Beautiful, champagne-like pour results in a clear, crisp, golden glass of fizzy cider. Martinelli’s nose. Soda-like sweetness and almost-artificial appleyness dabbles with notes of Jolly Rancher. A touch of dryness, most likely from the carbonation, saves the experience from being too pop-ish.. still, the simplicity and sugary profile does not make this something I would care to revisit. There are just too many good ciders available to me. I would rather have a can of Crispin.. Still, there’s nothing inherently off here. Tough one to criticize, just not what I want when I want cider.
Draft - Apple peel and some sweetness. Clear gold. Fleshy Apple, not green, and just OK. Bit of bitterness in the finish. Gerbeer (3750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours a light clear straw color with no head and lots of big bubble carbonation. Aromas of fresh cut apples. Flavors are same though light - not too sweet and not too dry. Pretty simple. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2015

Bottle. Clear tinted yellow. Aroma of crisp green apple, and softened/overripe apple skin. Taste is watered sweetness. Palate is crisp, clean, and a hint of tart bite right at the end.

On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Coal Harbour. Clear yellow pour with a few visible bubbles. Smells really heavy of fruit skins and maybe even wood. White pepper, apple and pear, and a bit of sugar. Slight tartness to the flavor. Drying pepper and fruit skins. Maybe some wood, lemon zest, and a bit of simple syrup. Eh. mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours a still clear green-tinted yellow. Aroma of mint-tinged apples, and some subtle white wine notes. The white wine is much more pronounced in the flavour, with white wine-soaked apples dominating. Very complex and deep. Great one. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Apple soft spice light sulfur and citrus hop pours pale golden thin head fades quickly. Flavors of juicy apple sulfur light spice touch of tart. Not unpleasant just kind of there. DuffMan (10427) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Big 1L swingtop clear bottle I purchased somewhere in Kelowna this spring, and shared with a group of friends out at the lake. Very pale straw yellow, medium carbonation. Aroma is crisp apple with a mild sulphite sting early after the pour that thankfully fades to become non apparent. Juicy crisp apple favour, medium sweetness, not much in the way of compexity or character (no real spice, yeast etc). Nothing stands out to warrent the ridiculous price I paid for this.
