This is the best of the Woodchuck line and Iíve tried them all. Granny Smith is too tart, Dry is too dry and Pear is Pear. Amber has got a good level of sweetness and thatís how it should be. Ciders arenít beers despite the fact theyíre made in a similar way, and they should have some sweetness.

This isnít bad. I was drinking it with Sam Adams Cherry Wheat and Newcastle, so it was the tastiest of the lot. Kind of sweet, but pretty good.

Clear straw color with minimal head. Aroma of apple, vinegar, and chablis wine. Finish has a slight metallic flavor that lingers and takes away some of the pleasent sweetness. Some champagne characteristics that make me believe they may use a wine or champagne yeast stain. Not beer, but not bad. Wouldnít mind trying to mull this one some time.

Cider just isnít my cup oí tea. I guess this might be nice during the holidays but just to sit, sip & savor. Not for me. I guess it has a niche out there somewhere.

I donít know that I call this a beer, but whatever. Itís a good cider. Very fruity, very light, and very sweet. Goes over well with the ladies as well. Donít drink too much of these, so I donít have too much of a comparrison. I still like it.

Not very familiar with ciders, but this one had a nice rich apple/champagne scent that could become overpowering, looks like a pilsner with a very white fizzing head. Strong ripe apple taste, mild aftertaste.
