COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lot is read into the word craft or micro-produced. But how many cider companies have been growing apples for over 50 years? Not many. With Jack’s Hard Cider, we pride ourselves in the fact that we produce a hard cider from the ground up – literally. We grow the apples, press apples, ferment apples, and package the final product all from our facility located in one of the Apple Capitals of the World, Biglerville Pennsylvania. In a town that claims some of the biggest brand names in Apple Products, Jack’s Hard Cider was inspired by “Jack” Hauser, who led Musselman Foods into national recognition in the 1950s, and who is the patriarch of the Hauser Family, makers of Jack’s Hard Cider.

Can from Seijo Ishi. Sweet apple and sugar aroma. Clear thin gold color. Apples, bit of earthiness, some small spice. Lightly tangy, thin, and smooth body. Simple, easy drinking. More interesting (a little) than the Helen’s Blend cider.

Pours a clear yellow from the can with minimal head or lace but lots of bubbly carbonation. Aroma and taste of sweet apples with a hint of acidic finish. Dry and bubbly, but super sweet. It’s a cider, meh.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is fairly typical cider, apple skins, honey sweetness. The flavor is certainly on the sweeter side, lots of apple juice and a slight acidic twinge that makes the mouth water. Short and quick finish. Light bodied with just a bit of stickiness and fizzy active carbonation. Meh, a fairly average sweet cider, but it’s pretty tasty.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear whitish yellow. Aromas of light apples, light champagne. Tastes of apples, white wine, champagne, sugary notes. Light body with a dry finish. Not bad, pretty much your average easy drinking cider.

Sour apples are pretty much it here. First taste was good, gets more generic with every swig. OK, nothing special.

On tap at Funk Brewery. Poured a clear yellow color with no head. Typical cider - sweet apples. Non offensive and on tap here for those who don’t want beer.

Draft at Right Proper. Poured a clear golden yellow color, mostly still. Aroma was light apples, touch of sweet and semi-sweet apple notes. Nothing crazy, perhaps a bit boring, but not bad.
