Bottled. Odd commercial deScription here, since the label itself says they’ve added apple juice concentrate to the fermented cider. And it taste like it, too. Pretty tart, I tell ya. Taste is just "cheap." Well, I knew it was cheap when I bought it, but I just wanted to finally put a commercial cider in my stats. I haven’t rated one yet because I have access to so much good homebrewed stuff.

Rated based on notes taken 16 July 2012 -- It’s a cider that’s pretty good.

Smells like generic preserves and pee. Dead golden body. Taste like a dry apple jolly rancher ( the candy, not a gay cowboy) carbonated on the palate.

Aromas of strawberry preserves, not in a good way... Pale pinkish-gold. Sweet, apple candy. Light bodied.

"a step backwards from the pear for sure. In a head to head, Ace pear whooped Spire, but the Apples were about even. Light in color and body. As usual, decent apple aroma, but nothing special. I dug the tartness of the flavor, but that’s really the only thing that stood out."

Bottle from BOTW. Slightly sugary apple nose, some minerals. Pale gold. Some bubbles. Sweet apples, minerals, finishes somewhat dry and minerally. Low carbonation. Not so interesting, and a bit weird in the after taste, but drinkable.

Pale yellow with no head and minimal carbonation. Not much of an aroma, slight apple note. Sort of sour apple flavor on the palate. Off-dry sweetness.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a wine glass. The appearance was a light hazy golden orange color with a quarter finger of white bubbliness that left no lacing. Lots of bubbles rose to the surface. The smell started off with mainly apples, dry and crisp. The taste was bitter and sweet as the apples take on a slight tartness to it. On the palate, this one sat fairly harsh on the tongue through the carbonation. A light vinous quality ran over my tongue. Overall, just another hard cider to me. I can’t say I’d have this again.

This is a pretty decent and fairly dry hard cider. It is a very plain looking pale yellow color and headless. The fermentation character here is completely clean, leaving the focus entirely on apples and some floral notes in the aroma. This is nicely tart, which lends a crisp character that lends drink-ability. I might complain this is a bit on the bland side but this is really rather good for what it is.

Sweet and tart in taste, this cider is good, but misses the spice quality of some others.

12 oz bottle at Cactus Jack’s into a pint glass. Gold and clear with minimal head, no lacing. Apples, apple juice, medium to heavy sweetness and lightly tart. Average body, kind of refreshing.
