Just Cider is made from traditional cider apple varieties grown at Talisman Farm in Boulder County. It is very dry and full-bodied, in the traditional "farmhouse" style.

Bottle @ home with a cheesy, plastic screw cap as slim ernie pointed out. Slightly hazy, golden appearance with a very light head. Fairly vinous, dry, light apple aroma. Sweet, fairly watery, plastic, dry yet boring, bland apple flavor. This is really watery, bland, lame, and frankly hard to drink. I guess slim ernie was right...

Bottle (plastic screw cap, oh-so-classy). No head (still). Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is notes of nail polish remover (acetone), modeling glue (toulene), plastic, and apples. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, no carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent. Oh dear. Mark has lost his way in recent years, it seems. In the early days, Medovina meads were truly the best in the land...I strongly recommended them to anyone who was vaguely interested in honey wine. But after several years, fusel alcohol became more and more apparent in the new batches and I stopped trying/drinking them. So when I saw a cider on the shelves a few weeks ago, I was very curious but skeptical. Alas, this is by far the worst thing ever to bear the Medovina moniker. Almost nothing but fusel alcohols and phenols in the nose...positively repellent. The dirty aftertaste came as no surprise, and frankly I didn’t even want to take a single sip based on the smell. It’s so very sad to see the mighty fall...
