COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Traditional Dry cider is made in the style of English draft ciders. This cider is bittersweet and slightly spicy with a bright apple aroma. The dryness makes you pucker and look forward to another sip.

It seems sammy is a little late arriving at the cider scene, no? From a bottle. Smooth apple aroma. A little waxy on the tongue. Tangy at first. Sour apple and dry. Not too much co2. Not as sweet as woodchuck but still has some unfermented sugars in ther. Good, fruity sweeter bubbly wine feel. Goes down fairly easy, yez, a little winelike fer sure. Overall much above average for a brew but about average for a cider.

Bronzed, rather flat-looking. Musty smelling, accompanied by a tad of urine and apple. Nice balance of tart and sweet, mellow, musty, and with an aged quality. All in all, ok.

Bottle. Pours a decent cheddar orange with a nose of light apple and pear. Flavor is dry apple, sparkling white wine, and pear, Average mouthfeel. Not bad. A little more full-bodied than sparkling wine.

12oz twist-off bottle, green label. Clear gold color. No head. Not much aroma in this one. Just the slightest hint of a vinous characteristic. Fresh slice of a Granny Smith. Flat flavor, no sweetness at all. In fact you can barely tell it is a cider. Some tartness in the finish, very thin bodied. Overall, I like this AO best of the three I’ve sampled. Because it lacks all of the sugary sweetness the Crisp & Ginger offer, I don’t think this Traditional Dry will sell well at all. If I were to purchase any of these AO Ciders, it would be this one. (Sampled side-by-side with Angry Orchard Crisp Apple.) (3383)

bottle - Golden, minimal head, tart apple aroma. The taste was sweet but as the name indicates it wasn’t as sweet as the ginger version. It finishes moderately dry and crisp.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. A clear, orange to yellow color and lots of bubbles. Smells like Granny Smith apples with a little lemon to it. Sweet taste that moves towards bitter but not quite pucker dryness. High carbonation, light and crisp body. A tasty cider but not quite dry enough.

magsinva (860) - Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle - pours clear gold quickly disappearing head and some carbonation. Aroma red and green apples. Taste is tart and a little syrupy sweet. Palate is a tad dry, but not as dry as I was expecting from the discription. Very drinkable, but leans a little alco-pop.

This bottled cider from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The aroma was golden apple and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of dry red apples. A quaffable cider that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a nice dry apple note with a bit of tartness towards the finish. Flavor starts with tart apples with some sweet undertones and a dryness in the finish.
