Picked this up at Ralphís because I hadnít tried any ciders in a while. Itís bubbly itís aroma doesnít 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 Iíve definitely had worse from the cider family.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. The head lasts longer in the pint glass, but both heads are bubbly white and dissipate within less than twenty seconds tops. There wasnít any lacing and there was a ton of carbonated bubbles rising because it was a clear yellow color that was seen. The smell had some tart and sweet apples and thatís about it. The taste was exactly the same. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and could be sessionable pounder in the summer. But the carbonation came across pretty sharp on this one. Overall, for me, not exactly one Iíd have again but then it is a cider.

Bottle from old backlog notes. Pours a clear golden/light amber color with nohead. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, apple cider, mmaybe just ahint of skins but not much else.

Just a tick from the Winn Dixie. Sold as Hard Amber Cider now, new label. Possibly the worst cider Iíve ever had, though I guess it isnít a bad drink. Dull golden color, lifeless. Apple nose but tart and sweet flavors are a bit overhwhelming, alcohol is prominent, quite winey really - and in the end Iím left with the feeling Iíve just drunk some bum wine. But, on the bright side, this would rate highly compared to some bum wines.

331 ml bottle (yep thatís what it says). Pours clear orange-amber with a lasting spit of bubbles on top. Nose is apple, caramel, dry grass and hints of alcohol and flowery perfume. Tastes of slightly under-ripe apple with some spicy citric tartness, and a touch of earthy caramel. Light body finishes less sweet than most US ciders. Medium carbonation is pleasant.

12oz bottle, thanks to cheap...I forgot to rate this a month ago or so. Pours a pale yellow with little lacing. Aroma of apples. Taste is apple, but not sour as I thought it would be. Refreshing, and not as sweet as typical ciders.

A bit of a sweet cloying aroma. Plain yellow color. This isnít very good. Certainly sweet but without much to really like.

Golden amber. A balanced sweet/dry/tart apple flavor. Fairly crisp with a nice, dry finish.

Sledutah (4392) - Utah, USA - OCT 20, 2013
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.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Decent transparent light amber hue. Really sweet apples on tongue. Thin pallent. A bit more substance than standard Hornsby. Macro version of Aengus
