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, 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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 I’m starting to understand ciders don’t 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 isn’t anything overbearing.
Overall, decent cider, nothing over the top and nothing bad.
