The Julian Hard Cider recipe originates from 1670 colonial America and is comparable to the finest British ciders. Unlike many “impostor” hard ciders on the market, it is easy to have more than one pint of Julian Hard Cider as we do not use concentrated apple Juice or additives which leave the drinker with a lingering sugary film and after-taste. Why is Julian Hard Cider the choice of true cider lovers? We have only one ingredient… the freshest apples in the world! Our cider is lightly carbonated with tartness, acidity and a clean dry finish, enabling it to stand firmly on its own or compliment your favorite meal. At Julian Hard Cider, we invite EVERYONE to put our hard cider alongside the best in the world, as we painstakingly strive to build our fan base one drinker at a time.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Picked up a Julian Hard Cider in one of their awesome 22oz bottles. The 1st thing that attracted me was the bottle but I was shocked by how fresh it tasted. It didn’t leave that slimy feeling in my mouth like a few other ciders and that 6.99% catches you by surprise. Was a pale and natural color and had a smooth and refreshing finish- I found a new favorite cider!

A nice light carbonated cider, perfect for a hot summers day. The freshness of the apples jump out of the bottle at you. This is not a heavy scrumpy type cider, but more a champagne style. Very refreshing.

An excellent apple cider, not to sweet, not to spritzy. Refreshing summer afternoon drink straight from the bottle. The alchohol rating is 6.99%

light body, thin feel, fizzy, pale, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness. I hate to say that I’m a fan of ciders because I tend to be so picky with them. Probably because I find most of them to be overpoweringly sweet. I’m more of an English cider girl with Strongbow setting the bar. Julian is in a class of it’s own. It’s about as far sweet as my palate prefers but it’s flavor is light and crisp and very drinkable - even for someone with a beer preference.

Julian Hard Cider takes a refreshing approach to Cider. Its a really tough decision between this and Strongbow, but I’m all about supporting my local economy and I’m pretty stoked to say that something this great comes from my backyard. Oh and their logo and labeling has got to be one of the coolest out there.

Unlike the last guy, I love the bottle, love the logo and is classic Julian CA. Very pale gold with scant, white, head / Clean, lightly sweet, malolactic, apple nose / Medium body, also has good finish / Simple flavors of malolactic fermented apples / Very nice and drinkable its the best hard cider out there.

Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is completely colorless. Aroma is notes of apple Jolly Rancher candy, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A completely non-serious, artificial apple candy rendition. It’s like carbonated water with a Jolly Rancher floating in it, and I’m not even trying to be funny. No color or nuance whatsoever. The candy-sweet aftertaste is just like soda pop. The awful packaging (the label is like a tattoo you’d see in a biker bar) made me leery about even trying it, and alas...in this case you can judge this book by its cover. The commercial description here is especially funny because the product is exactly what it claims NOT to be.

bomber. Clear, very light yellow and fizzy carbonation. Nice fresh apples, slightly acidic and tart, mostly dry with just a touch of sweetness. I’m not a big cider fan, but this one is decent enough.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Having drank cider across UK, Normandy and Sidra in Spain, this beverage is by far the most superior I have enjoyed in the States. The first thing you notice is its clarity. The best ciders I have found are the ones that do not allow their fresh juice to become overly exposed to the open air and therefore oxidize (similar to a cut or bruised apple). This makes for a clean, fresh nose, which Julian hits a bulls-eye. The taste is clean, not apple-candyish, slightly dry and tart. It’s a nice change from the over-sugared and concentrated kid’s ciders that were the only ones available when I was younger in Chicago. Just the right amount of carbonation and I’m in for a good cider session.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Very pale gold with scant, white, head / Clean, lightly sweet, malolactic, apple nose / Medium body, creamy, with clean and round, with good finish / Simple flavors of malolactic fermented apple and pear / Very nice and drinkable.
