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.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark gold with a few bubbles. Light aromas of floral and appleskin. Near med body. Flavor is tart, astringent apple skin. I’m thinking some red apples are in this. It is very dry. Very.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2012
Pours dark straw with minimal head and a lot of carbonation streams. Nose is earthy apple and some cinnamony hints. Tastes crisp, with a tart apple flavor, and some cinnamon and brown sugar notes. Stays tart throughout, with a medium and fizzy palate.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 9, 2012
Deep gold with a white head. Tart apples with a dry finish. Good but a bit boring.

wlajwl (3738) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Aroma is mildly musty apples and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is tart apples, a hint of sweetness and a very dry finish. Pretty good.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a decent sized head. Aroma of tart apples and an almost herbal note. The taste is sweet apples with a tart finish. A bit of spice. Thin and watery. Meh.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nothing really going on here. Has the apple presence but not a spice that most ciders have.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with no head. Aroma is sweet fruit and red apples, but you can barely tell its there. Taste is medium sweet. I would not call this dry at all, but I suppose it is compared to their other offerings. Taste of sweet fermented fruits and champagne yeast. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s not too bad. It still beats the pants of of most of the Woodchuck offerings.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Medium gold pour, slight bubble white head - dissipates quickly. Fresh apple aroma, Golden Delicious comes to mind. Flavor is full bodied and sweet. Fresh golden delicious apples done up well. Nice textured mouthfeel. Very flavorful cider.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Poured into a SA perfect glass. Clear amber/oak colored body. Lingering frothy ring of head. Smells like a blend of Juicy Juice apple grape juice, banana/plastic weirdness, & powdered sugar. Taste is like licking the inside of a Blow-pop wrapper. Apple-ish flavor, waxy plastic & stale water dominate. Lacquer, grape juice, & green Skittles fail to keep this drink tasting dry. A touch of bitterness that keeps me from regurgitating it. So-so crispness. Acidic, grain finish.

scarletfire65 (904) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Crystal clear golden. No head. Aroma is apple juice. Flavor is slightly alcoholic apple juice, no complexity at all. Just a bit of tartness on the finish, but overall it is quite sweet.
