Review: Original Hard Cider by Washington Gold Cider

Sweetness: Semi-Sweet

ABV: 6.50%

Cider Maker’s Description

Pale golden with sparkling clarity and bright flavors, this semi-sweet cider is made from 100% fresh-pressed Washington apples. Subtle floral notes combine with a hint of vanilla bean and ripe apple, awakening memories of a fall day in the orchard.


  • crystal clear, bright, light yellow color 


  • small to medium bubbles on pour, none linger, almost no bubbles on swirl 


  • vanilla, honey, floral 


  • great apple taste, starts with red apple and finishes with green, closer to sweet than semi-sweet, 


  • crisp, balanced acidity, very slight astringency 


  • long finish 

Tasting Notes / General Impression

great summer cider, very refreshing

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
