Pours a root beer color with near zero head.......aroma of apple tart cookie......taste is burnt apple, smooth finish, not quite crisp but not overly sweet either. Moravius (1516) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2017
Flasche (355 ml) von Panda Brew, Peking. - Tiefes Kupferrotbraun, klar. - Mild süße, schwach fruchtige Nase: riecht wie die süßen roten Neuzüchtungen aus dem Supermarkt. - Schmeckt recht süß apfelig mit etwas Rohrzucker, sehr schwacher Säure und sehr milder Herbe, arg limonadenartig. Zarte Zimtnote. - Nicht unangenehm aber eher Apfelsaft als -wein. Fatehunter (2641) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Dark red colored body. Aroma is apple and molasses. Taste starts with sweet apple, then apple vinegar and cinnamon. Texture is crisp. luttonm (6972) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown-molasses, but clear. Small ring. Quite sweet aroma. Musty grape apple juice. Sweet, round. not great. Klickitat (1) - Winlock, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2016 does not count
So close to being average. First thing that hit me was the taste of a tin can. Seriously, it was if someone opened a can of pie filling, used the tin lid to scraped out the contents and added yeast. Comes on with a cloyingly red delicious apple flavor that turns to a rather nice burnt caramel taste and then again back to the bitter red delicious skin. Very little acid and definitely not bright as some suggest.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Flute at 42°. Color is a deep amber with carbonation and a thin fizzy head. Aroma is faint with just a hint of apple coming through. Body is light with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is apple cider with a hint of caramel and a dry finish that gives it a wine like feel. Overall it’s tasty, but not quite as easy and refreshing as there ciders. Zeswaft (1786) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Starts off sweet and tart. Some sweaty sock funk and caramel in the middle. Finishes surprisingly dry. Not bad. cmacklin (1376) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear dark amber with a small, frothy, short lived, beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of apples, molasses and brown sugar. Sweet flavour of apples, caramel, brown sugar, molasses and cinnamon with a slightly tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. A nice, dark cider. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Last beer of the sampling. Is it really English? I have no idea. It reminds me of a standard Apple Cider. 5.0% alcohol.
