Aroma and flavor is apples, mild fruit and a mix of tart and sweet in the finish. Had several years ago, was unremarkable but drinkable. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2004
2004 bottle. Pours a light yellow, bubbly, no sediment, little to no head. Aroma has some sweetness in it, but also a good crispness of green apples. Some varied and interesting notes in the aroma, not all sweet appley syrup, but light cobwebs, faint mustiness and a hint of cider vinegar. Flavor is quite sweet, but not cloyingly so. Drinkable enough, and not overcarbonated, but loses my interest towards the end. Mainly just swet apples with some decent crispness. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle and served in my New Glarus flute: Very light yellow hue with no head and some bubbles. The aroma has notes of Fuji and Macintosh apples, plastic, hay, and some refined sugar. The taste starts with some acidic apple notes with a thin-bodied apple flesh sweetness in tow. Lacks any tannic notes and has a fake concentrate tone about it. Thin and over carbonated, comes off as an alcopop more than a hard cider, too cleaned and filtered for it’s own good., utterly boring. jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Very light golden in colour with a thin white head and trillions of small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of tart apples, metal and a bit of bread. Light-bodied; Crisp apple taste with slight hints of citrus. Sweet flavour and not much else showing. Aftertaste is clean and crisp-no offensive qualities. Overall, lighter than most ciders, but more clean and tart than others- a decent choice overall. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia and sampled it on 27-November-2003. thedm (6180) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2007
This bottled cider from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated orange colored body. The mild aroma was raspberry. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of raspberry apple and red apple. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 My bottle says ‘cider jack draft cider’ on it - not draft cider. Somebody on the forum told me it is the same thing. So…. long time ago I decided I liked sweet bubbly fruity drinks. Is it true ‘you are what you drink?’ I distinctly remember the first time I tried orange and grape Nehi. Can’t forget the first time I scored a Mountain Dew! This is all reflected in the way I scored Frambroise raspberry lambic and sweet american hard ciders. I have had some ciders by Hornsby that where more like a wine cooler, with all their sugar and other additives in there – not really a cider. Anyway, they say the ciders in america are child’s play compared to the ciders that are available over in the UK. US ciders are simply bubbly fruit drinks by comparison. I hope someday to buy some real cider, I’m not too sure why they are not readily available here, considering the amount of UK beers I can easily get. This cider is in a short 12 oz brown bottle with a twist off cap. Has a dude staring at a red delicious apple on the front. Things are looking up, on the label the only other ingredients is malic acid, apple flavor, sorbate and sulfites! The aroma begins with a blast of sour apple candy. The smell expands to a larger volume once poured into my poor steeler stein. In the glass it has a very light pale yellow tinge, almost like a witbier. There is very little carbonation but I do see a spot in there where a bubble or two is arising. The initial flavor is a hit of slightly watery granny smith apple, not as sweet as I anticipated. The raspberry version is much sweeter. Bubbles arise every time the drinker takes a sip. Good carbonation on the palate. Very nice, not overly sweet finish - could drink a few of these. Seems like your typical so called ‘cider’ from the north east US. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 The aroma is more of the skin of the apple than the meat. It looks fine, clear yellow with slow carbonation. The taste is clean, but the finish has a metallic feel/taste to it.Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2009

Bottle. A pale golden body with a fizzy white head and a shallow stream of carbonation. Sweet cider y cut up apple slices light apple cider body with some mildly tart apple skins and darker fruit body. My only complaint is this sulfuric finish that seems to stink slightly on the roof of my mouth. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2013
A very old bottle that poured an amberish yellow color with aromas of tart apples, light vinegar, and driness. Flavors are the same dry aftertaste. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2005
A very light yellow body. The aroma is light Braeburn apples and some white wine. The taste is light Jonathon apples. There is also white grape juice and a hitn of wood in the finish. A little dry and I appreciate that in a macro cider.
