COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our original hard cider is hand-pressed and is distinctly reminiscent of its UK predecessors; refreshing medium body and not too dry with a crisp apple finish.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Slightly sparkling medium gold pour, not much bubble action or head. Decently fresh apple aroma. Flavor is pleasant with some nice golden delicious notes, nice balance of sweet and sour. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Decent.

This doesn’t have the best aroma - a little vinegary, earthy. Twistoff longneck with a bad label. Clear, very pale, no head. Sweet, a little earthy, apple (obviously). Mouthy, loose-grained carbonation. Sweet finish. Meh. ABC Betton.

Lemke10 (678) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2013
This pours a clear, light amber color with minimal carbonation. The taste is simple like you would expect from a cider. Fairly simple yet refreshing and not overly sweet.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear straw colored with minimal head. Nose is apple, mild honey. Tastes crisp, with notes of apple, honey.

smaynard6000 (550) - Apopka, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with just a fringe of fizziness around the edge of the glass. Aroma is fermented apple. Somewhat sweet with a lingering sweet finish. Not bad, pretty average.

zach8270 (3209) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with no head but nice and lively carbonation. Very dry and earthy apple aroma which I prefer to the sweet and candy apples of other ciders. Slightly sweet and earthy at the start of the taste. A nice and natural tartness comes up at the end as the sweetness fades. Finishes dry and clean.

Sweet with little apple taste. Totally clear amber color, with minor head. They claim that it is "... reminiscent of it’s UK predecessors.". Ain’t so!

Metalchopz (2117) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Had a big can of this in the States and not why most reviews are not bad. The one I had was not good at all. Golden colour and highly carbonated. Started decent with apple juice smell, but then, a light chemical appeared. Sweet tasting with apples notes. Very light sourness in the aftertaste. Actually, not liking the aftertaste. Not really good overall, too sweet and almost fake. Also written, "less than 1% natural flavors"... WTF !??!

can. Golden with minimal head. Lots of apple flavor. Not complex but nice, simple and tasty.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2013
bottle via UDbeernut. Pours a deep golden with sparse carbonation. Nose of apples and sugar. Body is moderate and fujiesque apple tart. Tartness is dulled by the encased sugar. While I expect a cider to be on the sweeter side this was just over that tolerance for me. A solid NY product. Nice on this cold day of work.
