4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I liked this one slightly better then the Granny Smith. It had a little more of a classic cider profile. I do wish it was a tad sweeter, but if you like your cider dry this is a good one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great cider and one of the best I’ve had. It’s light amber with a few thin bubbles immediately vanishing to a thin ring that eventually disappears - actually about as good-looking as cider seems to get. The aroma is light very ripe appels with 7-up, lemon. The taste is fairly full-bodied, lightly musky ripe apple to a drier apple finish, a nice, ful apple flavour and it’s neither too sweet nor too dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet apple and candy aromas and a crystal clear amber body. Sweet red and sour green apples tastes that are in good harmony. A slight pucker and authentic apple flavors. Good carbonation (not too much or too little). Finishes sweet with a lasting taste of golden apples. Very refreshing.

Doesn’t smell that strongly of apples. I actually kind of liked this. Not too sweet or apply, it’s got a bit of juice flavor that stays for a long time. A very nice finish. Good stuff.

Wow. This actually poured much darker than I expected. Great cider taste without being sickeningly sweet. It’s actually very much like drinking apple juice, but in a good way. One of the better ciders I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Wednesday evening beer tasting and shared by JK. From a 12-oz bottle pours a clear light golden apple cider with some light bubble ring on glass side. Aroma of sweet apple cider, a touch of brown sugar, some herbal spice and a touch of caramel, Taste is medium bodied, a good balance of tart and sweet apples with a hint of alcohol burn. Finish is semi-dry with a light spiced apple aftertaste that quickly disappears.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brownish copper, small, loose head. Smells like apples and a little bit of caramel. Taste is apple juice and some citrus notes. Ok at first, but gets a little tedious...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at Trader Joe’s. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is red apples that seem a bit fake. Medium crisp body with light carbonation. The flavor starts with semi-sweet red apples and some spice. The finish has a decent pulpy taste to it. A decent cider.
