Look: Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Transparent gold. Lots of carbonation, no head at all. Looks just like carbonated apple juice.

Smell: Apples with hint of alcohol, lemons

Taste: very much like a sparkling wine, with apples. Very much what you'd expect from hard cider.

Feel: Carbonation is not as off-putting as I thought. Very light and drinkable. Refreshing

Overall: Very refreshing. Interesting take on beer, but not something I'd buy a whole six pack of.

At first when you pop open the bottle everything seems like a regular beer. Then the first sip happens, the carbonated bubbles cover your tongue like sparkling water.

It tastes just like a regular light beer then the hint of apple rolls over your tongue, it's not strong but it's there.

This beer almost confuses the senses, it smells like a beer but with a linger of apple reminding you of cider.

If you're new into drinking beer and love cider, I'd recommend you give this a go. Considering its not a very overpowering taste and has a bit of sweetness.

If you love your beer I'd suggest you try it just don't buy a whole case of it.

Wouldn't be too bad in the summer months.

From bottle, Light gold pour with a minimal white head. Taste and aroma of apple juice mixed with a touch of light beer. It's very clean and crisp very nice on a hot day.

this is definitely more like a cider than a beer, which is what i would expect (i was surprised it wasn't labeled as a cider). i like a cider sometimes to start off with but i can't drink them all night.

Obviously not a standard beer, but even as far as ciders go, this one is weak for me. If I'm going to have a cider, personally I like a strong apple flavor and a bit higher alcohol content 6-8%. This to me tasted like watered down apple juice. Maybe good for someone who doesn't like beer but wants something a bit lighter.
