3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks Subpar; a transparent light Apple juice with virtually no lacing and soft carbonation. Smells and tastes of sweet hard cider with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle which lists the abv @ 5%. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that lasts through the first sip. Weak aroma of apples. The flavor is sweet apples. To be honest, this tastes as though it has been back-sweetened with non-alcoholic cider.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint aroma of apples...some spice in there. Think I had a flat bottle....no head...barely any carbonation. Clear yellow color. Sweet, tart apple flavor up front. Rich sweetness, tastes like real apples. Finishes slightly dry, with the same sweetness with a touch of bitterness at the end

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BOTW. Medium golden, a bit fizzy. Nice ripe apple nose, semi-sweet, somewhat tart. Taste is quite sweet up front, super ripe apples, almost baked and sugared. It dries out a bit later, but not quite enough. Light tang in the finish. Body is quite full, almost syrupy.
