COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

355 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Near zero head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with slight soft carbonation; Slightly musty and strong tart aroma of apple juice, white wine, sugar and soda; Mid to high sweet taste of apple juice, faint white wine, sugar, wood, light tannic and soda water; Light body, thin slick palate; Mouth feel is very sweet and weak tart apple juice in light musty background. Carbonated soda feel is quite strong. Weak tannic, basically tasted like sweet apple juice; The 5% booze is deceiving, not much going on. WTF… Wet after taste, very easy and sweet to mouth.

Comments: This is really cheap stuff - looks bad, too sweet, too little tartness and dryness, no real apple taste and too little booze. Being labeled as ‘Hard Cider’ is an ominous sign just like any malt liquor being labeled ‘High Gravity Lager’. Strictly for college kids who want to show off their booze creds.

On tap at 508. I can’t imagine this was how it was supposed to taste, but far too sweet and acidic. I could taste my teeth melting out of my head. Will need to re-try from bottle. Overwhelmingly sweet, although flavors and palate were good.

355mL from a house party. Clear deep golden. Weak to no foam. Nose is plastic, weak apple pie, pie crust. Taste is tangy, lactic, sweet apple pie, heavy children apple juice. Acidic, tangy palate. Sour, refreshing but ultimately a juice box.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a fizzy, dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is apple, with a hint of sour....taste is sweet apple, with a bit of Granny Smith.....mouth feel light, very slightly tannic, carbonation makes a light soda quality. This is a simple cider, drinkable but boring. BJCP 6/2/11/4/6

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours gold with a short lived and small white head. The nose is pure apple juice. Definitely on the sweeter side with a solid apple juice flavor but a slight tart bite on the back end. Simple but decent.

Looks, smells, and tastes like apple juice, but with alcohol. Pure and simple. Not my thing, but not bad.
