This sort of splits the different between a dry, champagne-like cider and the apple flavored soda pop kind. It’s not bad at all. It is an ever so slightly green tinged yellow color. Its nose is mild and slightly floral and it has a nice, crisp acidic bite on the tongue. There is a touch of sweetness and I wish there was a little more carbonation to cut this but other than that, I can’t really complain.
Sampled from a 16oz can this cider poured a pale yellow color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was dryish and musty with egg white and a hint of coder vinegar. The flavor was very dry with phenol and a bit of apple. Medium length finish. Medium body. Not good.

Can shared. Clear very light straw with no head but quite some bubbles. Lots of sweet apple juice with a nice amount of tartness, some apple skins dry white wine and mineral notes, but mostly just apple. Light bodied and medium dry. Nice alcoholic apple juice. charule (2277) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2016

16 ounce can I came back with from GTMW. Poured into an Oktoberfest liter dimpled mug, because why not? VERY clear and just a little yellow tint. No foam. This smells like apple juice with very soft malts. The semi sweet deScription is accurate. I am not a fan of ciders and this is a reason for not wanting to become one.

16 oz. can from Binny’s. Packaging on this seems too mainstream "Smith Forge-ish" for a craft cider. Let’s see: Pours nice and fizzy, with no head after pouring, just a light yellow color with agreeable fizz. Smell has some nice apple juice character and alcohol note, but I also think there’s an edge of sulfides. Still, it has a straight-ahead apple cider taste, a little sweet, followed by a tart apple edge, and no chemical processing notes like so many megabrewed ciders.

can - Pours pale gold with a tart apple aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet, definitely on the dry side as hard ciders go. It’s a pleasant drink that’s refreshing and finishes dry. Awktoberfest (404) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2014
It's fine and refreshing........................................

16oz pour at The Piggery in Chicago. Totally clear, pale gold with zero head. Nose is fairly standard, apples, some mild lemon, lightly earthy. Flavor is the same, crisp, mild honey, a little pear, but mostly apples. Lightly slick, lightly spritzy finish. Solid.
