2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked this up at Ralph’s because I hadn’t tried any ciders in a while. It’s bubbly it’s aroma doesn’t lie about the bitterness, which is okay for a cider. The aftertaste is a bit harsh but not unbearable. I would probably not go out of my way to get this again, but I’ve definitely had worse from the cider family.

12oz bottle from the state store
Pours clear golden, no head or lacing. Mild aroma of apple juice and cardboard, flavors of tart apples with a dry finish
OK, but not a fan of this one.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
smell isn’t very strong...taste is a bit too sweet...finishes with a very sweet ending that is a bit too much...quite good...but sugar needs to be cut back a tad to make it even better...similar to angry orchard apple crisp but has a more subdued apple taste with more sugar

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear gold with a thin white ring for a head. The nose smells like a half and half mix of apple juice and apple cider. The flavor is sweet the whole way through with a little bit of tartness that tries to even things out but fails. Light body with average carbonation. Not complex and a bit too sweet for my taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks alright; an amberish gold with razor-thin white lacing that dissipates very quickly. Smells and tastes of sweet apple cider with an average mouthfeel. Meh.

Golden orange pour with a short lived white head. Green apple candies on the nose. Some tartness, a bit of citric acid, sugar, and sweet apple juice. The flavor is kind of watery. Lots of green apple, some tartness, citric acidity, and sweet apple juice.

Quite nice and sweet. No so cripsy but fine refreshing. NIce goldean features and some foam although not interesting for it.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with small white head that quickly diminishes to nothing the aroma is apple and citrus. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet apple and tang. Easy to drink a good cider from Hornsbys.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A sweet, hard cider with an apple and cherry nose. It’s not very tart or dry. Decent flavor, but it’s rather mild and certainly nothing special in any regard.
