    pours a medium yellow golden color with virtually zero head. The aroma is that of apples. The taste is nice clean and crisp cider with a semi-dry finish. Very clean tasting and very easy to drink.

    Nice! Tastes exactly like a non-alcoholic sparkling apple cider. While today's flavored malt liquor drinks sadly fall into this fruity-flavored range, keep this Samuel Smith bottle next to your glass while drinking so everyone knows you're not getting tipsy on a poor-man's budget. This is a really pleasant drink that I think everyone will find agreeable. Just quality from start to finish. Can be enjoyed cold or at room temperature. Highly recommended!

    I think this is my first organic cider. I do like cider in general, but organic brews I usually find weird. Typical cider yellow colour with a white head and not much lacing. Apple scent with grain malt (which I do smell in non-organic ciders). Pure apple taste with a little balsamic vinegar touch in the finish. Mild sourness but not too much. A decent cider that is closer to real apples than fake candy apples.

    1/2liter bottle: Decants a clear shimmering golden cider....short lasting cap. very effervescent. Demure apple aroma mingles with some mustyness. Decently dry and sparkling with a good variety of apple tastes, mildly sweet...sharp puckering dry finish. This tastes very close to the dry cider I make using wellsley sweet cider and champagne yeast then cold aging before bottle conditioning. Unlike the Sam Smith’s, mine is unfiltered and bottle conditioned, this gives a whole cider flavor which the SS cider seems to lack. However, this is very good premium cider for a commercial effort though.

    A very nice clean beverage, pours nicely amber apple, fresh crisp taste with just about the right amount of carbonation, sweetness compliments the moderate alcohol level. A good beverage to give to grandma and watch her fall off her walker!

    Sampled on 5/5/2010. This cider pours a medium yellow gold color from a 55oml bottle. Small quickly disappearing white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, apples and a little tartness. Light to medium bodied cider. The apples are semi-sweet, and there is a touch of tartness at the finish. Fairly light carbonation, which shows up very strongly later… A nice clean and crisp cider with a semi-dry finish. Very clean tasting and very easy to drink. Yet, somehow for all the organic ingredients it seems a little artificial tasting. Not really bad, but I guess I was expecting a little more apple flavor. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly dry and a touch sweet.

    550 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Ingredients are water, organic apple concentrate, organic cane sugar, malic acid, yeast, carbon dioxide. Hm. So much for "fresh apples straight from the tree". Extremely pale yellow colour, pours very fizzy with a big to moderate head that actually lasts for a while. Moderate aroma of cider apples, eating apples and dust. The flavour is bland and watery, medium sweet (or medium dry, if you like), notes of bland eating apples without much character. Not much to write home about.

    Poured out a crystal clear bright gold brew with a large bright white bubbly / creamy head, spotty lacing and awesome retention. A quick swirl produces a revamped cap. Very nice aroma: big, juicy, sweet gala apples, light green grapes, a bit earthy and possibly... maybe a touch of cinnamon. Solid sweet (not overly) apple taste... more of an apple flavour that you’d find with bruised apples, light musty notes throughout that balance the taste well. It’s this mustiness that has captured my interest. Nice tartness that is not over the top, consistent sweetness with light grape and a bit of yeast. A bit tingly with carbonation but it’s effect is mild overall. Drying mouthfeel, long apple finish.

    Well, another experience with ciders. This one? Looks like apple juice. There is a small white head, that can be maintained by stirring it. The nose is tart, the way I like my apples. The body is crisp. And the taste on this one? Apple Cider. Not real strong on alcohol, though. Nevertheless not a bad drink.

    Apples, crisp slightly trat apples. The aroma is ...let me think....pears? No. Grapes? No. Cumquats? Um, no! APPLES! Nice littel fizzy cider that is a clean clear pour with a slight head. Did I mention the aroma is of...apples? Nice drink on a hot day. I like Schrumpies a little better, though.
