  • Way too rich

    this drink instantly coagulates your veins.
  • Needs adjusting

    Too sweet and '"appley" for my liking but not bad. I much preferred making the recipe with actual beer(blonde lager or Sam Adams pumpkin spice beer). Hold the whip cream (;
  • Tasty

    It's good, but it's has WAY too much apple flavor.
  • Too sweet!

    star33

    This sounds good but for me, it would be way too sweet. I'd rather just have some spiced cider without any added sugar.
  • Needs more butterscotch

    Here is a review from someone that actually TRIED this recipe.

    In order for this to be more like tradional Butterbeer, like as served at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or other Potter attractions around the world, you need to double the "butterscotch" portion of this recipe or the cider completely overwhelms any other taste. Still tasty, but very overwhelmingly apple.
