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.

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.

Palidor19 (3040) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
almost crystal clear with a high fizzy carbonation taste. its got an extremely dry taste with very little of what was once apples. Almost like a Champagne. It doesnt taste like it has 8% and thatís a good thing

The aroma is super light with apples and pears even though I am sure there is no pears in it. The appearance is yellow clear. The flavor has apples, pears, and watermelon with a dryness that defies what is possible with cider. The palate is is watery. Overall it grows on you I didnít like it at all then I started to enjoy it quite a bit but there is no way it has 8% alcohol.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle from Santa. Pale golden champagne color with champagny bubbles and a mild frothy white head. Aroma is Granny Smith apple, some pear, white wine grapes. Tastes very tart, starting like a chardonnay then seemingly becoming more champagny, with some arthy notes. There is definitely a flavor delth in this, and although I prefer hard ciders with more sweetness, perhaps we can go ahead and call this one the gueuze of hard ciders.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours a watery gold with bubbles clinging to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is sweet green apples and sweet tart apple candy. The taste is the same as the nose with candied apples, tart apple candy and an odd vegetable note. That odd note becomes distracting the more I drink causing me to want to drink less of it. It actually tastes pretty harsh before I give up and move on.
