Had this in a bottle because my wife was interested. Honestly it was pretty bad in my opinion. The smell was a mix of apples and typical macrobrew smell and taste was surprisingly pure apples. I honestly didn't enjoy this as the alcohol/sugar combo made my head hurt and it wasn't an overall pleasant experience. Not bad if you want a beer that doesn't have anything resembling a beer, but it is an exceptionally flat taste with a lot of carbonation. I would honestly prefer a nice cider over this and I am not even a big fan of ciders. Probably a nice introduction to beer for those who are adverse to beer tastes, but otherwise it does not have much to offer.

A: Golden amber in color with nary a bit of head on top.

S: Smells like apple juice with a touch of booze in there. Almost slightly acidic, basically it smells like sweet sour.

T: Sugar, and apple juice. This is sparkling alcoholic apple juice. Very sweet. Like apple diabetes in a glass.

M: Thin, with moderate carbonation.

O: Overall, this is apple alcohol candy. I could see it appealing to 10th graders.

Pours an apple juice color with no head. Smells like apples. Taste has a sweet apple taste too it. Mouthfeel is hoppy and watery. Lacked the crispness of a hard cider. Overall, I feel this beer is okay. But, I would for an actual hard cider if I'm in the mood for apples.
