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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The cider is a clear golden yellow with tons of carbonated bubbles. Has a smooth flavor with a dry finish.

I love this cider, but itís not for everyoneís taste. Extremely dry and tart with not much aroma. But Iím always looking for the driest, lowest carb/sugar ciders that I can find. So I can still enjoy alcohol while living a lower carb-gluten free lifestyle. Cider styles vary incredibly, so just depends what you like.

MrBeerFanatic (1016) - Friona, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Faint yellow without a head light carbonation. Aromas tart apple candy and slightly earthy. Flavors light tart apple cider and slightly woody. Lightly sour and medium sweet. Not to bad just very one-dimensional and can get boring after a while.

Intricate08 (40) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Like the description, this is a very champagne-like cider. Aroma has floral, lemon, and hints of spice. Light yellow with minimal head. Thin bodied, tart finish.

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 Aceís, and not because of the higher percentage (though that helps!). The aftertaste is the win for me: you donít taste the added alcohol level and instead itís 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. Iím happy I decided to take this one off the shelf.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2015
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.

Dogbrick (11512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Sample at Tonyís 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.
