fizzy off-white head that rapidly diminishes. Sweet but slightly tart apple aroma. Dry apple flavor with a touch of tart. Medium light body with high carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, still, achromatic body. Smell: There’s nothing quite like the tart-scented, Jolly Rancher-esque green apple aroma of mass-produced cider. Taste: Tart, sugary sweet taste of concentrated green apples that develops a bit more tartness as you reach the drying finish. Nominal sulfite character. Simple and okay for one of these things. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Exceedingly low carbonation. Drinkability: A small step below the Authentic Draft Cider. La Face Cachée de la Pomme Frimas, where are you when I need you?!

Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle. Lighter clear color, some green apple, both worse and better than the regular Newton Folly--better bite and distinctly Granny Smith, but also a bit more crass and artificial. Still, while no match for proper English cider, this is perfectly drinkable as hard cider.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Clear straw, very pale, lethargic carbonation. graphite and green apple nose, little plastic-y. Sweet, mostly clean finish, there’s apple flavor, but not much character. Very crisp.

Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Very clear almost perfectly clear with just a touch of gold to differentiate from water pour with some carbonation. Apple flavor undertones with a bit of acidic bite. Very refreshing.

dalekliz (922) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white ring. Sparkly, tart apple aroma, with a hint of yeast. Taste is tart and sweet apples. Lingering tartness. Nice carbonation and very refreshing.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a nearly clear color with low carbonation. Tastes of tart apple juice. Sour finish and light mouthfeel. Rather bland. This is not a very good cider.
