COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

On tap @ the. . . cidery? Clear pale pale straw with no head, just a couple streamlined beads of carbonation. Aroma has apple juice and apple candy. Flavor has pretty tart apples and not much else. Not much sweetness to be had and finishes semi-dry. Light carbonation with a light to medium body. Not too bad, if unspectacular.

Draft at the cider pub. Champagne color. Light fresh apple scent. Very crisp and lightly tart. Rather hints of Granny Smith. Perhaps the best cider Iíve ever had - freshness may have something to do with this. I think really fresh ciders are better than bottles. Course Iím projecting from a pretty small database.

bomber bottle. pours with a pale green tinge, kinda like cat piss. huge foamy head dissipates rather quickly. aroma hits of green apple, strong minerality and stone fruit. the taste is kind of like a demi sec champagne. tastes like a dry cider, imagine that. fruity, strong citrus and acidity, but thank god its not too sweet. the finish steadily declines leaving a lemon like citrus flavor lingering for a while. I havent had too many ciders, but I do fancy this one. It is quite refreshing.

On tap at ciderpub. Very thin, very dry, quite carbonated. Pretty much like drinking a champagne.

On Tap at Barley and Hops Tavern. Pours almost clear, no head. Aroma of ... nondescript apple/pear/tartness. Dry and alcohol level is well disguised. My favorite of CCC’s ciders, but not something I drink regularly.

On-tap at the Ace in-the-hole Pub in Sebastopol. Pours clearish green yellow, no head. Smells of faint apples. Tastes appley and slight rotten. Dry, thin body, fizzy carbonation.

I am not going to go into further detail about the flavor profile of this cider. All I have to say is that itís an amazing cheap and tasty alternative to white or sparkling wine (or even other ciders). Nice and dry, yet still very fruity, 8%, and it costs less than $4 a bomber. It may not compare to world-class BEER but if you can call what La Face Cachee de la Pomme does "cider," Ace Joker doesnít deserve to be kicked around as much as it has been here.
