Pale gold, bordering on faded yellow, the Semi-Sweet from Seattle Cider Co. gives up the bubble on pouring; effervescent, but no so sparkled. A sweet, fresh picked apple aroma dominates this cider, which was produced primarily with culinary apples. We get slight floral hints and some candied lemon rind. On the palate simple sugary-ness uplifts straightforward apple flavors. The barest hint of bitter finishes the cider. Structurally, the cider needs more acid and some tannins would help fill it out. However, chilled down this is a very happy cider that is going to make many people very happy. Simple but happy cider.
