Hard Apple Cider by 3 Daughters Brewing is being judged as a C1A New World Cider. This Cider pours a quite clear pale straw color, fizzy with minimal head. Initial aroma is distinct fermented apple, but it does come across a bit apple sauce-like, lacking complexity of traditional ciders, leading me to think it's more dessert-apple based. Clean with some unfermented top notes as well. On tasting, it is distinctly on the sweet side of of semi-sweet, with a moderate acidity. Very easy to drink but fairly simple and somewhat one-dimensional, again lacking complexity of traditional cider apples.

Overall, clean and easy-drinking but lacking in overall complexity and a bit too sweet.
