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 at Windy city red hots. Pours apple colored. Big green apple notes on the nose. Nice tartness on the tongue along with green apple vibe. Clean finisher. This is some damn good cider.

I certainly like the concept, packaging, and facility. Clear golden, no head. Aroma is dry, tart, green apple skin. Taste is again dry, lactic, sharp green apple, good.

12 ounce can shared by the guys at Beer Run. Pours a very light golden color with just a bit of a head. Very sweet apple aroma with a bit of a tannic finish. The taste is tart apples with a very sweet finish and a faint bit of vanilla. Medium boded. Fairly simple but pretty drinkable.

drinking @ The Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford,PA .. . pours a light pear .. medium fizz mouth .. no foam .. pear juice tartness and some sour apple .. . slick and fizzy, but lackluster.. . needs something to make it zing .. . . what a brilliant idea to have a fountain in here...

This poured a very light clear yellow almost white color with a white head. Aroma was mainly dry, somewhat funky and cheesy granny smith apples. Flavor was fairly dry, not overly sweet like most commercial ciders, light earthy notes, light tang, and granny smith apples. Ok.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2014
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.

Drinkable and enjoyable too. NOt so sweet but neither dry. Interesting looks and proper gassification.

Tap at Iron Horse taproom. Pour is very clear golden to super straw with heavier carbonation and no head formation. Nose is sharper green apple. Taste is tangy, lactic, sharp Granny Smith apple. Nice phlegmy lactic finish. Shady and bright. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
