4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
I found this today at a local grocery store in the mountains and couldn’t believe there was a JK there! The cider runs very sweet similar to an Angry Orchard Muse or Iceman but retains much of the flavors like some of the unfiltered Finnriver or deluxe Crispin. The maple is very distinct in it where it almost has a caramel flavor to it. I highly recommend this if you’d like to try a naturally sweet cider that isn’t as processed as many of the ones on the general market and is organic :)

Tap at Marciero. Glowing orange-amber with lace. nose of apple, some cinnamon, a bit of citrus. Huge juicy apple flavor, sweet and sour, lusciously balanced between them. Lightly but well spiced. Full and silky. This is really delicious, yet although it is not cloying, it is a bit too sweet to drink in quantity. These guys make great cider, though I prefer the tarter one.

Muddy Amber brown color. Big sweet nose with notes of stewed apples, vanilla, cinammon, with slight tartness. The mouth has low carbonation, slightly cloying, moderately sweet. Nice balance between sweetness and tartness. Lingeringn stewed apples and cinammon finish. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Rich gold pour without much head. Intense apple aroma, hints of cinnamon, very apple-pie. Strong powerful flavors, quite intensely sweet, rich apple, cinnamon, and a late solvent-like off flavor that detracts from the otherwise very nice whole. Moderately carbonated: not effervescent but not flat either. Even with that, though, it’s a gem if one is in the mood for a sweet (and lightly spiced) cider.

Bomber from Capone’s. Hay dark straw pour with minimal head. Nose is tart apple, cinnamon, grainy. Tastes very tart, with an intense apple flavor, notes of cinnamon, and a smooth finish. This one is great.

Sample courtesy of BiiruBierBeer, thanks Charles. It has a slightly hazy gold body. The aroma offers up straight up apple and a dash of earthiness. The taste is smooth sweet rich apple that again has an ever so slight sort of earthiness going on at the perceptible edges of the experience.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet apple smell. Apple cinammon taste which I thought was good, but I like their Northern Neighbour cider better.
