Doc’s Draft Original Hard Apple Cider

Posted: August 9, 2015 in Cider, Reviews, Warwick Valley Wine Co.

This was what Val ordered at the beer hall. This was their only cider choice and they didn’t have much in terms of fruity beer. I was surprised that I’ve never had anything from Doc’s before. They’re widely available in this area, especially in bombers. It’s one of the first ciders I remember seeing when I started frequenting Cranbury Buy Rite. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 5%

Style: Cider

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This cider is semi-dry and wonderfully effervescent with a remarkably fresh apple nose. Its crisp, fruit forward taste and a clean, refreshing finish, have won our cider countless awards and praise.”

Random: I’m trying a new approach to blogging where I schedule posts every day instead of having days or weeks where I post nothing and then post a bunch of things in one day. We’ll see how long I stick with this.

This cider poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated slowly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was a greenish-yellow color with light carbonation visible. The nose had notes of fresh, red apples and not much else. The taste started with some tartness and then went into red apple notes. There was a tinge of lemon as well. The body was thin with high carbonation. It had a long finish with tart apple notes. This was a simple cider that wasn’t bad, by any means, but didn’t impress me. I would have it again, but I’d prefer something a bit more exciting.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
