Fatehunter (2125) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
A nice white bubbly head formed, quickly gone. The body is a clear, golden color. Smells like Golden Delicious apples.. Crisp and clean taste. Semi-dry apple flavor. Lower carbonation and light body. A solid cider.

Most disappointing for a Samuel Smith brew. Tastes watered down, not at all what I expected.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a hazy straw color with a quickly vanishing head. Smells? Of apples no surprise. Tastes of apples with some tartness. Very watery and unexciting. Overall? There are many ciders way better than this.

*Old rating. Slightly sourish with a fruity and sweetish apple aroma. Nice and crisp, fresh but not too deep. Highly drinkable!

HuskerTan (1521) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle. A- White wine, dry, grapes. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, minimal fizzy head. T- Vanilla, honey, cotton candy, white wine, apples. P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet finish. O- I love Sam Smith and generally don’t care for ciders so had no idea where this was headed. The aroma was awful. Smelled like a cheap white wine. Surprisingly the taste was quite good. Light and full of flavors, not just apple. The taste saved this beer.

Travlr (20333) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Sample at AK BW fest 2016. Clear golden yellow color, still. Aroma of apple skins. Taste has light apple flesh, mostly dry finish. OK.

Draught at GABBF. Pours clear and still pale gold. Aroma is earthy apples, vanilla and honey. Flavor is sweet apple and honey with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

migwell (274) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2015
I’ve had a couple of ciders recently which I liked, but this one seems very ordinary and unexciting. I would surmise that ’organic’ means quite something with apples as they are one of the most heavily sprayed crops, with loads of pesticides used on them commercially. However, this cider is very plain across the board, aroma, looks, flavor, mouthfeel, and has zero complexity.

puboflyons (2959) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2015
From the bottle marked SE0501. Not sure what that means,. The pour is golden yellow with a fizzy white head and head and busy carbonation. The apple fruit is evident in the aroma but so is the corn and grain. Light, refreshing body but typical for a cider. Good apple quality to the taste with a clean finish. I don’t mind ciders because I find them to be refreshing. It is hard fir me tio rate them as beers though.

kajser27 (1195) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2015
Clear, golden colored, small diminishing white head. Aroma is of apple juice, some tart apples, light+ horse blanket. Taste is moderate sweet apples, tart apples and peel, just the right amount of moderate tartness, some funky barnyard notes. Semi dry finish, crisp. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Really good cider. (on tap, Earl of Lonsdale, London)

Marduk (5886) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear dark golden color. Brief bubbly white head. Acidic, leather, very sour apples in aroma. Sweetish, clove, apples, spicy in taste. Crisp mouthfeel. Little vinegary and farmhouse touch in aftertaste. Drinkable if nothing else is available.
