2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured clear, like a less carbonated club soda. My friend commented that it looked like water. It’s hard to tell if the light bulbs were what gave it a slight tint of pale pale pale yellow color or if it was really brewed like that. Alcohol is completely hidden. Flavor is, well a bit tart, granny smith like, but it’s mostly like one of those zero-calorie flavor waters you can get. Completely inoffensive, so it has at least one thing going for it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours crystal clear. I don’t know how they did it but this cider looks exactly like water. There is no color to it. No head, hardly any bubbles, water like appearance. Aroma is sort of there, it smells maybe like white grape juice but less aromatic if that’s possible. Taste is like a bad light white wine. Maybe the most boring cider ever.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours nearly completely colorless, just a bit of a golden touch. A few bubbles. Tart Granny Smith apple aroma. Granny Smith flavor as well, tart and a bit sugary, with a funky finish. Not my favorite flavors, but it’s pretty easy to drink.

Pale sickly yellow tinted body with no head. Granny Smith apples and a little bit of Band Aids in the nose. There is also is some wood. The taste is a little tart with some notes of jelly sweetness. A little bit of wood comes out in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Purchased from Trader Joe’s as part of a mix & match 6 pack, enjoyed on a Thursday night the week before the holidays. This is unbelievably clear, I can practically watch TV through this thing. Aroma of sugar and apples. Taste is extremely sweet, definitely champagne like, very bubbly, hint of apple in there as well. Not too much into it, tastes like the other Newton’s Folly I had.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a pale near transparent hint of peach body. Grain and apple tones, lingering salt and dry gritty sweetness. Waxy with a hint of fruit. Poor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours clear with a slight yellow to green shade. Aroma is of some apple and Champaign. Medium body, medium carbonation. Medium sweetness and acidity. Reminds me of semi-sweet white wine.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Non-musty pear and rose aroma, with shitty overtones. Clear very light green. Shitty acidic flavor. Barely palatable. Granny Smith is just the wrong variety of apple for cidering. This one is especially bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. It’s such a light pale yellow it almost looks clear. Head disappeared almost immediately. Tiny white lace. Nose is like apples rolled in powdered sugar. Taste is big tart apples, followed by flat smack of yeast. About 10 seconds after that theres a little pungent salivator. The first taste makes my eyes twinge like eating sour candy. Funny long lingering aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost clear, slight salmon hue, with fine bubbles / Sweet, candied citrus nose / Light body, gentle acidity and carbonation, with good, dry finish / Flavors of granny smith apples and apple candy / While lacking the fermented punch of the best, this one is stylish, and clean and very enjoyable.
