COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle at Chriso Tasting, London - thanks to Chris. Pours clear yellow with a vague, white film. Sugary apple nose. Big sweet flavor with stewed apples and ripe apples. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, fairly sugary with light spice and more stewed apples. Nice cider, if on the sweet side.

BMan1113VR (7853) - 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.

j12601 (6584) - 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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Sampled at the Furnace Brook Winery. Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells of tarte dry apples, touches of sourness. Tastes tarte and semi sweet with a nice appley finish. This cider is available in 6 packs at the winery for $9.99 and is a steal, IMO!

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.
