On tap at Schilling, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out medium sweet apples, some apple core and a touch of caramel. Flavour tastes like ripe apple cores, with medium sweetness and some prominent pithy notes. Apple cores galore - this works pretty well. Nice one.

Draft - Cooked apple. Pale gold. Sweet, light apple and a light rounded finish. Not crisp, but rounded and a bit boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ The Festival 2014. Clear pale yellow pour with white foam and a decent amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a vanilla and sweet fruit nose to it good acidity, though. Hints of citrus zest and yeast, too. Flavor is well balanced, but maybe a bit more on the acidic side than I would have liked. Still, it’s a pleasant cider. Lots of apple character, both sweet and tart.

"a little tartness and an ever so slight hint of funk add another layer to this crisp and pleasantly refreshing, yet flavorful cider. there’s also a hint of spice in the aroma especially, though subtle. Nicely done."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Greenish yellow gold pour with a small, quickly fading clear layer of bubbles. Aroma is tart apple, fruity and light doughy yeast, a hint of booziness and wax lips candy. Flavor is sweet apple up front, some nice sweet floral notes, a little tart apple then some dusty minerality, hints of berry fruit and light oily booziness to the finish. Light body with a light, but spritzy and blanketing carbonation, juicy then slightly dry feel. Good stuff overall, maybe a little messy with the booziness and doughy yeast, but still quite enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Offers a very clear pale golden color with a quicker than champagne rise and fall head, a few tiny bubbles are offered.
The aroma is cool, apple-y, a little boozy, some clay… no spoiled meat.
Flavor is lightly sweet, a touch too boozy as well. It tastes a little like cheap white wine… which I’m not one to criticize but it’s what Charles Shaw is for… amIrite? It’s got a decent apple flavor and finishes dry. It’s got some good minerallity.

Government shutdown beverege #3, thank you Congress. Hazy light straw color. Aroma of fresh apple flesh and dried apple skins. Taste is light applesauce. Simpler and cleaner than a House floor speech.

Not a bad cider, rotten apples, crisp flavor, not super sweet, definitely not like mass-produces stuff.
