2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out a lifeless pale yellow, no visible carbonation. Smells a little like rotten apple juice, which I guess it is, but still. Some boozy notes that surprise at 4.8% abv. At least it tastes good, sweet apple juice that finishes quite sour. It has a good mouthfeel too. A cider to drink with your nose and eyes shut, if you can ignore the smell and appearance this is refreshing, easy to find brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale straw body with minimal to no head. The nose is lightly sweet with some light honey and a little skin. The flavor is fairly sweet up front, but gains a slight tartness towards the finish that brightens it up a bit. Still pretty run of the mill with most common ciders, but decent enough I guess. Light bodied with a bit of slight clinginess and fizzy carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12fl oz bottle.As expected pours a crystal clear pale golden colour with nearly no head.Aroma is of a sweet apple juice. Taste is sweet but not sickenly. Big apple taste but not much else.Low-medium body with a low carbonation. A bit slick in the mouth but still crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink. Overall this is just what I exoected. Crisp, sugary, apple taste that is drinkable. Not the greatest but tasty enough.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours clear extra pale yellow with a disappearing white head. fresh red apples, sweet ones, pears and apple sauce - subdued apple and fruit flavors though, light yogurty, chalky and mineral notes, hint of wood. low carbonation, light body - watery, relatively dry, slightly astringent and herbal-grassy finish. refreshing would be enhanced by a slight tartness that unfortunately doesn’t show. plain and straight inoffensive cider.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stuff is pretty similar to what homebrew cider tastes like if anyone is curious only this is more sweet. I am thinking they must have arrested the fermentation somehow--which is a completely reasonable thing to do, by the way. In any case, this tastes like a more sour, less-sweet apple juice w/ a bit of a floral note and a mineraliness in the finish. I prefer my ciders w/ a bit more sparkle than this as far as carbonation goes but the lower carb in this one makes it easier to chug, which I suppose will appeal to a certain demographic. It’s a pretty good cider, better than average for sure.

From the bottle. Smells like light apple juice, tastes like watered down apple juice. Not much of a cider characteristic.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What can I say sweet sweet fruit aroma. A bit unbalanced and a little overpowering but one isnt bad to have and sometimes a cider can be refreshing!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Label is identical, but is listed as "Harpoon Craft Cider". Looks sub-par; a transparent gold with no real carbonation or lacing. Smells of cheap fermented apple cider. Tastes like it smells with a slightly dry but average mouthfeel. A disappointing cider.

This is the best cider on the market hands down. It is made with beer yeast and not champagne yeast like other ciders. Phenomenal taste in comparison to other ciders on the market!
