2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, highly effervescent pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is tart, green apple candy, read apple sweeness, hints of vanilla and fruity yeast. Flavor is more sweet and candy-like in flavor up front, but with a tart, Granny Smith and more well rounded Red Delicious-like sweetness in the middle, finish tastes like tart and sweet apple skins. The overall sweeness belies the tart, lightly acidic, nicely dry feel thoughout, well mingles to a sharp, but light and blanketing carbonation. Pretty nice all around. One

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was really good stuff. Golden color with a thin white head. Fresh apple aroma and a pleasant apple flavor on the palate that maintains just a hint of tartness without verging into truly "sour" territory. Finish is fresh apples. Good for the summer, very refreshing.

355ml twist off. Another fairly insipid sweet cider produced on a pretty large scale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- Apples, white wine, grapes, sweet, strawberries.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Apples, white wine, grapes, sweet, slightly tart.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish.
O- Pretty sweet and some notes of grapes and wine so itís not strictly like drinking apple juice. A pretty good cider, although as sweet as it is, one is enough.

Sweet smell of apples with a standard cider color. Has a tart taste with a crispness at the back of it. A pretty damn solid cider for the price.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this cider poured a dark yellow-golden color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was strong apple juice with touches of brown sugar, cinnamon and apple peel. The flavor was strong sweet apple juice, tangy, sugar and a touch of honey. Long finish. Solid.

Decent cider. Strong fake apple juice aromas and flavors. Sweet.. A bit sour.. Mostly fake apple though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, crisp, and strong on apple. Very light tartness. Very nice and refreshing, but missing a bit of punch and sourness that would make it really good, but perhaps have a bit less mass appeal.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle- Iíve wondered if this is a real cider or alcho-pop... Not sure what the "natural flavors" are but "meh... whatever." Light, clear not too much carbonation. Aroma is more apple juice than cider. Taste is very sweet to begin with a very pleasing tart at the end. Were it warm Iím sure it would not be as nice. Over all a very, very drinkable product out of Stevens Point, WI.

Didnít like this one quite as much as the Mad Bark, as it was a bit sweeter and with a bit less complexity, but had a nice apple and honey smell and flavor.
