This is not bad but not exceptional. Why? Because it is weak. The color and scent is right, but the taste is just watery. Now it is a clean drink, and not objectionable in any way but I wanted to taste it more. What was hinted at was very good.

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.

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.

(Bottle) This isn’t beer and it doesn’t even remotely resemble beer so I’m not sure why it’s on this site, but I’m rating it nonetheless. Wow...this one is quite something. Tastes more like wine than anything else. There is very little sugar or sweetness, and there’s a sort of thin bite like in a dry white wine. Some complexity in the aroma. I really like this one, in spite of the fact that I think the "regular" cider made by this company is quite poor.

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

12 oz bottle from trader Joes; Nose of tart apples, just like the Granny Smiths wy wife uses for her homemade apple pie. Wish i had a piece to eat with this. Very pale gold with medium sized bubbles; Good tart cider with the flavor of Granny Smith apples! Excellent!

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.

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.

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.

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.
