Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider Review

Bottled Seasonal Flavor That's Not a Beer

There are hard-core beer drinkers, and those who prefer sweeter fizzy stuff — hard apple cider, that is. Cider fans who want the added bonus of a seasonal flavor: look no further than Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider ($10 for a six-pack). Ace Ciders has been around for 15 years, brewing next door to its wine-making neighbors in Sonoma County.

The fermented apple cider tastes more of green apple than it does of pumpkin, but allspice shines through, offering a hint of Fall flavor. Big, bold beer fans thought the cider was "too sweet," but others loved the cider for its syrupy sugar content. A few tasters described the flavor as "unexpected" and could imagine the cider used in a cocktail or a Halloween punch. If you are gluten-free, don't like beer, or are a sucker for sweet alcoholic beverages, then Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider is the bottle for you.
