Review: Scrappy Apple – Dry Hard Cider by Talbott’s Cider Co.

Sweetness: Dry

ABV: 6.00%

Cider Maker’s Description

This dry cider is for all of us who order a drink and think, hmm…next time less sugar. A cider so dry it tastes similar to dry white wines such as Sauvignon blanc or even champagne. Also a great cocktail mixer for Mimosas.


  • very similar to the hopped, very clear, bright, light color 


  • small bubbles on pour developed a small froth, several bubbles lingering around edge, tiny bubbles continuing to rise from bottom of glass 


  • caramel, hints of red apple 


  • dry, appley, earthy 


  • slight acidic bite 


  • moderate

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.
