2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of apples, pear, and hay. Clear, deep golden hue. A touch of sweetness, tart, flavors of golden apples, prickly pear, and white grapes. Full bodied, smooth, and has a tart lingering finish. Pretty good tasting cider, a little on the sweet side, but the tartness is fresh and pleasant.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a light clear color with no head. Fresh green apples aroma. Very basic, standard apple cider for me. Drinks like there is no alcohol. Apple juice flavor throughout with a somewhat lingering tart flavor, which I can enjoy. I’ll drink this. For what it is, it’s good.

Had this bottle sitting in the fridge on deck for a while now, for some reason just never got to it. Finally poured it - clear gold. Aroma of Golden Delicious and Jonathans, although I am sure this wasn’t what was used. Big apple aroma though. Flavor is matching apple, some apple peel, and a slightly lingering residual sweetness. I would have preferred it a touch drier to my taste, but nicely done with good apple character shining through.

Wandering Aengus decided to put their name on cidres infinitely better than the anthem line, also expensive. This one is a sweeter one but definitely more dusty and rustic type notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is notes of Apple Jacks cereal, lemon/lime zest, hint of minerals. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation.
Rather soda poppy / non-serious (aroma is a little artificial smelling), but not repulsive in any way. Decent acidity/balance, but mostly on the sweet side.

Clear bright yellow. Aroma of applesauce. Tastes the same. Tastes like it’s been left outside/exposed. Was a gift that might’ve been overaged.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear royal golden with a few escaping small bubbles and just the tiniest white ring around the glass that disappears. Nose involves some sweet apple flesh and tart apple skin, along with a fairly clean but dusty yeast and an underlying spice note. Somewhat sweet flavor, but much more tart, nearly intensely so. Medium bodied, drying and puckering tart, softly carbed with a lasting tart yeasty finish. Quite enjoyable, nice character, definitely not very sweet which works for me. Bottled 7-12-12, 6.9% ABV.

Bottle. Clear pour, light aroma, medium carbonation. Taste is sweet apple, finishes with some tart flavor. Nice, but fairly basic, and not one I would try again.

Clear golden pour with little to no head. Aroma is crisp, clean apple, some caramel, and honey. Light yeast notes and mildly sweet. Good sweetness to the flavor and a decent apple character. Hints of caramel and honey, a touch of yeast, and maybe some grass. Subtle tartness on the finish.

Bottle. Sweet clean ripe apple aroma. Clear deep gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet, slightly tart apple flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Pretty straightforward, although not exciting cider.
