fizzy apple juice. does this have alcohol? I’d take a cider jack over this any day.

Crystal clear golden orange in color with a small white head. Aroma is of appl, light band-aid, and a hint of wet leaves and earth. Taste is of apple and water.

Pours a pale yellowish and clear color with a white head that disappears rather quickly. Smell i s a mix of yeast and fresh dough along with apple juice. Taste is similar to the smell with a doughy apple juice flavor. Thin body with very light carbonation. The yeastiness makes it taste goopy, and dirty, and doesn’t mix well with the crisp apple flavor. Just tastes thin, dirty and just isn’t that enjoyable.

Pours gold and fizzy. Smells of sweet apples. Tastes of sweet apples. One dimensional and boring.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle... Poured a pale straw hue with a white head. Fresh aroma of biscuits and apples. This was one of the better hard ciders I have had. Fizzy palate with a nice tartness created by the apple flavors which lasted into the finish. Also a touch of yeast in the finish too.

troopie (2295) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle. Poured golden yellow with no head and many bubbles. Aroma of ripe apples. Much apple in the flavour with a bit of alcohol bite, but only a bit. Appley finish. I like this, but wouldn’t want to spend a session drinking it.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2009
500ml bottle. My first cider reviewed. Clear filtered looking orange tan color. Sweet apple aroma. Well carbonated, the taste is of bitter apple and a lemony white wine. Pretty enjoyable, but I think the alcohol is a touch overstated for it’s strength.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of Swalden 28) Pours a clear yellow body with a spare egg-white head. Aroma of apple, light chardonnay grapes, and earthiness. Flavor of apples and light vinegar.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Sampled at the Sam Smith tasting at Blacklick Wine and Spirits on 2.5.09. Pours a clear yellow with a thin head. Carbonated to the point that it resembles champagne. Smells like apple juice and white wine. Tastes about the same. Tart up front and sweet on the finish. Not bad for a cider. Not quite as good as Dickens Cider, but then again nothing is.
