2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sort of a urine golden. Very low carbonation and low aroma too. A little stewed apples that’s about it. Mid weight flavours with a touch drying pucker finish. Ok

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Clear piss color without any head. Aroma is fresh cut apples and old home brewer’s yeast after it sat in the slap pack to long. Apple juice, bready malt, weak yeast. The finish really isn’t as dry as it would lead you to believe. Not bad put the nose with the yeast is a bit off putting.

12 oz bottle from Kroger. Pours a clear yellow golden color with no head. Thearoma and flavor have sweet apples, mmildly tart, hints of spice, this is dry compared to many ciders, still pretty one dimensional.

Bottle. Pours clear, light orange with minimal white head. Aroma is a little faint, touch of apples. Taste is very light, crisp, not a ton of flavor. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle. Golden pour, little head. This is dryer than the typical soda pop cidre but it does leave a sticky sensation as you go. Not offensive but don’t believe the label.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"lightest in color of the 3 AO ciders, and easily the lightest in aroma as well. Very traditional dry english cider. Bittersweet and pretty tasty. Simple. Nice, but my least favorite, if only because the othre two were so nice."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Methinks the orchard is angry because its apples have been used to create such a dull drink. And the additives pretty well quash the usage of "traditional" on the label. A vigorous pour produces a bubbly yellow body, pretty pale, with a slender head that rapi9dly reduces to a ring. The aroma is light, some sweet apples with some of the skins. The taste is straightforward, sweet apples, much stronger than the nose. Not much here, but easy to down on a hot and muggy day.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass.
The appearance was the same in both glasses: glossy yellow color with a decent transparency about it to allow bubbly carbonation to be seen rising pretty fast.
The smell had some sweet apples with a decent crisp dried pears in the background.
The taste was mainly the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a mediocre sessionability as this had a harsh vinous quality about making it hard to put down the ol gullet.
Overall, another strike out. I don’t think I could return to this.
