3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light gold with minimal head. Aroma of fresh apples and a little bready yeast. Taste is light tart. Green apples with a little grape skin. Light bodied with a slightly sticky yet watery texture. Fizzy carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Would probably be rated higher if it didnt have the stella name attached.

From a bottle in a cup. Very sweet and slightly dry. Pretty fizzy and lively. Too cloyingly sweet for my taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Pours an amber color with no head on it. Smell is a little sweet and reminds me a lot of apple candy, rather than an apple itself. Taste is slightly sweet, and only slight bits of apple come through. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight rubbery scent. A light and dry cider, with some MacIntosh flavor. A pretty good cider - it is better than Stella’s beer. I actually have begun buying a fair amount of this stuff, since it retails for a bargain price at a local store. It is probably healthier than cheap beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
~6oz on tap at Flipdaddy’s on Wooster. Clear golden color. Minimal head. Just a couple CO2 bubbles. Apple cider in the nose, and light spice. Some nutmeg, cinnamon. Light to medium body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Sort of soft, lightly sharp, but not a bad texture. Lightly sticky finish, moderate sweet taste, sort of tart. Not terrible, but pretty much on par with what I expected from a macro cider. The worst part of this is probably that I had to pay $3.50 for a "taste" (not factored into the score). Thanks, Flipdaddy’s...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate aroma of sweet apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet apple flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Has a decent apple smell. A taste of apple upfront followed by a touch of staleness . Another cider made from concentrate. Womp womp

this is a nice clean and crisp cider with a slight tartness. its very non-threatening that would work well on a hot summer day or with nice spices.

The appearance is golden with is small head. The aroma is yeasty and fruity and not unlike beer. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall it’s good.
