2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours gold with a little fizz. Aroma made me think of sliced hard boiled egg. ? Concentration gives me a hint of cinnamon. Med minus body. Flavor is definitely spicy cinnamon. Probably better than a lot of pumpkin beers, considering the season. Certainly spices up the cider.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale yellow color, slight hazy, with a wisp of a fizzy head. Aroma of strong cinnamon with lends some toastiness and some tart apples in the background. The taste is tart apples, strong cinnamon. Medium bodied. Like a simple mulled cider, the cinnamon cames close to being overmuch, but this does end up being decently balanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance with no head. Kind of bland, light cinnamon red hot, mild pear/apple, light veggie, somewhat spicy aroma. Kind of juicy flavor but more like apple sauce with cinnamon and vanilla. Thereís a weird twangy note that I canít quite put my finger on, maybe wet noodles. Probably my least favorite cider from these guys but it is drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
355ml bottle, slightly gold pour. Smells like pier 1 if all the potpourri was cinnamon. Flavor is like red hots, totally weird cinnamon character to blend into a cider, some tart apple character which is strange in an AO cider but ovrall this isntí good. Too disjointed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Most of a 12oz bottle, which has been sitting in the fridge for several hours. Twist off cap. Clear golden yellow color. Virtually no head. Couple tiny dots of lace. Wow, such a big cinnamon aroma, the most and twiggiest Iíve ever had in any beverage of any kind, Iím pretty sure. Sipping this is like sticking your face in a 5 gallon container of ground cinnamon for 10 seconds. Cinnful, more like cinn-full. Itís very evident in the nose, and lasts long through the finish. As a fan of cinnamon, I actually like the aroma quite a bit and am pretty impressed by it. Big cinnamon works very well with the natural apple flavor of the cider. Taste is pretty sweet, though, a bit too sweet for me, with a lightly tart finish. Medium body. Lightly sticky. Lighter carbonation. Super long cinnamon-apple aftertaste. This is one of the most interesting ciders Iíve ever had. Held my attention the whole way through. The one drawback for me, itís a bit too sweet.

Bottle at Zoo Brew. Pours a clear very pale yellow with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma combines cinnamon and tart apple with a bit of backing sweetness. Flavor has a bit more sweetness and and cinnamon with a tart bite in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from a buddyís fridge; I think someone left it at the Super Bowl party a couple months ago. Pours a clear piss color with a tiny ring for a head. Delivers on its promise - tons of pure cinnamon spice and a balance of tart and sweet apple. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, sweet, tart, spicy mouthfeel. Not bad, actually. Some of the purest cinnamon flavor Iíve ever had in a beverage.
