RATINGS: 21   MEAN: 3.24/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.19/5   ABV: -
Made with McIntosh and Northern Spy apples. Johnny Mash has delicious oaky notes that meld magically with apple fruit on the palate. Slowly aged in American oak. Johnny Mash is a true patriot. For more information on this award-winning cider, visit: www.johnnymash.com Cider pairs superbly with fish, poultry, and pork. Not only can cider be substituted for white wine in almost any recipe , but it lends an incomparable and unique flavor to dishes. Also excellent as a tenderizer or marinade. Good cheeses for cider are Smoked Gouda, Cheddar, and Jarlsberg.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear mod carbonation with no head-. Aroma is apple, but green almost astringent and acetaldehyde coming through- solvent and prickly, some sweet apple must, oak, vanilla and earthy leather tones come through as well. Flavor is more acet, green apple, leather, moderate sweetness, a touch too sweet in the middle, moderate acid levels, light vanilla, some oak, phenol, slight apple pie spice, sharp and abrasive acid in the end- seems fake and overly sweet at times- strange.

In short: An apple strudel made with Granny Smith apples
How: Bottle 12oz. Has been in my cellar for a while. One year old? Sent to me as a bonus by someone? Thanks… someone.
The look: Clear dark yellow with no head to speak of
In long: Nose of apple strudel. Taste of apple strudel with bubbles. There’s a crispy sweetness in there that really reminds me of bakery crust and the apple taste is really like baked Granny Smith apples. That’s not the type of apples they mention in the description but this is what it tasted like to me. None of the annoying acidity that I get from many cheap bottled carbonated ciders. A little sweeter than the competition. Appropriate medium carbonation. I love ice-ciders and I usually don’t care for any of those cheap carbonated low abv ciders sold in 12oz bottles. Did I enjoy this one? I am unambiguously and firmly indecisive.

j12601 (9562) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice clean golden yellow with a medium sized creamy white head while pouring that subsides almost immediately. Really nice creamy apple, almost some of the soft candied apple aromas that show up in ice ciders. Medium bodied, really smooth and velvety but with some nice carbonation. Sweet ripe apple, nice big tart apple notes. Really tasty, with a long lingering tartness. Very pleasantly surprised, and glad I got a six of this.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2009
Light golden-yellow, no lacing, no head. Aroma is of apples, some dough for pie, good sweetness. Flavour is of apples, some cinnimon, white grapes, dry. Sweet and dry mouthfeel, med/light body, mild carb. Finishes sweet, lots of apples.

Quite nice, highly drinkable. Pretty damn good.

355ml bottle obtained in a trade with TheEpeeist, thanks Chris.
Opened March 2009.
No date.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle thanks to Cletus. Pours with a clear pale yellow body with a fizzy white head that vanishes. Aroma of tart apple, oak, honey, and dried up syrup. Taste is sweet and sour, with light vanilla. Artificial and similar to Wood Chuck, but quite a bit better. Medium to light force carbonation. Lingering stickiness. I appreciate the chance to try this new cider, but I am not a fan of the artificial flavors.

Bottle, thanks RadioMGB! Clear very light gold. Nose is apples, clay, earthy funk. Flavor is slightly tart apples balanced by a good amount of sweetness. Long really apple-ey finish. SOme tannins, but nice! Did I mention apples?

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours a clear, light golden color with soda-like carbonation. Minimal, fizzy traces of foam disappear almost instantly, watery sheeting quickly retreating back towards the body. The aroma is almost like a sweet apple soda, lightly tart and crisp from the green apple contingent, but more so sweet and sugary, with a subtle, oaky twang. Flavors follow suit, lightly tangy from the apple, with hints of French vanilla oak and sweet, soda water notes. Light to medium bodied and fizzy on the tongue, a saccharine residue lingers after the swallow. As soda-like, sweet ciders go, this one is relatively good, but that isn’t saying much.

12 oz bottle, thanks the the_epeeist for giving me the chance. Pours crystal clear with a champagne like color. Aroma is crisp and fresh green apple. Taste is bright, clean, sweet and perfectly ripe tart apples. Like walking through an orchard and eating apples right of the tree. Didn’t get any oak, but it might have helped to bring a perfect balance to this cider. Lots of white wine qualities as well. Chris, I must try the reserve. This stuff is delicious.

12 oz bottle. Clear pale yellow with some brief white froth. Nose is dough and fresh apple; like an unbaked apple pie. Crisp apple nectar that gets a bit syrupy; sticky lips. Restrained apple sweetness with a smooth, oaky tartness. Dry finish with lingering caramel apple and faint yeast. My first non-ice cider and i think it’s a good one.
