3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Run. The pour’s almost clear. Very light gold with no head whatsoever. Active carb rising from the bottom of the glass. The nose is honeyed apple and pear. Light citrus, musty grape, countryside earthiness. Super dry, sweet flavors. Nice earthy spice, wood, manure. More citrus. Very tart on the bone dry finish. Light body, not a hint of the chunky ABV. Active carbonation. Overall, pretty good actually. I’m not much of a cider drinker, but this is certainly tasty.
