   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2008
550 ml bottle from the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served a bit above fridge temperature from a 550 ml Sam Smith’s glass. Bubbly, huge white head fizzes away quickly above the roiling, fizzy pale gold and very clear body....dusty, dry, rather tart and somewhat musty/rotten apple aroma, not terribly pleasant, somewhat weak, though real enough I suppose.....definitely more pleasant on the tongue than in the nose, moderately sweet but full of apple rather than sucrose flavor, juicy and pretty full-bodied, with carbonation a little softer and less forced-feeling than the appearance suggests....nothing amazing in the character here, but perfectly drinkable, reasonably balanced in the dry/sweet axis....that’s about it.

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017
A hazed golden cider with aroma of sweet apple jam, light mineral notes, light acidity, pleasant. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity apple juice with light mineral notes, light acidity, refreshing and smooth. Bottle from LCBO.

Pours clear pale straw. Aroma of apples and champagne. Sweet apple juice, very slight tartness. Hint of musk. Light crisp carbonated mouthfeel.

FinnIckler (185) - GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle from bierlinie. Pours clear golden. Nose is natural Apple. Taste is dry, apple, sweet. Finish is is short, fruity. Best cider i have tried yet, but this isnt saying much.

tfontana (835) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is apple, champagne. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with nice sparkle, minimal white fizzy head. Taste is balance of light sweet and tart. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, initial burst of fizzy carbonation but then soft, and dry finish. Overall, a nice, light change of pace from beer.

Intricate08 (47) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Apple aroma, with a floral hint. Pours almost yellow with a moderate head that dissipates decently quick. Very smooth going down, would be easy to drink a few of these. Sits on the tongue lightly, mostly with that same floral aftertaste noted in the aroma. All in all an easy, above average cider.

Most disappointing for a Samuel Smith brew. Tastes watered down, not at all what I expected.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a hazy straw color with a quickly vanishing head. Smells? Of apples no surprise. Tastes of apples with some tartness. Very watery and unexciting. Overall? There are many ciders way better than this.

Erzengel (8172) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
*Old rating. Slightly sourish with a fruity and sweetish apple aroma. Nice and crisp, fresh but not too deep. Highly drinkable!

HuskerTan (1844) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle. A- White wine, dry, grapes. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, minimal fizzy head. T- Vanilla, honey, cotton candy, white wine, apples. P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet finish. O- I love Sam Smith and generally dont care for ciders so had no idea where this was headed. The aroma was awful. Smelled like a cheap white wine. Surprisingly the taste was quite good. Light and full of flavors, not just apple. The taste saved this beer.
