Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2009
This is absolutely one of the best ciders Iíve ever had. It is unusually bweautiful for a cider, golden with a very large white head steadily dissipatin to a thin,. lasting head and elaving even a few hints of lace. Most ciders have only a thin, airy head and, regardless of the head size, no head retention whatsoever, much less lace. The aroma is full, ripe green apples. The taste is full and crisp. It has ripe green apples, slightly tart, along with ripe sweet red apples. Itís not too sweet and not too dry, with great balance and lasting flavur. A light yeatsy character builds to the finish, really adding to the apple in the lng aftertaste. It has unusually good complexity for a cider.

Apple aroma, with a floral hint. Pours almost yellow with a moderate head that dissipates decently quick. Very smooth going down, would be easy to drink a few of these. Sits on the tongue lightly, mostly with that same floral aftertaste noted in the aroma. All in all an easy, above average 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 (1643) - 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 donít 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.

Sample at AK BW fest 2016. Clear golden yellow color, still. Aroma of apple skins. Taste has light apple flesh, mostly dry finish. OK.

migwell (276) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Iíve had a couple of ciders recently which I liked, but this one seems very ordinary and unexciting. I would surmise that íorganicí 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.

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 donít mind ciders because I find them to be refreshing. It is hard fir me tio rate them as beers though.
