4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I find the ratings of this cider curious -as a long long time cider drinker (didn’t even used to drink beer until I moved from the UK to the USA) I find this cider to be by far and away the best American dry cider I’ve tasted. No fizzy sickly sweet stuff but a true dry taste of apples. On a hot day, this one hits the spot.
Is it because the other reviewers aren’t regular cider drinkers?

I recently started drinking ciders. As far as ciders go this is one of the best I have had. Very crisp and clean as well as refreshing!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Flat, no head. Nose is light with apple but more on the sulpher and burnt wood side. The flavor is sweet and tepid with a cloying aftertaste and a dull thin body. Not very up front with the fresh apples or showing off a more dry yeasty musky side either. Kinda boring.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle thanks to Cavie. The look is clear, very light yellow color, and not too much head. The smell is apples, fruits, slight butter. The taste is sweet, apples, and fruits.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… Clear, light straw-colored cider with no head. The aroma is of oven-baked, spiced apples. Light-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and a rumor of carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Tart, dry finish

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours perri color with a few bubbles. Nice, crisp apple skin aroma. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is greenish apple with yellow apple skin. Something of a light weight, but clean and refreshing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Water clear with a splash of pee yellow. Smell is rotten apple with light chemicals. Tastes has weak flavors of old apple with a huge watery element. Not much backbone to this guy.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle thanks to cavie. Pours with a real pale and watery looking body and the faintest of heads. Sickly sweet aroma that smells exactly like an green apple flavored Jolly Rancher. Taste is cloyingly sweet and disgusting. Watery and fizzy.
I refuse to believe that this cider does not have any thing artificial in it...especially sweeteners. This stuff is an assault on true ciders. Absolute crap!
