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.

2.1 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 isnt’ good. Too disjointed.

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. There’s a weird twangy note that I can’t quite put my finger on, maybe wet noodles. Probably my least favorite cider from these guys but it is drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
not sure how this got missed. This one is a bit of a guilty pleasure. Only have had it a couple times, and it is for sure a one trick pony (and that trick is strong enough to cover up any flaws) but I like the overuse of cinnamon. It’s what they were going for and it works.

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.
