Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
It is a sparkling bubbly wine experience. The pour of crystal golden color, the smell the texture and even the taste is a sweet apple bubbly. The smell is fruity apple cider aroma. The taste is clean and refreshing with a nice sweet smooth apple cider body and a crisp dry (slightly tart) bit in the finish. If you like apple cider and champagne I suspect you will enjoy this beer. Well done Woodchuck. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Bottle - drank straight from bottle, sweet apple aroma and flavor with mild tartness, not bad overall, better than I expected to be honest, good little change of pace from beer to cleanse the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChadPolenz (1820) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: C1A New World Cider

AROMA: More sweet than dry (medium to med-dry range). Clean red apple aroma. Faint acid. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Golden/light amber hue. Near brilliant clarity. Slow steady CO2 visible. Small white foam and trace lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Sweeter palette than nose would suggest (but in no way cloying). Taste is akin to standard apple juice; no spices or additives. Light tartness/acidity on the backend with mostly clean finish. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Extremely smooth and refreshing. No linger acidity. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty much everything you expect in a standard hard cider. Solid, to-spec, and highly drinkable. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 38/50

This is a very generic cider with a pale amber appearance. Aroma is sweet apple. Flavor is like nose plus the carbonic tang and not much else. Finish is fairly short and like flavor. Boring.

ordybill (1759) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2016
poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Has a fairly crisp flavor but is very sweet. Not a bad cider.

The measuring stick by which ciders should be compared. By that I mean, a true baseline-- aroma is a champagne-like apple. Headless pour, with a middle-of-the-road sweetness that is just sweet enough to not overwhelm. A bit sticky on the palate, almost syrupy. Not too sharp. A hint of tartness on the backend.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2016
[email protected] Door, Helsinki. Golden colour, no head. aroma is apple, some sweetness, mild nectar and wood. Flavour is apples, some mild green apple skins as well as quite sugary notes. Flavour is similar. A bit too sugary, but while it was fridge cold it was atleast refreshing.
