If you are looking for a dry hard cider, this is the deal. It has the taste, color and finish of the stuff that I used to get in the pubs in England. A total pleasure to drink.

Bottle at home in NH, shared with Dad. Pours clear, very pale with a light, fizzy head. Apple juice nose. Mild sweet flavor, faint dryness, bit of apples and mild dankness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild dry finish. Just sweet enough with a decent apple character.

obguthr (3919) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Perry-like apple aroma, slightly doughy and almost buttery. Clear, light golden color. Fantastic balance and even tastefully salty. Hearty for a cider. Fair amount of carbonation. Listed ABV of 4.6% is suspect; mine seemed considerably less potent. Highly recommended.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2009
Pours clear pale gold with a moment of bubbly white head. The aroma is moderate in strength and emits some green apples, a sense of white wine and a bit of alcohol chemicals. The taste is a bit apple-y with mostly semi ripe mixed with ripe apples to give it a bit of apple tartness and apples sweetness. Midway and into the finish it really dries out and takes on a bit of a white wine fruitiness. Decent stuff creating a nice balance between sweetness and dryness.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Poured into a pint glass. Soapy head. Clear, cream soda color. Smells of still water, faint apple juice, & Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Taste is mostly just mildly sweet apple chips mixed with a little white grape juice & sloppy alcohol. Half sour, mild tartness. Carbonation is just strong enough. It dries up on the blank finish. Sulfites are mostly in check. Better then Magner’s. Better then average cider.

cheap (4111) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Not much aroma but what is detected is rateher clean, sweet and dry. Reminds me a little of K cider or possibly a higher quality hornsby. Fairly friendly yet a little unrefined. on the palate. Comes across a little processed at times. Decent carbonation thru out session. Yes, a little rude on the finish for a cider.

I prefer my cider dry rather than sweet. Last night at a restaurant I tried a Strongbow and a Kelly’s side by side. I preferred the Kelly’s as it tasted less sweet. The Kelly’s was very light in color and moderately carbonated. It tasted like a light bodied, fermented cider. Not like a sugary-sweet apple juice that has a little bit of alcohol in it. The light body made it easy to drink, but it would be better if it had more flavor and character. All in all, though, I thought that it was OK. Not phenomenal, not terrible, but OK. I would buy it again if presented with a choice between it, Woodchuck, and Strongbow.
