I'm sitting with someone who is drinking one, so I figured I'd take a sip and do a little review.

This isn't worth pouring into a glass, just drink it from the bottle. The nose is that of apple cider, that's it. Apples apples apples. The taste is the same, apples. That's about it. Sickening sweet. There is no way I could finish a whole bottle, I'm sick of it after three sips.

Bottom line, if you like cider, maybe you'll find it decent enough, but really......just no.

Tastes a lot like woodchuck apple cider! Great for 18 year old girls! Too sweet for me!

look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The beer is the color of cider with a white head. Big chunks of sediment are swirling around, settling to the bottom. A few watery spots of lacing stay on the glass.

Aroma: Syrupy honey crisp apples, apple tart, cider, a slight hint of malts.

Taste: Definitely all apples, everywhere. Syrupy sweet and tart apple, some cinnamon. The finish has some barley or grains reminding me that this is in fact a beer.

Mouthfeel: Very thick and syrupy.

Overall: They got the apple tartness down, but it's brewed with cider and spices, and it tastes like it. Tastes a bit too much like those packages of instant cider that you add hot water to.
