2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s 12 oz bottle. Pours and almost clear light golden, quick bubbly head on the pour that quickly dissipates. Aroma has some very faint sour Granny Smith notes. Flavor is very mellow with some light Granny Smith sourness, a touch of club soda - not exactly loaded down with flavor. Mouthfeel is slightly artificial and dry. Passable.

Almost totally clear, like carbonated water. Not much aroma, and taste is standard sweet apple juice with light tartness. $2/12oz

Very, very pale - looks like perry. Squat, west coast longneck - brown, not the green pictured. Pleasant, greenish apple aroma with very very light vinegar. Twangy, light vinegar, moderately sweet. Apple and nothing else. Light body.

Pleasantly surprised with this cider. It was crisp and clear, medium body and very smooth. Good tart flavor of Granny Smith.

Bottle. Golden color, tiny bubbles. Sweeter than I thought it would be. Not very tart considering it comes from a granny smith. Aroma is a cross between a dry wine and apple juice. Not bad for what it is. Graded lower because of the tartness factor.

This cider is best when it’s very cold, otherwise it has kind of a winey aroma and flavor. It’s nearly as good as the ’Woodchuck Granny Smith Cider, but a better price. It has a nice clean, sour apple flavor and a crisp finish. Very refreshing, good for drinking mass quantities.

Smells nice. Hard to mess up the aroma of a cider. Make it smell like apples. Easy. Taste is...well, sure, apples, but nothing else. No body, no depth of flavor. Just...apple juice. Very sweet juice.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Another Trader Joes "hey, why not, it is a buck" pick up. Granny Smiths are tasty. Cider is tasty. What could go wrong. Aaaaaannnddd. Even the aroma is dirty. Taste and palate are kinda there, almost. You can tell this is a tart-ish apple. Also, I am comparing this to homemade, champagne yeast fermented, home brew cider. But alas, this is crap. Points given where I could. It is, what it is. As is life.
