This one is quite a bit sweeter than the Woodchuck Granny Smith cider, but it has kind of a nice brown sugar flavor that makes up for a little excess sweetness. It is more like a honey-gold color than amber, not very bubbly which is fine with me. It’s perfectly fine for the average cider drinker, but a bit too sweet for my taste and too middle of the road. Will probably not revisit.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Musty apple aroma with with some wood as well on the nose. Taste is all apples. A little sweet but not too much so. Not a bad mainstream cider.

Bottle@stones. Coppery amber, clear. Red apples, zesty fresh. Sweet med light bodied. Some seedyness, not much. Sweet red, easy drink. A very easy, slight kiddy drink. Really clean. Doesnt feel artificial though.

THIS BEERS IS OK CEDDAR I LIKE TO DRINK WOODCHUK. TASTES GOOD/NOT TO SWEET. I DONT’ LIKE FRUIT BEERS BUTT THIS ONE IS GOOD BECAUSE THE FRUIT FLAVER ISNT’ SO STRONG. JUST A LITTLE APPEL FLAVER? WHEN I GO TO A PLASE WHAT DOSE NOT HAVE PLINY (MY BEST FAVERITE BEER) LIKE THE BOWLING ALLY OR ELKS-LOG OR GLOW IN THE DARK BLACK LITE ROLERBLADEING THEN I CAN AT LEAST DRINK CEDDAR.

12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear pale yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apple juice with a mold tart character, not much else. Many non alcoholic ciders have better flavor.

Liamrua (49) - Waterford, IRELAND - OCT 12, 2014
355ml bottle 5% aroma of ripe apples with a toffee caramel finish, very little carbonation and amber colour. Taste is of ripe apples, extremely sweet with a kick of spice and bourbon type flavour. Slight carbonation on the tongue. Overall I consider tgere has been far too much sugar added to consider this a craft cider.

A cider with a bit of a bite. Strong apple taste, but goes down smooth. Substantially better from a tap than a bottle.

355ml bottle. Cidre pour, definite apple juicy cidre, definite soda notes, sweet and unappealing.

"I like the lively yet refined feel the yeast gives this one, otherwise a pretty standard cider. Smells and tastes of musty apples. A little on the sweet side, but nice overall..."
