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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

Leighton (18704) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
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.

Bottle thanks to TheEpeeist. Clear bright yellow pour with some minor fizzy head. Aroma is super sugary apples. Tastes like overly sweetened apples but it’s still pretty good. A hint of oak and must. Light tartness in the finish. A pretty basic cider that’s enjoyable.
