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.

This is a very generic cider with a pale amber appearance. Aroma is sweet apple. Flavor is like nose plus the carbonic tang and not much else. Finish is fairly short and like flavor. Boring.

poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Has a fairly crisp flavor but is very sweet. Not a bad cider.

The measuring stick by which ciders should be compared. By that I mean, a true baseline-- aroma is a champagne-like apple. Headless pour, with a middle-of-the-road sweetness that is just sweet enough to not overwhelm. A bit sticky on the palate, almost syrupy. Not too sharp. A hint of tartness on the backend.

Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Golden colour, no head. aroma is apple, some sweetness, mild nectar and wood. Flavour is apples, some mild green apple skins as well as quite sugary notes. Flavour is similar. A bit too sugary, but while it was fridge cold it was atleast refreshing.

Vestlake (270) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 17, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours apple juice color. Aroma and taste are both apple juice. Good if you’re in the mood for cider.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
355ml bottle @ ALB bar, Shrewsbury. Not sure if this was a seperate entry, as it’s from a bottle, but can’t be bothered entering a new one. Pours fairly clear gold, white bubbly head. Sweet apple aroma. Taste is smooth, slick with a syrupy sweet cider character. Pleasant, easy-drinking. Decent.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
pours hazy very light golden without a head, shy bubbles. dusty melamined apples, mid-sweet and mid-tart apples, pears - slightly perfumey; few but present rotten fruit notes, yeast - not quite champagne as advertised. light carbonation - could be brighter; light body; semi-sweet and very lightly tart fruity finish. nod bad or anything. just an honest entry level cider.
