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.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Tap at Meridian Pint. The pour is clear water- looks like seltzer water. Insane- could not tell the difference between this and water. Looks like extremely light perry. No head, little carbonation. Small chemical aroma with black licorice and burnt plastic. Taste is crisp and refreshing with small cardboard. Mildly tart with a yogurty palate. Maybe small lime and citrus.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2011

Bottle 22fl.oz.

Clear light yellow colour with a small, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate apple and pear. Flavour is moderate sweet and light light acidic with a average duration. Pretty disappointing cider ;O( Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. [20111001]

a little more dry than I expected, but clean finish indicates only fresh fruit used. Some are put off by the light straw hue.... But those that know cider will recognize this as a sign of quality fruit used in a quality process. No oxidation = light hue. Excellent!

saxo (13851) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Small head with short duration. Color is pale as water. Aroma and taste are light apples with some acidity and high carbonation. Crisp and clean, but very weak. More like a soda.

beernovice39 (3120) - Montana, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle pours a pale gold and a thin fizzy white head. Scent is apples. Taste is the same. Not something I really care for.

Wombata (391) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 5, 2011
Aroma: Not strongly aromatic but some Golden Delicious apple and pear. Flavor: Light note of lemon chiffon, pear with green apple and mineral on the mid-palate. Finishes with Golden Delicious and mineral notes. Comment: Dry. Would work well with sea food. Good value versus a Sauvignon Blanc.

svandyke (71) - USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle- Pours a very clear pale color with no head of which to speak. Slight smell of yeasty apples, but again, very slight. Taste is acidic with a very tart finish. A bit spiky while it rolls around the tongue. Champagne type, obviously much fliltered. Nice and light.
