COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Julian Hard Cider recipe originates from 1670 colonial America and is comparable to the finest British ciders. Unlike many “impostor” hard ciders on the market, it is easy to have more than one pint of Julian Hard Cider as we do not use concentrated apple Juice or additives which leave the drinker with a lingering sugary film and after-taste. Why is Julian Hard Cider the choice of true cider lovers? We have only one ingredient… the freshest apples in the world! Our cider is lightly carbonated with tartness, acidity and a clean dry finish, enabling it to stand firmly on its own or compliment your favorite meal. At Julian Hard Cider, we invite EVERYONE to put our hard cider alongside the best in the world, as we painstakingly strive to build our fan base one drinker at a time.

jjuf1853 (1200) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Pours clear and nearly colorless with just the faintest hint of pale yellow. Almost looks like a clear soda. Aroma is somewhat sweet but not as sweet as some ciders. Flavor is nice and light, again not as sweet as some ciders. Overall not too bad.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. poured a clear ginger ale color, almost like water. Head is non existant, small amount of lacing. Aromas of apples, bannana runt candy, and other tart notes. Tast is a sour green apple, bannana candy, cinnamon, and other fruit. Basically motts with a little alcohol added. Alright. Not big on ciders.

OUTSTANDING! As a home cider-maker, this is exactly what I try to make every time. Clear with microscopic bubbles, this really is a true cider, not that sweet cloying stuff we generally think of (as Americans) as cider. Very champaigne-esque. Now if someone would make a session cider similar to this the cider community will be satisfied.

Bomber poured into snifter. Drinking the Cherry Bomb. Big sense of cherry in the aroma and flavor. Tart and sour. Tasty .

onceblind (3670) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Tap at Vine st. Pours curiously clear, like crystal water and no head. Smell is typical boozy apple with just a hint of cardboard. Taste was kinda the same; red delicious mixed with sour green apple, really dry, crisp, sour, boozy. Not a huge fan.

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2012
2/27/12. 22oz bottle. Clear pour, barely tinted yellow, close to water, with a fizzy head that’s gone instantly. Tart apple aroma with a touch of yeastiness. Tart apple flavor, sweeter than the aroma suggests, with more yeast presence as well. Not bad.

PorterPounder (5191) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Almost crystal clear pour, slight tonic water darkness to it - nice bubble action; no head. Barely discernible aroma, just a hint of artificial apple. Flavor is pleasantly sour with some nice Granny Smith notes. Bit of a funky aftertaste dampens my enthusiasm. Mouthfeel has kind of a tonic water-like bubbly spritz to it. Expected a bit more.

Clear with a hinto yellow no head or lace. Light apple with a hinto sour. Light sour apple with pretty nice carbonation. Thin and watery

DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
22oz bottle, shared with Taylor. Interesting, nearly colorless appearance, just a champagne-like slight yellow tint. She thought it smelled like red wine. The texture of this is a lot like champagne, too... No wonder the ladies at the wine store were such fans of this. Lighter carbonation, with a tart sweet taste. I’m still not a cider-fan, but this is refreshing.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle - app. Vintner - I got this in August, but am just now tasting it. Pours a very clear pale gold with no head and few tiny bubbles. Aroma is faintly acidic apples. Taste is tart. Palate this thin, finishes dry. I’m not getting a lot of alcohol. This is not a complex cider, but it’s OK.
