I finally broke down and picked up a 6're of the Crisp this past weekend. I drank them all before I could get a Gravity Reading on it. They have a nice tart pucker to them, but I tend to agree with some on here that it's still a mass produced taste. I think my hard cider using sto'bought AJ comes in as good. The AO has a slight bit more complexity, but I personally don't think it's worth almost $10 a 6 pack. Well, I don't think ANY commercial brew is worth that much if you can make something at home that's close.
Good luck with the clone! Hope to hear how it turns out.
