b3shine (7405) - Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
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.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
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.

douglas88 (7797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2013
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.

brittanynl (42) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Tastes like Mott’s apple juice with a twang, great if you love a intense apple taste not terribly carbonated.

DMLINAZ (331) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Smooth, easy to drink, not overly sweet, though not overly flavorful either. Still, it fits the season.

Drake (11432) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
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.
