Yellow-gold with no head / Stylish, lightly sweet, nose of apple, grapes, and corn, with a hint of barnyard / Medium body, steely, resinous, and mostly dry with just a hint of sugar / Clean flavors of green apple brandy, pear, resin, and hay / Not really champagne-like, but a fine American cider.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 4/30/12, (same label as the picture except that it says it is only 6.9% alcohol)
Aroma: The nose has a good amount of apple, with some dry characteristics
Appearance: The pour is a completely clear light gold color (reminds me of white grape juice)
Flavor: Tastes sweet and fruity, some tartness too, this is somewhere between a cider and a wine
Palate: The body is light, but not at all watery, with average carbonation, and slightly tingly finish
This is an alright cider. I didnít love it, but then again, I donít love most ciders. It was kind of different in that it had that slightly wine-like characteristic to it that you donít see in a lot of other ciders.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Cascading bubbles rise from the pale clear yellow body to form a small foamy white head. Aroma is white wine, muted green apple, and a little pear. Very dry. The taste brings to mind champagne, with a touch of tart, dry apple throughout. The white wine character is still there and some red apple sweetness comes through on the finish. Tart and quenching, itís actually fairly substantial in the mouth, with champagne-like carbonation biting a bit. Iím really surprised this one is getting beat up so much. Admittedly I donít have many cider ratings, and I may look at this one and laugh someday, but I quite enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at green man - pours a pale pale green yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is a light green apple, crust, cinnamon. Taste is a dry sweetly sour. They remind me of diluted green apple jolly ranchers. Palate is bright, bubbly note with lingering dryness. Better than I was expecting! Would get again on tap.

Very light yellow, looks a little thicker than some of the other ciders. Smells dry and wine-like. Tastes tart and dry. This drank like a dry apple based wine really, good summer drink.
