Taster at Armenetti’s. Not very cidery, at least. Nose and taste are sweet, with apple and malt both noticeable. Adequate, but there’s a touch of flavored lip balm to it as well. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2013

Sample at Liquor Store. udfan07 (159) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Tastes like coors light with apple juice.
Light malt aroma with apple juice.
Flavour is like already described.
Meh. Inoffensive, but fairly bland.
It’s ok, aroma is like apples but it reminded me of church wine. Sam Adams Angry Orchard is much better style. pkbites (1001) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Wayyyyyy overpriced @ $7.99 for a six pack of glass bottles. Looks like morning breakfast apple juice. Darker yellow with no head whatsoever. Zero. Smells like extremely bland apple juice. A very slight sweetness of sweet/tart apples starts off on the palate, but then shades of nothingness. This isn’t horrible tasting or anything like that. It’s just extremely bland. A very watery finish. I really want to emphasize the watery finish. There is only a *slight* hint of cinnamon, but seeing I don’t really like cinnamon I can’t fairly count that in my rating. There are zillions of hard ciders out there. Most good, some mediocre, a few bad. But either way they are real cider. This is just very dull flavored beer for the same price. Leinenkugels had an apple flavored brew (Apple Spice was it’s name) that was much better than this. I rated it a 4 out of 5. So a decent apple flavored beer can be done. But seeing real hard cider is available, why bother with apple flavored beer? How fucking ridiculous!!!!!

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from AMP 150 at the Cleveland Airport Marriott. Very clear, pee-golden pour with zero head. Aroma is actually pretty nice - suprise surprise, its apple. Taste is kind of artificial apple though. Thin palate. Tmoney99 (15039) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Draft sample. Poured clear bright golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet apple cider aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. My low expectations where met.

16oz can - vigorous pour provides gold with super quickly diminishing white head and no lacing. Nose is sour apple (and grape... Cut cut). Flavor is more like concentrated apple juice with a smack of aspartame. Sweet and tart. More like a cider than a fruit beer. Easy to drink and chugable, but not recommended. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
2 surprises as I’m rating this ’ale’. It’s actually a beer and it’s made by Miller. When I tried this, I was pleasantly surprised. It tasted pretty good. Especially compared to the other ciders out there. I’d order this over woodchuck or woodpecker but not over a ’real’ beer. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Honey gold. Lightly carbonated. Candy apple aroma. Taste isn’t as bad as I was expecting. Tastes like a hard cider but a bit less acidic and more candy sweetness. This is decent for what it is.
