0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Smells like a cider, looks like apple juice, tastes like syrupy sugar water. I had to throw it out after drinking half the bottle. I just couldn’t do it anymore. It is WAY TOO SWEET. Seriously, how can anyone stomach that sweetness? It’s worse than just regular apple juice, even. It is unnecessary.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to taster (shared with the Mrs.). Looks alright; a transpArent gold with thin white lacing that quickly dissipates. Smells tart and dry. Tastes sweeter, but not bad. Average on the palate. Simple and inoffensive; more like juice than cider though.

Clear yellow color with a bit of fizz and some white foam. Tart green apple up front with sweet sugar and apple to follow. A touch of straw and butterscotch. Sweet apple and sugar flavors. Some tartness, particularly up front. Mild straw, honey, and plenty of carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle same ABV listed as Hard Crisp Cider. I assume this is an alternate name or renaming, I will find out. Pours a clear yellow color with some bubbles. A light nose of floral apples. Sweet, at times quite sweet, some honeycrisp elements here, light vanilla. Dry at times. Good.

Tastes like Mott’s apple juice with a twang, great if you love a intense apple taste not terribly carbonated.
