Seattle Cider Company
Semi Sweet Hard Cider
Seattle Cider Company Semi Sweet Hard Cider (6.5% alcohol by volume) is made from Granny Smith, Fuji, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and Gala apples. The ingredients include fresh pressed Washington apples, cane sugar and sulfites. It has a very light apple aroma with some citrus, spice and white wine character and just a hint of light funk. It brilliant pale gold and produces a 1/4" off-white fizzy, frothy cap that quickly reduces to a thin ring of foam around the rim. It has good reflectance. The cider is semi-sweet and moderately carbonated with just enough acidity to keep the sweetness in line. The flavors are mild apple and citrus with traces of spice. Mild apple tannins provide a very light astringent note on the finish to slightly dry things out. The body is medium light and the cider finishes crisp. Drink this cider with grilled fish, pasta with cream sauces or pork. Seattle Cider Company recommends Dubliner, Asiago, Parmesan and aged sharp cheddar. I rate Seattle Cider Company Semi Sweet Hard Cider 80.
