3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Saw this beer as a Super Bowl ad and was surprised to see it in the store the next day. The beer in my bottle looks nothing like the beer on display here: Mine is a bright golden color. The smell is of cider. It tastes like perhaps an apple shandy, that is, it tastes like cider and beer mixed together. It was not unpleasent, but I enjoy beer with more body (and hops).

Australian version from CUB (4%).330ml bottle into shaker. Aroma of stale malt, cardboard and tin. Crystal clear amber beer with two finger white head, steady stream of fine bubbles. Tastes like weak fruit juice that has been filtered through white bread crusts. Weird! I find it hard to believe that there was a demand somewhere for this. Quick! More focus groups!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from a friend. Pours a clear golden colour with a very thin white head. Aroma of apple, white sugar, slight white bread and subtle cardboard. Taste of apple juice, white sugar and subtle bready malt. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, apple juice finish. Not a beer, more like a cider, and not a very good one at that. Like cheap French cider.

Clear glass bottle. Clear golden color. Aroma is sweet apple juice. Taste is red apple juice. Sweet with a slight chemical cleaner taste that is a bit off putting.

Clear, pale golden-yellow colored, almost no head. Aroma of some apple juice, sugary. Taste is medium- sweet apple juice, sugar and stale pale lager... Watery.

I wouldn’t call this an Ale. This more like a cider. On a hot day for thurst.

Strange, in that I expected this to be a bit more ale like, but it’s more like a mass produced cider. I guess that’s what they were going for. Aroma was apples, flavor was apple juice.

Pours a medium straw with a white head. Light carbonation. Very sweet apple flavor. Not tart like a cider. Nothing great.

Looks, smells, and tastes like apple juice but with carbonation. Not horrible but not something I would buy again. Glad I got just one bottle from the sampler shelves.
