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.

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.

Solid enough cider. Nice balance of Apple tart, sweetness, and dry finish.

Sweetness really dominates, a little bit crisp and dryness, but otherwise kind of indistinguishable from their other brews.

Very refreshing beer, easy to enjoy but after a few the sweetness starts to become overpowering.

Surprising white wine like sweetness & character that’s easy to drink with a slightly boozy, homemade wine like after bite.

Typical cider pour, fizzy carbonation settles to a few tiny bubbles in a golden body. Aroma of green apple Jolly Rancher, rather intense. Flavor also has a green apple persona which causes my cheeks to twinge and pucker. A few sips later I get some sweeter, riper apple flavor... but if this is the cider they are advertising as "Crisp", I am hesitant to try the Angry Orchard cider labeled as "Green Apple". ~~~~~~~~ 6x12 oz., Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL.

Not a bad cider at all. Quite refreshing. Very little alcohol was present when I took a whiff.

Great tasting hard cider. Smooth yet bitter and always delicious on a hot day

A little more appley than the others which I prefer. Tastes more like Granny Smiths. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle shared with the other half @ Montgomery’s Tower, Shrewsbury. Tis indeed crisp, with a golden Medium sweet glow, lots of flavour verging on artificial with hints towards apple-flavoured boiled sweets. Tasty and harmless enough.

Smooth and crisp with a light apple taste that is fresh and wonderful on the summer day.
