Default Brewer's Best cider?

Anyone ever tried Brewer's Best Cider House Select cider? I was planning to start another batch of EdWort's apfelwein when I saw my LHBS just started carrying it. I grabbed a pack of the spiced apple cider hoping it might have more of a cider flavor than the apfelwein, but I haven't had a chance to start it up yet. Just curious how it will come out, and also whether it will produce a krausen during fermentation. If not, I'm probably going to start it in a 6 gallon carboy.

I have three of them going: Apple, Cherry, and Mixed Berry. I should have bottled a few day ago, but work is keeping me busy. Did mine in 7.9g bucket. Nothing I would call krausen, but it was especially vigorous for a couple days. They make 6 gallons so I'd use a bigger primary.

Just a quick update...I cracked one of these the other day and was pretty happy with the result. It had a great cider flavor with spices similar to apple pie. Considering I paid $40 for a 6 gallon batch, I'd definitely recommend it. I think I might try some of the others.

I just bottled three. They tasted pretty darn good flat and warm. Waiting a week or so to carb is driving me nuts.
