Just a little sweetness but has a weird mouth feel. Pours goldyellow with a tiny head from tap. Easy to finish

Pours into the glass a clear yellow-golden hue, with lots of fizzy carbonation that doesnt lead to a lasting head, nor retention of lace of which to speak. The nose is definitively of Granny Smith apples, some Golden Delicious intermingled as well. Flavors are of semi-ripened aforementioned apples, sour and acidic with a light Red Delicious apple sweetness that doesnt make the offering cloying, all the while keeping it in check as "semi-sweet". It has a medium body and juicy mouthfeel, with a semi-zesty palate, attributed to the active carbonation at work. It falls on the drier side, Champagne-like, of the "semi-sweet" character, but as Champagne aged in stainless steel, rather than oak barrels. The pull is nice and makes for a wonderful aperitif. As for a hard cider, this is actually very vinous and true to description. Quite decent.

Good strong dry cider, with a champagne like bite to it. Easy to drink, but nothing about it to set it apart from the next strong pale cider.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The cider is a clear golden yellow with tons of carbonated bubbles. Has a smooth flavor with a dry finish.

I love this cider, but its not for everyones taste. Extremely dry and tart with not much aroma. But Im always looking for the driest, lowest carb/sugar ciders that I can find. So I can still enjoy alcohol while living a lower carb-gluten free lifestyle. Cider styles vary incredibly, so just depends what you like.

MrBeerFanatic (1027) - Friona, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Faint yellow without a head light carbonation. Aromas tart apple candy and slightly earthy. Flavors light tart apple cider and slightly woody. Lightly sour and medium sweet. Not to bad just very one-dimensional and can get boring after a while.

Intricate08 (47) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Like the description, this is a very champagne-like cider. Aroma has floral, lemon, and hints of spice. Light yellow with minimal head. Thin bodied, tart finish.

Pours a clear pale yellow. Faint aroma of grass and apples. Dry, tart, and fizzy. Similar to cheap sparkling white wine, but with tart green apple finish.

ffbot (367) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2015
One of my favorite Aces, and not because of the higher percentage (though that helps!). The aftertaste is the win for me: you dont taste the added alcohol level and instead its a nice crisp, champagne like drying effect.

While I had anticipated a somewhat boring and plain cider, I was pleasantly surprised. Not so bubbly, slightly dry, but leaves a pleasant taste on the tongue of fresh apples that leaves you wanting more. Im happy I decided to take this one off the shelf.
