Thor's Hard Cider Dry
Aamodt's Apple Farm Thor's Hard Cider Dry (7.0% alcohol by volume) lists apples and nothing else on its ingredient list. It contains no added sugar, no apple juice concentrates, and no preservatives. It has a faint apple aroma, some mild white wine character and a dash of light spice and fruit. It pours brilliant pale gold with a slight initial head and moderate effervesence. The cider sparkles over the tongue hinting of smoke and seasoned by apples and light fruit. The cider is dry, mildly acidic and mildly astringent on the finish but not bitter. The acidity and the carbonation finish the cider with a pleasant little bite. The cider is crisp and refreshing and a perfect match for a nice chunk of aged sharp cheddar, a ham sandwich or an apple pie. I rate it 81.
