This is the first cider I have rated, so I don’t have much reference. This thing was just found aging for a few years, more accidently aged, or misplaced, but still really nice flavor. Aroma is lightly spicy, more apple and less alcohol. The flavor on this was well mixed together, very smooth. Rating this against beer is tough, but i guess i would rather rate this brew better than some shitty macros, but I would never take this over a craft brew.

Definitely taste the "unfermented apple juice" flavor that supposedly composes 20% of this. Almost a cherry undertone. Mix of sweet and dry. Takeable, but unremarkable. Maybe give me something I can remember next time. On the flip side, it didn’t scorch my throat like dry ciders sometimes do.

Appears like a carbonated apple juice. Fresh apple nose. Nice tart flavor with a bitter finish. Good cider.

Pale and effervescent, smells like cheap wine, reminded me of Boones Farm. But really and truly not bad in the taste, a bitter aftertaste though.

Cider. Whoohoo. Liked it more than I expected, but it's still hard cider and not really beer. Nose is very apple, flavor is very apple (it's an apple cider, duh). Also has a sugary sweetness. Fizzed, a bit spritzer-like. Surprised I actualy sorta liked it, didn't at all expect to.

Clear apple juice body. Aroma is sweet apple. Taste is of lightly fizzy apple juice. Bleah -- I don't need spiked carbonated apple juice -- I'll just stick with the apple juice.
