3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a very unique beverage. I am not really sure what to compare it to? It was definitely good, but new to me.
Appearance: The most clear beverage I have reviewed to date. Perrier clear; that is, itís barely tinted apple juice color. Completely transparent.
Smell: It has a nice granny smith apple aroma, that is sweet and fructose sugary, with a hint of tartness. Very gentle, sweet juice like smell.
Taste & Mouthfeel: A nice, crisp, tart appley taste and that is clean and refreshing. Juicy and spritzy; this smooth cool feel in the mouth is very drinkable. The taste is mild and easy, so it goes down so nicely.
Drinkability: This is not what I would think of when I want a íbeerí (if you could even call this beer). It is an alcoholic Granny Smith Apple Cider and a very good one, as long as that is what you want.
Hope this is helpful.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear light straw pour. No head. Tastes and smells like a Granny Smith apple. Fizzy. Tart enough but sweetens in the finish.

12oz bottle. Clear pale straw colour. Flavors are tart green apples, apple skin and sugar. Pretty straightforward. Light body, fizzy carbonation, slick texture. OK.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass.
The appearance was the same in both as there was a slight hazy orange to yellow color with a fast rising carbonation rolling into a quickly dissipating white bubbly head. Lacing, no way, not there, ah but Iím starting to understand ciders donít do lacing. Okay, well, no big deal, I guess.
The smell was slightly tart but also a decent sweet apple. Was there some floral-ness in there? It seemed so to me.
The taste was mainly tart and sweet, combined pretty good.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light and could be construed as fairly sessionable. The normal harshness from a cider is there but just there and isnít anything overbearing.
Overall, decent cider, nothing over the top and nothing bad.

Bottle pour. Clear pale yellow color. Smells like a green jolly rancher. Sweet taste with a tart aftertaste.

Was pretty good! The only thing that didnít make it a 4 for me is that i just wish there was a little more sour notes since its granny smith.

This hard cider is not as good as I thought it was going to be. I think that this is the worst hard cider on the market.

Bottle. Pale straw colored, looks like white wine other than the thin white ring atop. Green apple, white grape, and champagne. Taste is dry with a lighter tartness. Body is lighter with a sticky feel.

Smells like a jolly rancher green apple. Appears slightly yellow. Well carbonated. Dry, light cider apple flavor compared to other woodchuck.

Yay for party cider. 12oz bottle in a taster. Dust, apple, and champagne yeast. Sweet but refreshing. Crisp I guess. Not bad.

Bottle on st Pattys day. Not much aroma, some sweetness detectable. Taste is sweet, apples and some tart notes. Somewhat dry finishing. High carbonation. Not my favorite.
