Bottle. Poured a very small white head that quickly dissipated, fine-small sized bubbles, no lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a yellow hue. Sweet, honey and apple aroma. Sweet, apple honey, somewhat syrupy flavor. Smooth, dry and slight syrupy mouthfeel. Light body.

Draft at the Brickskellar. Pale gold pour with some honey and apple in the aroma and flavor. A slight tartness coupled with some honey is evident at the finish. Decent.

Light apple and even lighter honey aromas. Gold. Flavor is sweet. I can taste the honey because I know it is there, but otherwise it is hard to pick out. Sweet, and a dry finish as the description says.

22 oz bomber, Calandro Supermarket, Baton Rouge, La. Pours a crystal clear pale golden, no head. Aroma of airplane glue, not pleasant. Reminds me a bit of a stale mead. Some honey flavor, but mostly sticky and cloyingly sweet., Not much of a apple presence noted. Mouthfeel is sticky, in a bad way. Not the best cider.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with a modest soft peak egg white head. Mild green apple and light floral perfume invade the nostrils. Dry mead qualities apparent. With a tart apple backdrop. A mix of sparkling mead and apple juice. Actually not that bad. An interesting twist. Somewhat thick on the palate.

Clear amber color. Gee, I wonder what this one might taste like. Hmmm... perhaps, apple? I didn’t taste much honey, but it was less sticky-sweet than some other mass ciders.

Light Blush Coloring. No Head. Carbonated...Sweet and then Dry at the End... The Honey Makes the Apple Seem Even Sweeter...Drinkable...

Looks like a pale lager with no head and little carbonation. But has a really sweet taste that finishes off with a little bit of tartness. I’ve always really liked Ace Ciders and this in my favorite one.

This, in a nutshell, was just too sweet. heavy and cloying, heavy on the tummy, and then some vinegar sour flavors in the back. Smells nice, though.
