Pours liquid gold with a very bubbly head. The smell is that of Apples, lots of apples. The taste is also that of Apples, drinks very similar to a fizzy apple cider, or pear cider. The apple flavor is ok, but I generally find it to taste artificial. The carbonation is reminiscent to that of champagne, but the overall thickness is too much, and it simply doesn't drink like an ale.

I happen to be a great fan of hard cider, that being said I understand this is an ale somehow. Other than the difference in the name I felt it came off like a hard cider. Nice and crisp, good apple flavor without too much sweetness. Apple flavored beer done damn well.

From a tallboy purchased at a gas station (was not going to risk a 12 pack of these) into a cold mug with ice. Color of apple juice with huge fizzy head that rapidly fades to nothing. Nose of sweet apple juice, but not overly sweet. Taste-wise, it’s basically carbonated apple juice. Not way-over-the-top-super-cloying cider, but just a nice alcoholic apple juice. Like maybe apple juice, a good vodka, and seltzer. This is by no means terrible but not anything to write home about either. I’m glad I just bought one.
