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, it’s 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 ’beer’ (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. Cheers!

very good cider..sour as the name granny smith would make you expect a bit low on carbonation- I would prefer more carbonation a good tangy sour apple cider..I will keep buying this one..sessionable I like sour beers so this is something to throw into a shopping trip as a changeup I am searching for a good sour lacto cider that can match a flanders this is ok

Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour with no head. Mild tart apple, somewhat watery and subdued. Not bad, but not very good either.

stravale (2370) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Longford [181114]
Extremely light straw green, thin white head
Aroma of sugar, vague apple
Taste of very soft apple juice, sugars
Palate - Medium carb, thin body, rather sweet. Finish - more apple juice in the afters which is quite juicy, flavour of the apple is quite nice but simple
Overall - The apple flavour build up with the drinking, more flavour in the finish. Would drink this over Bulmers any day.

12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear pale yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have tangy apple juice somewhat in line with the more tart Granny Smith apples, still a big sweet component comes through. I am just not a fan of ciders.

Appearance: pours with no head, beer is very clear very light gold almost a yellow color Aroma: faint green apple Taste: tangy, green apple, not super sweet but some sweetness, tang Palate: lively carbonation, minimal apple aftertaste, leaves mouth dry, Overall: I feel like this is a more subtle cider, not as much from the apple

355ml from John Walsh Spar, 5% Nice sweet granny smith apple aroma. Appearancd is a nice white wine very pale yellow white. Taste is fruit and zesty with a dry slightly bitter finish that is long lasting. There is actually a nice amount of carbonation on the tongue. Overall one of the best in tbe woodchuck range as they let the apples do the talking here but letting the taste come out and not smothering it with sugar. It is still a bland cider and could be made more exciting.

CelticBrew (906) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle blonde in color, carbonated appearance, with an apple juice, rather than apple cider, taste. Refreshing taste of apple, nicely balanced, easy on the palate, and the right amount of carbonation. Easy drinking, nice change up from beer, even though not my style.

"Nice tartness to this one, as expected. Not much in the way of complexity, as per the style, but a nice, refreshing crisp sweet and tart cider with a bit of a bite."

Bottle. Clear pale straw body with a minimal fizzy head that vanished completely. The nose is slightly tart with grannie smith apple. The flavor is just about what you’d expect, it tastes like chomping on a grannie smith apple. A little tart up front, finishes on the sweeter side. Completely filtered with fizzy carbonation and a finish that lingers more than most Woodchuck offerings. Pretty decent if you’re looking to have a grannie smith apple, but don’t want the effort of chewing.
