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.

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.

nakedwhendrunk (2095) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 1, 2014
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.

Frank (2868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
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.

ajnepple (2183) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Part of a side-by-side cider tasting, thanks David! Poured from bottle into a snifter. Clear golden colour. Predictable aromas and flavours of fermented apple juice, but fairly harsh, metallic, and one-dimensional compared to others we sampled. Strong carbonation, too much bite.

Not too fruity or sweet like most ciders. Has a nice sour bite to it. Starts off with a nice soft flavor.

BVery (6266) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale pour with very minimal head. Mild sweet apple aroma and the same on taste. Something a little artificial in the taste as well. Decent beverage but I’ve had lots of ciders that are much better than this.

Bottle. Poured very pale yellow no head. Sweet apple juice flour aroma. Vom acidic taste.
