I have a really hard time rating cider. It all tastes very similar to me. My biggest complaint is that "hard" cider isn’t really all that hard. 5% is the same as beer. I’d like to see a 10 or even 20% cider. This stuff looks good with it’s deep, dark amber hue and apply aroma. Good apple taste with no hint of alcohol. It would be quite easy to drink too much of this without ever being aware that it was alcoholic. Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy over priced, though.

12oz bottle. Not bad, not great either. Aroma is mainly of apples. Appearance is a golden yellow with a lacy head. Taste is primarily apples and a bit of yeast, pretty sweet. Medium bodied, kinda juice like almost. Overall it’s a pretty easy drinking cider and a good easily accesible starting point into the world of cider.

This is the only cider I drink (except other specific Woodchuck varieties). This doesn’t have the bad aftertaste of Angry Orchard, or is missing the true apple flavor like Crispin. This beer, although slightly sweet, is what "hard cider" is meant to be. Crisp, nice apple flavor, and refreshing.

I’ve tried a lot of cider beer that is out there and Woodchuck Amber is by far my favorite. It’s not too dry and is full flavored

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: golden, no head and light carbonation. Apples, yeasty, funky. Almost Brett like. Off dry to sweet. Rich and fresh. Bright long palate. Loads of flavour. Not extreme.

pours a amber color - smells like a tart red apple - taste like a red apple with a little zest and kick and refreshing - nothing fancy here - it’s one of my favorite everyday ciders

This cider pours dark gold and has a strong apple aroma. The taste is the same as the aroma with a addition of crisp and tart flavors.

Appears clear, slightly darker and redder than bud light. Little to no head on pour, well carbonated. Aroma of red apple and cinnamon. Taste is the same but more watery.

Amber color with almost no head. Taste like apple juice with a light kick. Nothing real special here.
