2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Nose is sweet and lightly floral apple with a mild stale note. Ultra-pale yellow, very clear, with very strong effervescence that takes the head away in two seconds, flat. Very crisp in the mouth, which is refreshing, but the apple flavor is very weak. No bitterness, not really tangy, either, and not too sweet. Nice medium body, good apple juice vibe.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear pale golden coloured body with a thin, very fast-dying (soda-like) head. Aroma of apples, yeast, lemons and way more apples - nice. Light-bodied; Pungent apple flavour of gala and slightly citric notes with a bit of a sweetness, some light acid and a good pure apple flavour throughout. Aftertaste is nice and mellow with a good sweetness and nice balance - no sign of alcohol. Overall, a good cider with mild and subdued flavours, but almost nothing, but pure apples. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 24-October-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-January-2014.

Can from Northern Liberties’ Foodery in Philly. Served in a rounded pint glass.
The color of pale lager, but not quite crystal clear. Constant activity.
Smell is flat & humble. Mild,, starchy apples, gummi bears, perry, maybe some menthol.
Flavor is middle of the road. Mushy sweet apples, vanilla, light initial tartness. Perry. Sweet grain & a silky, albeit sulfited finish. Lacks a pronounced acidity & feels flabby.
Carbonation is thankfully not to harsh for being forced. Slight amount of body. Alcohol is tucked away.
A touch too sweet, & not enough bite. Described in one word: saucy.

Trade with drowland - thanks! Pours a light golden, sparkling, nice bubble action Aroma has some light sour apple notes, a hint of wet corn. Flavor has some light golden delicious apple notes, a hint of apple butter. Mouthfeel has a slight metallic twang to it. Not bad.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Very clear, nearly white in color with white head. Strong bitter and sour taste. Almost like drinking sour apples. I did not like this hard cider at all. It was too sour for my taste. I couldn’t even finish it and poured it out!

Heard so many people talking about Jack’s so I finally gave it a go! I walked right into Warehouse, squatted down between the wine rows, popped it open and gave it a shot! TASTY - all the chemicals and rotten meat smell I need to get pissed!

On tap at Galaxy Hut. Pours a clear, light straw yellow with zero head. Nose is ok, apples, some pear, some candy sugar, a little lime. Flavor is not so great, reminded me of Sprite, green apple, sugar. Watery and yet sweet finish. Not the best.
