12oz bottle. Pale straw color with soft carbonation. Aroma is predominantly cherry with some apple in the background. Big cherry flavor with apple. Sweet, almost like drinking fruit juice. Medium bodied. The cherry twist is pretty good here.

Black cherries in the front. Golden straw with a disappearing head. Very sweet with strong black cherry notes. Medium light bodied with a semi tart crisp finish leaving a slight cherry taste in the mouth.

Not a terribly bad cider. I’ve certainly had worse. The cider poured a straw color with a quickly dissipating white head. There’s plenty of cherry and cola in the nose. The body was lively and well carbonated. I tasted a sort-of manufactured, fake cherry flavor. I was surprised to find some lacing left inside the glass. The cider finished up sweet.

Jow (3317) - New York, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Tap at Draught 55 in honor of today’s thread about bad American overly sweet cider I bought exactly that even though I disagree that’s the norm. Flat cherry hued Apple. Nose is sugary fruit and apple. Tastes of juice, Apple, sweet Cherry syrup. Sucky

DandyWolfFloyd (1017) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Aroma - black cherry soda like aroma, some pomaceous fruit as well. Appearance - maize yellow body, with nice nucleation. The head never really developed, only a faint ring. Taste - black cherry is definitely there as is a little pomaceous fruit seems more like pear than apple. Has an artificial nature. Palate - light body, thin feel, average carbonation, dry finish
