2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is notes of apple juice, ammonia, candy sugar, plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. Man, if there’s one odor I love in cider, it’s ammonia. Crispin’s products are chock full of it. This one can’t quite match those ciders in terms of pure ammonia power, but it’s no slouch either. Seems like there’s sugar added to this too, or at least it smells like it. Pretty much just apple juice and unpleasant phenols otherwise. A total drain pour, but not QUITE as bad as I make it sound. Terrible but not horrific, if you get my drift. Crispin is horrific.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Poured a yellow color with a small sized head. For what it is, a cider it wasn’t too bad. What I would have expected - apples, some tart apples.

Smells like apple juice, looks like apple juice, tastes like apple juice. Watery apple juice like body, no carbonation with an apple juice aftertaste.

12 oz. bottle picked up locally. Pours a clear golden color with some fizzy bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet and mildly tart apples, light spice, somewhat dry, just not much to get excited about, at least the wife finished this for me.

Bottle at a party. This cider fad is pretty well developed now. Other fads have come into play and this cider stuff seems here to stay.
