Our Review of the Cider
Julia's Thoughts and Rating:
Lake Hopper has some bite up front. It also has a bit of carbonation right off the bat, which causes your tongue to tingle, and that tingling continues till the end of the sip. About midway through the sip, a hint of lemon comes through, and it finishes with a hoppy and slightly bitter flavor. This is a light-bodied, off-dry (not bone dry but also pretty much no sweetness to it) cider, and because it is neither too sweet nor heavy, I found it very easy to drink. Overall, I enjoyed this cider, and its flavor reminded me of a light beer.
Ramsay's Thoughts and Rating:
Has a medium bite upfront that quickly fades and becomes less pronounced throughout the sip.
Has a very noticeable lemon/citrus flavor.
Not an overly appley flavor profile. Reminds me of a slightly sweet, lighter beer.
A fairly light-bodied drink and not too carbonated.
Despite being on the drier end of the spectrum, it still manages to have a subtle yet noticeable sweetness throughout the sip and afterwards.
Has a dry finish that has me wanting another sip. As you keep drinking the cider, its dryness becomes less noticeable.
Definitely a good cider. Could have multiple before growing tired of it
