2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5oz taster on tap during Cincinnati Beer Fest 2013. Totally clear golden yellow orange color. Minimal white head. Nice pumpkin type spicy aroma, works well with the apple. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Sort of tart taste, light sweet. Solid pumpkin cider, slight macro feel, but it’s not bothersome... The whole flavor combo works well and carries the cider.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10/30/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Biting the bullet on this since there wasn’t anything else new on tap. Clear golden orange pour with no head, as expected. Mild, sweet cider aroma with just a hint of pie spice. Sweet flavor, apple cider with nutmeg and cinnamon. This is actually pretty good if you know what you’re in for. Like most pumpkin beers, it’s basically just spice, but unlike the beers, in this case it makes it into a really nice tasting cold spiced apple cider. I don’t mind it one bit.

Saled at eabls. Clear ligjt golden. Ok, I smell both appke and pumpkin. Somehow an after shave nose, too with nutmeg. Appkes are tasted and they are sweet apples. Yellow ones? Some spice. No pumpkin is tasted yet. A decent mass market kind of cider.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with a small soapy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was tangy, sour, buttery and a bit off with faint clove and cinnamon underneath. The flavor was tangy, tart and astringent with sharp cinnamon and apple. Medium length tart and astringent apple and cinnamon finish. Light body. Not good.
