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.

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.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
1/4/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Clear golden pour. Weird aroma... Has hints of a certain poopiness. Hard to explain, but hopefully someone will know what I mean... Itís like when saliva dries on the end of a pen or something and it has that weird poppy aroma. Ahem. Anyway, also touches of sourness and cinnamon. Whoa, the flavor is a different story. Cinnamon. Holy shit. Cinnamon bomb, some apple in there. Drain pour. This is awful, glad I bought a single.

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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, twist-off. Nose is apple with Cinnabon-type sugar and cinnamon, and I donít think they mesh well. Pale clear yellow body with absolutely no head, almost no carbonation. Taste is a sweet and mostly apple but cinnamon plays at maybe 60% strength, and the match is much better here. Tart with no bitterness. Medium body essentially clean and somewhat refreshing even for its stillness. Biggest negative here is how this doesnít taste natural, a hard one to overcome.
