2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light golden with a slight green tinge to it and hardly any head. Aroma of green apple bubble gum, very artificial. Flavor has the same qualities with a very artificial apple flavor to it. Some granny smith notes make their way through to redeem it. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and has some hard water notes. Had better ciders.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Soft floral cider aroma. Very, very pale and it loses its carbonation quickly. Musty-earthy champagne yeast, tart, dry. Light body. Aftertaste is like astringent chablis. Meh.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light in color with a slightly tart aroma of apple and pear. Flavor is a bit acidic, but seems more on the Perry side than cider-ish. Seems to have gone a bit wrong. Not very good at all.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a quite mediocre cider very akin to a Pino Grigio or so. The floral aroma is not very attractive and rather girly. The palate is shallow and the appearance leaves virtually no head. Smells kind of like Smarties. It has the fizziness of champagne, but this beverage is too jokey. Unfortunately, the joke is on the buyer for having shelled out ze cashes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the. . . cidery? Clear pale pale straw with no head, just a couple streamlined beads of carbonation. Aroma has apple juice and apple candy. Flavor has pretty tart apples and not much else. Not much sweetness to be had and finishes semi-dry. Light carbonation with a light to medium body. Not too bad, if unspectacular.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the cider pub. Champagne color. Light fresh apple scent. Very crisp and lightly tart. Rather hints of Granny Smith. Perhaps the best cider I’ve ever had - freshness may have something to do with this. I think really fresh ciders are better than bottles. Course I’m projecting from a pretty small database.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber bottle. pours with a pale green tinge, kinda like cat piss. huge foamy head dissipates rather quickly. aroma hits of green apple, strong minerality and stone fruit. the taste is kind of like a demi sec champagne. tastes like a dry cider, imagine that. fruity, strong citrus and acidity, but thank god its not too sweet. the finish steadily declines leaving a lemon like citrus flavor lingering for a while. I havent had too many ciders, but I do fancy this one. It is quite refreshing.
