    Aroma is crisp and apply - but of course - almost like normal "soft cider" except with a kick that lets you know this is a potent potable. Pours a nice clear amber, not much head; however, this is typical of ciders rather than beers. Crisp flavor is quite sweet, yet has that subtle alcoholic edge. Smooth texture is quite firm and fizzy. Maybe I need to try more ciders.

    Has a very fizzy pour/appearance at first. Pale golden colour, almost looks like apple juice. Actually tastes like it a lot but with a little bit of a pear flavour in the finish. A bit of a tingling sensation. Very lively carbonation. Goes down real easy though. Not too bad.

    pours a light golden pale yellow with no head or lace. The aroma is of course apples and some spice. The taste was apples, very cider like. The mouthfeel is crisp & refreshing, full bodied with just right amount of carbonation. It's a nice change of pace on a long night of beer drinking.

    I like the lively yet refined feel the yeast gives this one, otherwise a pretty standard cider. Smells and tastes of musty apples. A little on the sweet side, but nice overall...

    New to hard cider. Pours like apple juice and is highly carbonated. Aroma is similer to mead. Taste is very light and can't taste any alcohol in it. Goes down smooth.

    Aroma kinda musty, and grainy , hints of apple. Apple juice in color, no head or lace to speak of. Carbonation ok, nice tiny bite, flavor of sweet ripe apples. Crisp, and not too tart a nice cider.

    Once upon a time - this was my go to cider. I think of all the ciders, Woodchuck is the best - hands down. While I think the Granny Smith is the best, this was the one that was always available at the store when I wasn't in the mood for an ale or a lager. This beer is crisp, clean, tart, light, and refreshing. I would pick this up again anytime I wasn't feeling an ale or a lager - it just so happens that is rare.

    This is the first of four ciders I want to sample tonight. A nice crystalline golden colored cider. Bold apple aroma. Robust and smooth body. In it’s carbonation, the bubbles tickle the palate. The apple is the natural sweetness. Nothing artificial in this. Really nice.

    Smells sweet and of citrus. By far the best of all the Woodchuck Ciders I have tried recently. Decently dark amber in color and the taste is of an extra strong/sweet cider.

    OK, I must admit that I'm not as huge fan of cider, but that may be because this is the first - and olnly - one I've had. Some folks were over the other night and we had a few drinks on the deck to usher in the (finally) cooler temps down here. It tasted a lot like regular apple cider - only with more carbonation and a warmer taste going down. Not something that I'd reach for most of the time, but interesting to say the least.
