This is a really good beer. Really easy to drink. Smooth flavor and nice after taste. Ace really does taste like champagne and like champagne you only want to have 1 or 2.

I canít put my finger on it but I am beginning to think ciders are not a style I like very much. While this one is not bad I just feel that I would rather be drinking an IPA, Belgian, or other lighter weight beer. Even so thanks to whomever sent it my way.

Aroma / Appearance - The transparent body and stark white head are both fairly predictable for a cider. Tart sour apples hit the senses with a mission. It smells like sticking your nose into a plate full of warm applesauce.

Flavor / Palate - Tart and ripe Granny Smith apples are the primary focus. A dry finish has vinous aspects but after a few sips I find myself thinking about what to open next. Despite being a refreshing option for a long holiday weekend I donít think Iíll be seeking out more ciders any time soon.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with plenty of carbonation but no head or lacing. Smell is apples and champagne, taste follows suit. One of the dryer ciders out there; my favorite. But why did the abv drop recently?

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Light golden pour with no head. Flower, wax, green apple, Californian Sauvignon Blanc. Some bitterness. More wine than cider. Not bad but want more character as a cider.

Yellow-gold with no head / Stylish, lightly sweet, nose of apple, grapes, and corn, with a hint of barnyard / Medium body, steely, resinous, and mostly dry with just a hint of sugar / Clean flavors of green apple brandy, pear, resin, and hay / Not really champagne-like, but a fine American cider.

ben4321 (5698) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 4/30/12, (same label as the picture except that it says it is only 6.9% alcohol)

Aroma: The nose has a good amount of apple, with some dry characteristics
Appearance: The pour is a completely clear light gold color (reminds me of white grape juice)
Flavor: Tastes sweet and fruity, some tartness too, this is somewhere between a cider and a wine
Palate: The body is light, but not at all watery, with average carbonation, and slightly tingly finish
Overall Impression: This is an alright cider. I didnít love it, but then again, I donít love most ciders. It was kind of different in that it had that slightly wine-like characteristic to it that you donít see in a lot of other ciders.

Bottle- Not much head/carbonation. Very pale color with a lovely fruitly nose. Dry, with a bit of savory around the edges. Pretty good all around

RobertDale (5446) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes a clear pale yellow with just a bit of head. Aroma of apples. Taste is sweet apples and yeast. Not too sweet. Decent.

madvike (3202) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle - Cascading bubbles rise from the pale clear yellow body to form a small foamy white head. Aroma is white wine, muted green apple, and a little pear. Very dry. The taste brings to mind champagne, with a touch of tart, dry apple throughout. The white wine character is still there and some red apple sweetness comes through on the finish. Tart and quenching, itís actually fairly substantial in the mouth, with champagne-like carbonation biting a bit. Iím really surprised this one is getting beat up so much. Admittedly I donít have many cider ratings, and I may look at this one and laugh someday, but I quite enjoyed this.
