Uncle John’s Apple Draught Hard Cider is exactly what it advertises; and that is exactly what I want when I buy a hard cider. While some ciders can be too sweet and syrupy, others far too dry or tart to consume, this cider has a really nice balance of subtle honey sweetness, a pervasive tartness and a slightly floral, dry finish. Though some ciders are meant to be more complex (those made with additional flavors like raspberry, vanilla, hazelnut, etc.), this beverage is just a good ole “standard” cider. It didn’t take more than a few sips before I muttered to myself, “that’s legit.”
