Looks like apple juice. Smell is of apple juice, no real beery connotations to it.

Drinks, a little alcohol spice, dry, cinnamon. But beer? No. Just doesn't have any malt or hop quotient to it. Isn't sour. Just like drinking an apple juice boilermaker or something. Carbonation makes it more like apple champagne boilermaker.

Part of one of the all time worst beer flights I've ever done.

Appearance of apple juice, these dudes were doing the juice beer thing long before Turdium or Treehose. Smells like apple juice, but not like there are beer components to smell.

Tastes like holiday spice rack, cinammon, nutmeg. Unfortunately, nothing like hops, malt come out. Really hot alcohol presence for its abv.

Some questionable stuff right here.

Pale straw in color, topped off by a small, semi-fuzzy white head which leaves tiny droppings of lace. Smells like, well, what do you think? Apples, of course. To be less vauge, a light smell of tart, green apples in the smell. Decent so far.

The apple flavor is more intense in the mouth that the aromas that lead to the nose. That's a good thing, because the barley and hops aren't coming out to play. It's apple dominate, green tart apples again, a little less intense than than cider. Light club soda aspect gives it a little bubbly.

I'm amazed that this is beer. It doesn't taste like beer at all! It's not bad, but if you're more focused on taste instead of alcohol, go for Martinelli's instead.
