Colorado Cider Radl’ Ah
Clear apple-straw hue with no head, even when poured with vigor. Nice aroma with a clean crisp apple juice tone and a light touch of lemongrass. Crisp flavor of the same. Light lemonrassy flavor with clean and crisp apple flavors, and finishes with a wee touch of beeswax...lemon tinged beeswax.

Colorado Cider Glider Cider
Blackbelly Market, 11/23/15. Clear pour. Fairly heavy sweet apple aroma and flavor. Not much in here to balance it out. I guess there’s a hint of tartness, but I would have preferred more, because it was still too sweet. Too much so for my preference in the style.

Colorado Cider Glider Cider - Dry
Bottle. Pale pear-pulp-white with perfect clarity. Aroma’s almost like a Chardonnay -- white grape, a little tartness, lime. Acidity in the flavor is pronounced, following pear and lingering long after the dry finish. A little one-note for my tastes.

Bottle. Pale dandelion and perfect clarity. Aroma: mint, black peppercorns, Fuji apple, a bit of mulled character. The flavor is quite unique -- a melange of wintergreen and cilantro, green apple skins, white grape and smooth red apple. Fairly dry, with lingering herbal quality. Really complex, tasty stuff.

Colorado Cider Glider Cider
Bottle. Extremely pale in hue, the color of pear pulp. Perfect clarity. Aroma gives off notes of Fuji apples; flavor has soft sweetness and just a bit of acidity. Not a ton of complexity here, but good balance and drinkability.

Colorado Cider Glider Cider - Dry
On tap at Compass Ciders. Pale, clear, almost no color in appearance with a touch of active carbonation. Notes of apple, pear and champagne in the nose. The flavor is similar, a bit vinous with notes of white wine and a light dry finish. Light bodied and easy to drink, but pretty boring overall.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Pale white gold and clear appearance with a ring of white foam. Aroma of apples, light green hops, mild vanilla and pears. Similar flavor, mild apple juice sweetness with a touch of bitterness and a light dry finish. Light, pretty clean and easy to drink.

Colorado Cider Pioneer Series - Newtown Pippin
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is light notes of lemon cleaning product, ammonia, plastic, apple skin. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft/flat carbonation, lightly astringent. CO Cider sadly still seems unable to create a clean product...as with Crispin’s ciders, this one has obvious ammonia taint, along with other chemical notes, and precious little of anything enjoyable in the nose (barely even any apple). Unsurprisingly dirty aftertaste and a very light and watery mouthfeel. Almost no color. Imagine mixing 50 parts water, one part apple juice, and a little spritz of ammonia...then toss in some chunks of a plastic baggie and stir...that’s kinda the impression this gives. And no, I’m not exaggerating...I wish I was.

Clear very light golden with a nose of honeycrisp apples and light tartness. Nice fruity apple tone without being cloy, with a quiet semi dry finish. Just really clean and quaffable. No nonsense.

Colorado Cider Uvana
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is very light yellow (almost colorless). Aroma is very light notes of melon rind, vanilla, plastic, ammonia. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is trace sweetness, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. About as close to water as a cider gets. Virtually no color or aroma. About all it has in the mouth is some acid and astringency. The word "delicate" in the description is putting it very mildly. Like diluted lemon juice with a bit of ammonia and plastic added.

Colorado Cider Cherry Glider Cider
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, light pink, fully diminishing. Body is light pink. Aroma is light notes of apple juice, cranberry, rubber, ammonia. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately to heavily astringent. Another quality CO Cider product. Not much aroma but it features similar flaws that some of their other ciders offer. Sweet, fizzy, and very astringent in the mouth.

Colorado Cider Glider Cider - Dry
This cider is not for everyone. If you like the mass produced, overly sweet ciders that dominate the mass market, stay clear of this one. But if you like a dry cider, with just a hint of sweetness, followed by a dry, apple flavored champagne taste, try it.

Typical cider here nothing special. Pours a lite red color with no head and very little carbonation. Very lite cherry flavor and a middle of the road cider. Not that special.

Crystal clear with a faint straw hue. Aroma is very faint but smells a little like green grape skin. Flavor is nice and mild with a dry and tart green grape fleshiness along with mild and calming apple (neither tart or sweet), leading to a bubbly champagne like finish with a little more apple. Not bad.
