A pretty good cider. Not very interesting to look at, but has pleasant apple flavour and aroma. Taste like real apples, not "candy". Okay.

Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is a crystal clear golden color with champagne like bubbles clinging to my flute glass. White wine, dry yeast, champagne, light pear, apple sauce, and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is semi-sweet, crisp straw, baked apples, biscuit, and tannin with a crisp dry finish. Light body with high carbonation. The sweetness in this cider cuts through the acidity nicely, balanced with dry champagne notes. Not bad.

Enjoyed at a winery tasting. Pours a bright tan with a small white head. Smells of sparking fruit cocktail. Tastes of Macintosh apples with a tart apple finish.

Sampled at ĘppelTreow Winery. The cider was brighter in the flavor and aroma than most of the other ciders. Crisp apple pie and yellow apple skins. Unfortunately, not as smooth or blended.

The aroma was just a bit funkier than the Hogans Draught cider (UK) that I tried along side this. Fruity notes, but also a little head-scratching acidity. Less fizzy, too. Drinkable; Im curious about this producer now. (on tap at Town Hall, Minneapolis)

4oz pour at Churchkey is a crystal clear gold with zero head and medium carbonation. Nose is sweet apples, honey, pears, flowers. Flavor is sweet, apple juice, honey, apple skins, Granny Smith tartness. Medium bodied, slick finish. A refreshing tartness on the palate.

Tap at Churchkey. Quite a nice cider with light, crisp, and extremely true to style cider flavor; both the fruit and skin come through beautifully. Not complex, but yummy, and at least supporting a cool winery for those people who wont drink the more intense beers.
