    As being from Ireland and being exiled to LA (Lower Alabama) I have missed the refreshing taste of Cider. I recently found this "Blackthorn Cider" in a local store and from the start fell in Love with the taste. I have tried other brands and this one is the nice "Dry" taste that I think a Cider should be. Of course that is my self opinionated opinion.

    Nice cider, pretty floral with definite apple characteristics. Medium body fairly dry and refreshing. Another goes well with a meal beverage, fairly inexpensive, all in all a good value with regards to price and quality.

    Cider number three. A bright yellow colored brew. No lacing, though. The nose is a light sour apple. It is failry well carbonated. Light and dry. But too much acidiness in the tasting.

    I bought a 4-pack because that's how it came at my local liquor purveyor. The color was light, the aroma pleasant if soft, but the taste was too dry and alcohol-y for my taste buds, and not enough apple for me. No after taste.

    Poured a clear medium yellow with no head. The aroma of course was of apples. I found the taste to be a little vinagary but not bad. It went well with pork and slaw. I mixed a bit with cranberry juice, It made a nice combo. Quite refreshing.

    Darker than most ciders I’ve tasted. More like the color of a pale yellow ubiquitous american lager. No head and no sign of carbonation within. Taste is tingly. Has a flavor reminiscent of flavored malt liquor. Not really sweet but has a tad of apple flavor. Finish is friendly but that mild to medium presence of alky pops it’s head up. Rather fruity and refreshing tho there are more ciders out there that really are more cidery.

    This cider pours a very clear pale yellow. The aroma is weak, but you can get a whiff of some faint crab-apple goodness. The flavour is dry like a white wine, with some apple sweetness.

    Aroma is of fermented apples as well as sweet sugar and apple juice. Appearance is a deep, golden yellow in color with a full, white and fuzzy head on top that disappears almost immediately leaving no lacing at all. Mouthfeel is light-bodied and very dry with some sweet apple complexity. Flavor is of apple juice and sweetness with some tartness and some bitter but not overly so with an aftertaste that is clean and crisp as well as dry with a finish that is sharp and tasty. Overall, not my favorite style but this brew is tasty and almost like Strongbow but a bit better in my opinion and a great thirst-quencher during these hot Summer months in the South...Recommended.

    creamy then crisp and dry, it tastes pretty refined. Its light and not overly sweet which i like. The fine bubbles are nice although the finish is a bit flat. Flavor is a lot like apple juice, also a touch tart. Nice juicy aftertaste
