Cider Type: Hard Apple Cider Irish Stout Yeast and Organic Molasses

Price: $5.97

Rating: 5 out of 10 stars

Notes:  Molasses, Sweet,  Stout, Apples

K: It’s the cider for Guinness lovers, but Guinness lovers dont want cider. This one smells beer-y too.  Again, i wouldn’t search this out again.

C: I think this one is more drinkable though.

K: Yes, it’s less dry.

C: The molasses is a very strong taste, and i’m not sure i can taste apples at all.

K: The very first taste is apple, it gets more molasses-y as you drink. And the warmer it gets, the more it tastes of molasses.  And it’s really sweet.

The bottle:

“Extra Stout Bodied Cider

Naturally fermented with original Irish stout ale yeast using a premium blend of fresh pressed apple juice, not from concentrate, with no added malt, spirit, or grape alcohol.

A full bodied, confident and imposing cider. Brown, deep and rich, a slight hint of butterscotch, balanced by a subtle fruitiness and slightly dry crisp finish with a uniquely full and buttery mouth-feel.

Lansdowne’s Artisanal Reserve cloudy hard cider is unfiltered and uses racked apple wine smoothed with pure organic molasses, a kiss of organic honey, and no added colorants, sorbate or benzoate preservatives, and is best served ice-cold or over ice for bold, crisp refreshment. “
