On tap at The Drafting Room, lulling fruited moderation utilizes locally pressed apples, but fails to truly intrigue. Sweet cider stead too ineffective against murky hop astringency and flailing lemon-peeled bittering. Vinous green grape tartness never fully integrates with sweet ‘n sour red apple signature.
Dessicated sour cider acidity contrasts sugary browned apple tartness fairly well but cinnamon spicing falls way short. Apple Jacks cereal, baked apple and apple strudel undertones squeezed out by apparent artificial flavoring.
OK. So MillerCoors makes this lowly-regarded malt beverage (suspectly given space at the liquor store in the beer section). They ain’t beer ’cause the grain base don’t exist and it tastes more like apple juice. However, as a light refreshment its red apple ripeness, sweet cider kick and sugary caramel backside have a spritzy splendor sweet-toothed softies and Jolly Rancher fans will enjoy.
