Bottled. Odd commercial description here, since the label itself says theyíve 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 havenít rated one yet because I have access to so much good homebrewed stuff.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Windfall apple aroma. Yellow with a ring of white bubbles. Artificially tart windfall apple flavor. Light body, lively carbonation. This is the second ace cider Iíve had, and itís just as artificially tart (malic acid added) as the first one I had. I guess they thought it would help with the rotted apple flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours light yellow with a thin ring of white bubbles. Nose is sweet apple juice, cut with some medicianal bitterness. Taste is sweet and apple-ish, straight up with an abrupt finish. Some sweetness lingers, and the whole thing tastes artificial. Thin, fizzy body. Reminds me of some of the Woodchuck varieties.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clean straw color with a touch of bubble but no visible head. Aroma is pure apple juice slight rotten fruit. On the palate its juicy with a sweet slightly tart flavor profile that isnt bad but lacks any complexity and finishing qualities of fine ciders.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this cider poured an exceptionally pale yellow color with a minimal white head that faded instantly and left no lacing. The aroma was tart apple and almost vinegar. The flavor was tart, bitter and sour with a moderate apple juice element and nothing else. The finish was medium length sour apple. Thin and watery body. Uninspired.

Aroma of sour apple. Very tart apple flavor that is tainted with a vinegar like taste. Disappointing.

The taste of this cider was pretty basic, light bubbles came out sort of dry, and only diluted the sweetness. Iíd say the best thing about this one is the smell - fresh apple juice and maybe even honey in the background.
