KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a straw like yellow with a very small white fizzy head that disappeared in a matter of seconds and had no lacing. The aroma was overwhelming with a strong scent of vinegar and a mild green apple. It tasted sweet and acetic with a stong vinegar presence from start to finish and had a slight apple flavor at the end. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall NOT GOOD at all. I normally don’t drink Cider. Although I thought being made by Samuel Smith’s it might be good, guess I was wrong

tfontana (696) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is apple, champagne. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with nice sparkle, minimal white fizzy head. Taste is balance of light sweet and tart. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, initial burst of fizzy carbonation but then soft, and dry finish. Overall, a nice, light change of pace from beer.

Intricate08 (39) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2016
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.

Erzengel (7758) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
*Old rating. Slightly sourish with a fruity and sweetish apple aroma. Nice and crisp, fresh but not too deep. Highly drinkable!

HuskerTan (1700) - 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 (21440) - Charlotte, North Carolina, 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.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 23, 2016
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 (277) - 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.
