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.
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.
