It smelled like apple cider, and I was ready for it to be a little horrible. But I was pleasantly surprised....
Brand: Apple Beer.
Origin: Salt Lake City, UT.
Purchase Place: Frattallone's Ace Hardware, Burnsville, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: This really surprised me. It was quite tasty. It (obviously and rightfully so) had a strong apple taste, but it wasn't tart like cider. It had the gentle smoothness and sweetness of soda, but the flavor of apple. It tasted very "natural" with not a ton of carbonation. This would be a great summertime out-on-the-back-stoop-watching-the-sun-set soda.
Score: 9 out of 10.
Bonus: here's the history of their can from their website:
