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.

On tap at The Lodge, Hilton Head. Nice appley tart aroma, crisp and juicy. Medium golden clear with no head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts tart and crisp, with refreshing acidity, juicy apple taste, and the right amount of sweet balance. Clean refreshing after.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Picked up a Julian Hard Cider in one of their awesome 22oz bottles. The 1st thing that attracted me was the bottle but I was shocked by how fresh it tasted. It didn’t leave that slimy feeling in my mouth like a few other ciders and that 6.99% catches you by surprise. Was a pale and natural color and had a smooth and refreshing finish- I found a new favorite cider!

A nice light carbonated cider, perfect for a hot summers day. The freshness of the apples jump out of the bottle at you. This is not a heavy scrumpy type cider, but more a champagne style. Very refreshing.

An excellent apple cider, not to sweet, not to spritzy. Refreshing summer afternoon drink straight from the bottle. The alchohol rating is 6.99%

light body, thin feel, fizzy, pale, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness.
I hate to say that I’m a fan of ciders because I tend to be so picky with them. Probably because I find most of them to be overpoweringly sweet. I’m more of an English cider girl with Strongbow setting the bar. Julian is in a class of it’s own. It’s about as far sweet as my palate prefers but it’s flavor is light and crisp and very drinkable - even for someone with a beer preference.

Julian Hard Cider takes a refreshing approach to Cider. Its a really tough decision between this and Strongbow, but I’m all about supporting my local economy and I’m pretty stoked to say that something this great comes from my backyard.
Oh and their logo and labeling has got to be one of the coolest out there.

Very pale gold with scant, white, head / Clean, lightly sweet, malolactic, apple nose / Medium body, also has good finish / Simple flavors of malolactic fermented apples / Very nice and drinkable its the best hard cider out there.
