Bottle. Lighter clear color, some green apple, both worse and better than the regular Newton Folly--better bite and distinctly Granny Smith, but also a bit more crass and artificial. Still, while no match for proper English cider, this is perfectly drinkable as hard cider.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear straw, very pale, lethargic carbonation. graphite and green apple nose, little plastic-y. Sweet, mostly clean finish, there’s apple flavor, but not much character. Very crisp.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clear almost perfectly clear with just a touch of gold to differentiate from water pour with some carbonation. Apple flavor undertones with a bit of acidic bite. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white ring. Sparkly, tart apple aroma, with a hint of yeast. Taste is tart and sweet apples. Lingering tartness. Nice carbonation and very refreshing.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottle] Pours a nearly clear color with low carbonation. Tastes of tart apple juice. Sour finish and light mouthfeel. Rather bland. This is not a very good cider.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear with carbonation. Aroma of apples and spice, flavor of apples with a bit of tart, reminded me of a sour apple jolly rancher. Good finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Just like the other draft, pretty sure there is no difference. Sweet and cider like, not much else.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks light like the inside of an apple. Flavor is sweeter than the other and more apply. Finish is much sweeter and a little more coating, but quite good, and I think, better overall.
