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, it’s actually fairly substantial in the mouth, with champagne-like carbonation biting a bit. I’m really surprised this one is getting beat up so much. Admittedly I don’t have many cider ratings, and I may look at this one and laugh someday, but I quite enjoyed this.

Clear light golden color/ fizzy head. Mild sulfer, yeasty white bread, yellow apple aromas. Light to medium body. Semi dry flavors of golden apples, white bread, mild sulfer again, crisp finish--decent

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.

Bottle. Pours golden thin head. Nice apple flavor but taste more like a beer than other ciders I’ve had. Medium body, flavor hides alcohol well. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not the best smelling or most attractive cider I’ve ever seen. Smells like a little apple, and some champagne yeast. Looks like a drug test sample. Tastes like a beautifully dry, yet still complex champagne. There are fresh apple and pear flavors, some slightly tannic, mouth puckering flavors as well, and then the champagne yeast that lets it all finish long, clean and dry. This is a well done, classic hard cider.
