Aroma of tart apples..maybe a little candy sugar
Taste is quite tart ..i like this little sweet to begin with then it gets more tart until at the end it is sour.Like this
OK mouthfeel it is a dry cider but i have had drier.
OK drink..liked the tartness of this one EMT (2) - Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2012 does not count
slight vinegar taste at first takes away from the smoothness, but not a bad for a dry cider. much better than others i have tasted, a decent brew. wlajwl (7211) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Aroma is mushy/musty apples and a slight hint of spice. The flavor is apples, a hint of tart fruit and a long and sour finish. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pour looks like Chardonnay, very light whitish yellow, clear appearance with a bubbly head that is gone in no time. A touch spicy, dull apple core, slightly grassy, herbal aroma that isn’t really all that interesting. Tangy, lightly tart but fairly sweet apple juicy, light pear, sugary, a touch herbal flavor. Eh, not horrible but not super good either.

Clear yellow with tiny white head. Aroma of apples and white wine. Taste is basically the same. Really dry. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2012
light golden with minimal head. one of the dryest ciders i’ve ever had. very wine-like. i wouldn’t drink this all the time, but it’s pleasantly unique. krisolson (57) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2012
This is a really good beer. Really easy to drink. Smooth flavor and nice after taste. Ace really does taste like champagne and like champagne you only want to have 1 or 2. Brigadier (3780) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2012
12 ounce bottle
I can’t put my finger on it but I am beginning to think ciders are not a style I like very much. While this one is not bad I just feel that I would rather be drinking an IPA, Belgian, or other lighter weight beer. Even so thanks to whomever sent it my way.
Aroma / Appearance - The transparent body and stark white head are both fairly predictable for a cider. Tart sour apples hit the senses with a mission. It smells like sticking your nose into a plate full of warm applesauce.
Flavor / Palate - Tart and ripe Granny Smith apples are the primary focus. A dry finish has vinous aspects but after a few sips I find myself thinking about what to open next. Despite being a refreshing option for a long holiday weekend I don’t think I’ll be seeking out more ciders any time soon.
