Ace Cider is gluten free!

drowland (7111) - Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Bomber into a pint glass. Pours extremely clear, barely even yellow, with what amounts to no head. The aroma is dead on green jolly ranchers - holy crap. The flavor isnít so much as sweet as an overdose of super sour. There is a bit of dryness at the end, but holy sour, thatís what you get. If you search, you can find a bit of vanilla and maybe even some oak in there, but Iím not sure why. Super high carbonation.

Pale white yellow, whitish fizz. Green apple aroma, tart, sugar. Taste is green apple jolly rancher, no hint of the ABV, dry finish, tart.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Sweet, soft grassy blossom aroma. Very pale yellow, fizzy head, fairly still in the glass. Dry and tastes like old wood, green apple skin, dry finish.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle for $3.69. Bottle marked as 6.9% ABV. Pours with a small fizz of white and one of the most clear, near white, pale golden colors I have seen outside of a few Austrian Ciders (Obstbau Reisetbauer comes to mind). For a "Champagne like premium cider" this smells awfully candied with jolly rancher apple. C02 and some sulfur as well. A bit of green artificial melon. Not good. Taste is a mixed bag of Jolly Rancher Candy. Sticky and cloying, with sour tartness. Nothing like any sort of european cider they are trying to copy. I think the Joke is on me for buying this, I should have known better than buy an cider that has added flavoring not from apples! Thin and fizzy.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavż in Queens, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bomber from New Beer. Payed $4.25 for the privilege. Poured into the same Sly Fox tumbler Iíve been working all night. Cap flies off the bottle with a nice lava flow of smoke. Pour is stiff, but the blank white head fades faster then before. Barely a twinge of yellow in the glass. Color is lighter then the rest of the line. Smells just like their sweet tart perry. Iím so tired of this stuff. Maybe it comes off a touch rounder, with less alcohol & sugar, but it still feels like the same base attempt. Taste is somewhat different, finally. Big acidic crab apples & canned apple juice from concentrate. A little lemon sourness, a bit of salt, & some oxidation. Sulfites remain relatively in check. ...But wtf is this "natural flavors" at the bottom of the ingredient list?! Carbonation is working well. Slight tin feel, with a dry finish. Decent belly burn without much noticed on the palate. Best of the bunch I think.

PorterPounder (6539) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light golden with a slight green tinge to it and hardly any head. Aroma of green apple bubble gum, very artificial. Flavor has the same qualities with a very artificial apple flavor to it. Some granny smith notes make their way through to redeem it. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and has some hard water notes. Had better ciders.

Aurelius (4781) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Soft floral cider aroma. Very, very pale and it loses its carbonation quickly. Musty-earthy champagne yeast, tart, dry. Light body. Aftertaste is like astringent chablis. Meh.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Light in color with a slightly tart aroma of apple and pear. Flavor is a bit acidic, but seems more on the Perry side than cider-ish. Seems to have gone a bit wrong. Not very good at all.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 9, 2009
This is a quite mediocre cider very akin to a Pino Grigio or so. The floral aroma is not very attractive and rather girly. The palate is shallow and the appearance leaves virtually no head. Smells kind of like Smarties. It has the fizziness of champagne, but this beverage is too jokey. Unfortunately, the joke is on the buyer for having shelled out ze cashes.
