I live in AZ so this is the perfect summer pool beer. The apple fruit flavor makes this very easy to drink and enjoyable. For what it is intended to be, it is great.

If you like artificial apple flavoring, this is your brew. Got this six pack for free as part of a special, but will definitely not be picking it up again.

From a pint can into a pint glass. Hazy honey color with visible sediment. Very thin head which fades quickly. Very thin cap and collar. Nose of honey and Apple as expected. Artificial flavor on nose. Mouth similar to taste, artificial and a bit too sweet. Mouthfeel is OK bubbly somewhat viscous. Overall drinkable but overly sweet.

Some things go great together, like peanut butter and jelly or peanut butter and chocolate. This is more like peanut butter and jelly Reese's cups, but the machine forgot the peanut butter.
To be honest the cider part was good but the beer messed it up and dragged it through the mud. I wouldn't recommend drinking this unless you enjoy disappointments.

Orange-gold, unfiltered body with no head.

Smells of those green apple Dumb-Dumbs that tellers in the drive through window of banks hand out. If you don't know what those taste like, then imagine a very sugary Granny Smith apple aroma.

Taste: grainy; sweet; green apples.

Mouthfeel: watery.

Finish: dry, crisp, refreshing.

Not quite as bad as I expected it to be (I expected horrible, I got merely bad). Still couldn't bring myself to finish it. The cloying smell was the worst part.
