0,5l Flasche. Goldene Farbe, kein Schaum. Aroma nach Apfel wirkt etwas künstlich, süß. Im ganzen zu flach.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle, thanks to a rep... Best before 10/2014. Clear golden color, slightly orange. Little ring of white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Good yellow/red apple aroma, nice amount of sweet and juiciness, not too tart or syrupy. Light to medium body. Smooth, lightly crisp light carbonation. Lightly slick, lightly dry in the finish. An alright cider. Not much to it, but better than expected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold body with minimal to no head. The nose is lightly sweet with some apple skins and a light baked apple note. The flavor is pretty well balanced as far as the sweet to dry ratio goes. Better than many ciders I’ve had that are overly sweet in my opinion. Some nice baked caramelized apple flavor on the finish. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. A light lingering sweetness. Pretty decent macro cider, better than most I’ve had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours clear bright golden with a small bubbly white head, little retention obviously. red and green apples, pears and small yellow fruits - but overall faint fruitiness though, pepper, yeast, hint of woodsy notes, lactose-like sweetness - not too disturbing. moderate carbonation - slightly fizzy, light body - watery, lightly sweetish finish. lacks in taste, acidity and balance, but not too bad for a macro-cider.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tasted on 1/22/14 from a capped 330mL bottle. Pours clear, deep golden with some clear bubbles but no head. The nose is very straightforward ripe apple juice with some tartness, and just a touch of cheesy yeast. The flavor is the same, this pretty much just tastes like apple juice with a bit of yeastiness. The body is light with some fizzy carbonation and a short apple juice finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from RW in Voorhees. Nose is straight apple, but quite sweet. Pours ultra clear golden but with strange red-orange overtones, never seen anything quite like it. No head, or at least it’s gone in a blink. Thin taste vaguely of apples, not really any alcohol, but not much flavor, either. Medium body but flattish. I understand that this is one of the world’s favorite ciders, but it has that 1950’s style mass appeal which does not resonate with today’s attitude or palates. Apple juice for the morning commute.

No really body to this cider, despite it still being easily drinkable it is not that great. Slight off apple flavours.
