Bantam The American and Newton’s Folly Granny Smith Ciders

Bantam The American

Hi everyone. It’s Melissa. I know it has been a little while since I posted. Josh asked me to catch up on some cider reviews I’ve had stashed away, in order to help keep the blog active during our vacation. I’ve had these reviews of Bantam The American and Newtons Folly Granny Smith Ciders hanging around for some time.

First, Bantam The American. This is a 5.1% ABV cider. It has the aroma of cinnamon, which mixes with sweet apple in the flavor for a nice balance of sweet/spicy. I totally wanted an apple pie after having this cider. Very delicious.

Newton's Folly Granny Smith Draft Cider

Next up, Newton’s Follow Granny Smith is a basic, minimalistic cider. Starts sweet and finishes tart. A very “clean” finish. Not too dry, not too sweet. Average.

DeMunck's Belgian Style Hard Cider

Who’s already sick of winter? I am I am! I’m freezing my fingers off just typing this. Since Josh won’t take me away to the Caribbean I’m stuck at home drinking a cider and dreaming of a warm beach. My daydream is accompanied by DeMunck’s Belgian Style Hard Cider.

This cider is made by Southern Tier brewing company. It is 5% alcohol by volume. I found it to be clean and crisp with a mild flavor, making it great to go with a meal. I would definitely have it again.
