Beer 308: Jack's Cider and Some Plans

I'm not wasting any of this glorious autumn Saturday sitting in front of the computer so today's post will be short and sweet.

What would be more appropriate on a day like today than a Jack's Hard Cider? While only producing hard cider since 2008, the operation that produces Jack's has been in business since 1907. It's located in Biglerville (Pennsylvania) -- a part of the state that is apple mecca.

If you're ever looking for something to do in early October...this weekend in fact...head over to the national apple festival near Arendtsville (Pennsylvania). It is exactly what autumn is all about. We were there a few years ago and I nearly overdosed on apple-based foods and drinks. It was heaven! The street light covers were apple shaped! And since the festival isn't too far from Biglerville, where Jack's is produced, you might as well stop there too. Sounds like a plan to me...

Back to the cider review.

Jack's Cider pours a very, very pale shade of yellow. It has lots carbonation, which is refreshing and not overwhelming. The smell is sliced apples. The taste is tart and tangy with a bit of earthiness. The sweetness is very low. This may be one of the better ciders I've had.

I'll rate it great and bid you adieu. Cheers!
