After the other half came home, she decided she wanted a cider. I put this one in the fridge, which means that the only cider that we haven’t tried from McKenzie’s is their original cider. I guess next time we head up to the area (which may be in November since we got tickets to Ingrid Michaelson at the Tarrytown Music Hall), I’ll have to grab that one to finish the set. Anyways, I think this was marketed as a summer cider because of the use of lemon in it. Let’s see how it was.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Pucker up! You’re gonna love this little tart. Lazy Lemon has a burst of citrus without the acidic bite, giving long, carefree days a zesty punch of refreshing flavors. Serve chilled, kick back and enjoy often.”
Random: I’m hoping to get out of work early today and spend some time with the other half, who is off today. Lucky!
This cider poured with absolutely no head on top of a clear, light yellow body that had a slight green tinge to it. There was no visible carbonation. The nose was light with an aged apple smell and very light lemon. The taste had green apple juice along with lemon rind. The dominant flavor on the cider was definitely green apple. It needed more lemon to bill it as a lemon cider. The body was moderately thick with light carbonation. It had a quick finish with green apples. it was $1.79 a bottle which translates to $.15 per ounce, which is a good deal. Despite that, the cider was alright, but nothing I would buy again.
