2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on 1/22/14 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear golden with some thin white bubbles that leave a short-lived collar. The nose is sweet and tart fresh apple juice with some spicy ginger and a touch of bubblegum. The flavor is the same sweet and tart apple with a whole lot more dusty and spicy ginger than on the nose. The body is just below medium with light carbonation and a long dusty and spicy ginger finish.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lingering ring of white bubbles. Aromas of straw, apple and light ginger. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of apple, light ginger and light straw with a crisp lingering apple finish.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, twist-off. Nose is sweet apple with light tang, medium and very earthy ginger. Pours pale golden without a head. Taste very sweet, thin light body, a little stale and the apple really isn’t given a chance to shine, the ginger comes in late and without any punch. Just a missed opportunity here, the combination has potential.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is pretty well your standard cider, some baked apple sweetness and some skins, but with a light hint of fresh ginger. The flavor is sort of a cross between apple juice and ginger ale, with the firm fizzy carbonation level to match the comparison to ginger ale. This is really quite refreshing in the way that a well made hot ginger ale is. Not so sure that means it’s a great Cider, but it is pretty pleasant to drink. I could do a few of these on a summer day in place of a ginger ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet, but pleasant, flavor. Mostly apple, with a very faint kick of ginger. Being a gingerphile, I would have liked a lot more spice to it. Think Martinellis after a piece of ginger has been dunked inside for 10 minutes. Drinkable, but not superb.

12oz bottle..I couldn’t detect much ginger in the nose, mostly apple. Pours a clear gold color. Ginger very distinctive in the taste, with the tart apple as a finish. Very good cider.

It pours a golden color with minimal carbonation. It has the aroma of apples and ginger. It tastes like a cross between a hard cider and a ginger beer. I like it and would buy it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle at a friend’s party. Pours a pale, clear gold without much of a head, some white bubbles. Clean, fresh apples and some spicy ginger on the back end. Pretty straightforward. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, barely tart, spicy mouthfeel. Not bad. Refreshing.

I thought this was good for what it is. However, it’s not really beer and tastes more like some type of dry apple wine. I’d rather go for a good white wine if I was going to go for something like this.
