This went down the drain, which is rare as I often battle through something I don't like with the hope I change my mind and prove to myself that I did not waste my money after all.
I'm also let down by the fact that this was craft Irish cider. The patriot in me wanted to weep. Stonewell Cider is brewed in Cork, which is where I picked it up.
Let's start with the first issue. The smell! It smells like stinky foot cheese. It does not quite taste as bad as that, though there is still a cheesiness to it. I also found it syrupy sweet. To me it was just nasty.
That said, I am not much of a cider drinker these days, though I do like very dry and unsweetened ciders if I can find them.
