Aromas are pretty subtle with some floral and fresh apple notes, and a slight bandage/medicinal quality. Clear copper, peach color and a fully fading head. Off-dry, fruity, and tart. Light-medium bodied with a refreshing, zippy acidity, and cleansing carbonation, and finishes with some lingering sticky fruitiness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours the color of light lager. Sweet sticky fruit aroma. Flavor is apples, skins, and a touch of spice. Tart and refreshing in the finish. I don’t know much about cider but this is quite tasty.

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.

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.
