3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is subtle and smells like yeast and apple juice, and the color of the cider is looks like a paler version of apple juice with no head or foam whatsoever. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, which isn’t too indulgent of a flavor to keep you away from sipping the drink, and the palate is dry overall, which is a result of the soft carbonation, long finish, light body, and thin texture.

Maybe it is just the label but I swear I taste apple in this. Of the series my least favorite as it is neither sweet nor tart nor dry, it just is. A bland offering that is more like juice than cider, hard or otherwise.

This one poured a golden darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of lightly tart apple,s oe light cheese and some earthy tones. Flavor was semi dry, but still sweeter than most, apple, light vinegar and some must. Ok.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is notes of apple juice, light notes of 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. Is this just the Crisp Apple version with a different sticker? It’s basically apple soda with dirty phenols. A joke of a cider.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear an golden with sparse carbonation throughout, no head.
Aroma: The aroma is a bit dry, bready and earthy, with apples and a bit of chalk. Not huge on the aroma here.
Taste: The flavor is nice, tart apples with a slight chalky maybe spicy and slightly earthy flavor here. I like drinking this, but don’t think much of it.
Palate: Light bodied with moderately sharp carbonation.
Overall: I admit I’m new to ciders, but this doesn’t do much for me. I would gladly drink it if someone gave it to me though.
