Woodchuck Amber

Appearance: clear apple juice. No head, no bubbles.

Nose: apple pulp. Zip of acidity along the edges with fresh lemon zest. Crispness of apple skin. Pears wisp in and out. Simple and pleasantly apple sweet.

Palate: simple sweet fresh crushed and juiced apples. Hint of artificial sugary sweetness which grows borderline saccharine; teeth ache. Honey along the sides. Lemon skin. More sugar atop the middle of my tongue.

Final Thoughts: meh. Having tasted far better ciders I can appreciate what Woodchuck has done over the years for bringing cider to the drinking public, but still just too sweet. Maybe some ice would help…
