One of my fave hard ciders of all time. If you like the flavor of granny smith apples, then you won't be disappointed with this one. Never has a head, but never needs one. Easy to drink and actually refreshing.

12 oz. green stubbie bottle. Twist off cap. I hate twist offs. Anyway, it poured out a very pale golden yellow color, Almost a straw color. Not much head, but left a small ring of foam around the edges of the glass. Aromas are of ripe Granny Smith apples, Jolly Rancher Apple candy, slight yeastiness, tart fresh pressed cider aromas abound. Tastes like a liquid apple. Very sweet at first, then slightly yeasty, then the tartness hits you. Not offensively so, but just enough to cut the sweetness. Slight yeast bite in the finish. A top notch cider in my book.

A great tart tasting cider. As if you were crunching into a crisp granny smith apple. Nicely carbonated, I believe their best product.

It’s a great drink when you are in the mood for a light flavor. It’s very crisp and a bit sour.

This ranks very high on my cider list, as I’m more new to ciders I don’t have a huge comparison. I find this cider to be fairly smooth, not too acidic, but the sourness from the granny smith balances nicely against the sweetness. I find the yeast that has been used to ferment this cider leaves a really nice appely residue to the cider...it is not dry. It is also not overly alcoholic. Just a really nice blend for a cider. At this point, my favorite commercial cider, but I’m still getting into these.

Had at Beer Fest and after sampling lots of stouts and nut browns this was a welcome taste. Very appley aroma, thin head to no head, thin kind of watery palate. Very flavorful
