1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is notes of apple candy (Jolly Rancher), grass, hint of plastic. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent. A joker, indeed...as in, a joke of a cider, or, the joke is on the customer...basically just artificially flavored apple soda.

Pours a clear pale yellow. Faint aroma of grass and apples. Dry, tart, and fizzy. Similar to cheap sparkling white wine, but with tart green apple finish.

One of my favorite Ace’s, and not because of the higher percentage (though that helps!). The aftertaste is the win for me: you don’t taste the added alcohol level and instead it’s a nice crisp, champagne like drying effect.

While I had anticipated a somewhat boring and plain cider, I was pleasantly surprised. Not so bubbly, slightly dry, but leaves a pleasant taste on the tongue of fresh apples that leaves you wanting more. I’m happy I decided to take this one off the shelf.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Growler House, served in a flight. Pours a clear bright pale yellow with no head. Surprisingly tart apple, of a green variety, with lemon-lime, faint florals, and sugars. Gets sweeter as it warms. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a sour, tangy, sweet mouthfeel. Interesting cider.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Tony’s Darts Away. Pale yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apples and mild spice. Light to medium body with flavors of apples, herbs and citrus. The finish is dry with a mild apple aftertaste. Average overall.
