I not normally a cider drinker, or cyder for that matter. I use Aspalls vinegar, noticed this on the supermarket shelf, chilled it and hey presto - a very enjoyable glassfull. Loads of fresh zesty apples, no metallic or chemical tastes. Very light mouth feel and over all most refreshing. They sell it in the pub near work and Im having next time Im in there. AND its organic - which has to count for something. No? Oh well.

nice looking with chapagne like effervesence. Aroma is slight vin and apple. Smooth with a sharp dry finish of tart apple that lingers. At the warrington.

Dogbrick (12233) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle from Winking Lizard. This Cider pours a clear pale yellow-gold color with a wispy white head that diminishes quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma is vinous with some sour apple. Light, dry body with tart apple flavor along with a touch of oak and sweet spice. The finish is fruity and lingering. Overall it is a fairly straightforward Cider.

bhensonb (14474) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Interesting "green" aroma. Very pale gold color. Medium body with fine carbonation. Just a hint of sugar. Very mild, pure fresh apple flavor - neither green nor red. Some skin. Hardly any cooked apple. Clean and crisp. Maybe just a touch of grass.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Dry ciders are my favorite, so I was excited to try this one. Pours a light straw color with some good carbonation. Has a promising aroma; fermented apples are at the forefront. A little disappointing on the flavor though. Its very dry which is nice, but the apple flavor isnt as pronounced as it could be. Someone below mentioned "tonic water" and I could see where you might think that. A little more aggressiveness with the apple flavor might be nice, but otherwise a very enjoyable cider.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 First cider rating. Poured from a bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a head that fizzled out immediately/ Nice rising bubbles. Aroma of, surprisingly, apples. Sharp, sweet and sour taste with apples on the finish. Nice and crisp on the palate. Not too versed in ciders, but this was nice.

Bottle; My second cider rating so presumably quite naive.

Pours pale clear yellow with a fluffy white but incredibly short-lived head that disappears in fractions of a second before my eyes. White wine aroma with apple notes; flavor is like a overly-sweet chardonnay, buttery with a hint of wood, acid, and of course apple. Not nearly as dry as I expected, but only very mildly sour and entirely quaffable. Nice light sparkling mouthfeel. Seems to me that enjoyed this more than the medium, which is probably an indicator of poor taste on my part. Ah well....

CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Elysian Fields brewpub on October 17, 2007, Seattle. Reminded me of a fizzy Strongbow. Light yellow in colour and more tonic water flavoured than apples. Pretty bad.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
Pours a savannah yellow. Nose of appleas and fermentation. Body is light. Taste is if apples and a moderate sourness followed by some sweetness. This is moderately enjoyable fayre.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
500ml bottle. Aroma of golden apple, berry and cherry fruitiness, along with some light flowers and herbs. Pale golden color, clear, with some light visible carbonation. Flavor follows aroma closely, has that apple juice tang here and there combined with the tart sweetness and floral touches. Mouthfeel is light, refreshing and effervescent, quite dry. Pleasant enough, albeit fairly simple.
