4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s difficult for me to rate cider. Most of it tastes very similar to me. This has an aroma of good white wine. Beautiful amber with a nice dry apple flavor. Light carbonation quenches thirst yet makes for easy slamming. My only complaint with "hard" cider is, it’s usually not that "hard". 5% is the same as beer. I’d like to see a 10, or even 20 percent cider. This is very good, but wayyyyyyy over priced.

Good carbonation and aroma seen upon pouring. Dry on palate that is balanced nicely with the sweetness. Overall very drinkable and enjoyable medium cider.

12oz bottle. a golden pour, not a lot going on. Very syrupy nose, faint pear, a lot of apple obviously. sweeter than most ciders, not a lot of mouthfeel. honey is prominent. lightly bitter older apple finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear light amber color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, mild spices, a light tang, barely more interesting than a basic cider.

355ml bottle, 5% amber colour, bourbon aroma and over ripe apples, no carbonation. Flat on the tongue with a hint of bourbon, molasses taste, very sweet, almost too much. It does havd a taste of more but I’m not sure how many Id have together.

"A little on the sweet side, but I like the dryness in the finish...does that count as body or flavor? Not a standout, but i’d drink again, and fall is the time for this stuff."

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
355ml bottle. Darker amber pour compared to most cidres. Smell is apples, slight rotten apple. Flavor is super sweet, some non-apple fruit flavor, back sweetened with caramalized sugar as opposed to regular sugar/corn syrup. So much for it calling itself a "dry cider". Another bad woodchuck cidre.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle. Aroma is apples and caramel. Pours very dark for a cider, more orange than the other offerings from Woodchuck that i’ve had. Tase is caramel, apple, molasses, with hints of vanilla. Fuller bodied and thicker texture than most of Woodchuck’s other offerings. Overall I’d say this is a pretty good cider that’s hard to go wrong with.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty good cider. It is less sweet than the Amber cider with a more complex flavor. The cider looks great, but a look at the label shows caramel coloring. I try to ignore that and enjoy the taste and aroma. It pours a light reddish brown with a small ring head. It tastes sweet at first with a sour finish. Feels more like a properly aged cider than the typical American ciders.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. There was barely any difference between the two.
The appearance was a slight clear amber color with a fizzy head.
The smell had sweet apples with a slight brown sugar sort of effect going on.
The taste was pretty much the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. I would say this was pretty sessionable. The carbonation was there , slightly sharp but not overbearing.
Overall, decent cider, probably wouldn’t go out of my way for it again.

Draft at Moriartys. Crystal clear orange gold pour. No head. Nicely tart. Big apples. Sweet but has a mostly dry finish. Better cider than most.
