Draft at World of Beer (Carrollwood, FL). Pours a clear golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Tart and crisp apple aroma and flavor. The 8% is undetectable. Dry aftertaste.

Nice to see an American cidery try to get away from the over the top tartness and sweetness that they are all mostly guilty of and try to make a decent cider in the dry vein.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Tasted 8/9/10. 22oz bomber. Very, very pale straw golden hue. Trace ring of read. Champaign style nose with tart green apple candy note. Bubble gum and sugary sweet. Medium bodied with a bitter tart body and the effervescence of a sparkling wine. Mild finish and a slightly lingering mix of 7Up sticky citrus and Green Apple candy. Decent stuff.

Shag (2668) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Had this on tap. Not much to say except standard macro cider taste with more of an alcohol bite. This should be banned as its potential date rape beverage. Overall pass.....

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Pale, white tint. No head, and thus high maintenance. Revreshingly sweet aroma, but that is uually the case with deception. Papery, fried flour, pale, sugary taste. Fritzy, not frizzy, mouthfeel and you know that’s bad. Reproachful aftertaste, as is the case with MOST white wines.

Very light yellow pour. Aroma of tart apples and light yeast. Flavor is very tart, yeast comes through, lemons and apples. Interesting.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle from cwsample. Clear pour with no head. Aroma is too sweet, tart, and old apples. Taste is tart, green apple, and sweetener.

Cavie (4005) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods courtesy of cwsample. Clear light straw color. No head. Cider aroma. Apples, crispness, slight butter. Refreshing. Taste is apple tartness and light sweet flavors. Soft and easy.

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Bottle... Pours nearly clear with effervescence, but no head. The aroma is of dried, fallen apples. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is far more tart and refreshing than I anticipated. Sweetness is low. Alcohol is unapparent. Finishes tangy and dry. Bottle states 6% ABV; not 8% ABV. Enjoyable.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in a pub glass. The beer pours a Champagne-colored light yellow hue, with essentially no head. The nose carries the slight scent of artificial backsweetening, but also pleasant hints of tart apples. The palate lacks the bracing acidity and tartness of some better European examples of the style, but still manages to show a subtle note of tartness, especially in the mid- and late palate. Artificial sweetness is also present in the flavor profile, but is subtle enough to avoid being a real detractor. Perhaps the cider’s highlight is its deft concealment of alcohol. At 8%abv, this is about as drinkable as lemonade...dangerous in its deception. Overall, a little too much of an effort to appeal to the narrow American palate, but style a decent effort.
