Contains added brown sugar and molasses. Cloying sweet. Disgusting and undrinkable.

Dark wood-amber with a decent head for a cider. Apple nose that veers towards jolly rangerland. Sweet and candy-apple flavor. Jolly-ranger finish. Not bad, but rather artificial tasting.

Clear amber/brown with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates to a small ring. Aroma of ripe apples, chardonnay wine and light caramel. Flavor of sweet baked apples and then finishes a bit dry and tart. Medium to light body with light carbonation and a dry finish. This is nice, not overly sweet and quite drinkable.

Wonderful. SMOOTH as butter on the palate. Carbonation is light and aids in the smoothness. Pours a wonderfully clear brown with a thin head. Very drinkable, and surprisingly sweet given its advertisement as a dry cider. There are much drier ciders out there, for sure. Like nothing I’ve had before.

Bottle from total wine Chantilly. Pours brown with a note of molasses to go along with the apple. I can’t say this is the most aesthetically pleasing liquid I’ve ever consumed. A bit dry on the tongue with a slight brown sugar note. Eh!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m not normally a cider drinker but I really like this one. It’s much darker than I would have anticipated, and pours with no head. It’s dry for a cider, so it doesn’t have that sickeningly sweet taste that some ciders do. Great find...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours burnt sienna with fizzy khaki head. This is by far the darkest brown cider I have ever poured. Nose is sweet apples and cinnamon, earthy brown sugar, honey. Very complex nose. Tastes of apple, earthy brown sugar, molasses, with a complex, rather hefty palate and a delicious finish. This one is outstanding.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I couldn’t wait to taste this considering how high it is rated compared to other american ciders. Yes, it does pour rather dark, surprizingly dark for a cider. Dark iced tea brown. Aroma is nice mild and friendly apple. Goes down pretty easy and as a liker of cider,this is pretty darn good. Not overly sweet but you can tell there is still unfermetned sugar in there. A little preservative in the flavor. Surprizingly a little watery too. Easy goin and friendly, can live wit it. Decent amount of sizzle hides what alky there is rather well. Finish is fine, no ill effects. Good overall rating experience. Perhaps a little less alky pop flavors than other american ciders.

Bottle. Dark clear ruby brown, small bright tan head that settles to an edge. Aroma of pear, tangerine, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste is lemon, apple chunks, light spice. Very nice.
