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.

Smooth, easy to drink, not overly sweet, though not overly flavorful either. Still, it fits the season.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head that lasts a while for a cider. Aroma of sweet, artificial apples. The taste is tart apples. A bit grainy. Thin bodied. Meh.
