On tap at the local watering hole. Poured like any other crappy main stream beer with little to no head or lacing. Nose was sweet apple and wine. Taste was fizzy apple with dry finnish this brew was okay for one or two but becomes way to sweet and carbonated to drink any more than that.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Golden color with white head. Aroma is apples and spices. Flavor is sweet apples with some spices going on. This is a flavorful but easy drinking cider. Overall this is a good cider

I think this stuff’s pretty good. I found this on tap at Doc’s Pad in Eugene Oregon. It looks pretty dull in the glass. A bright golden yellow color that would be easy to mistake for a pint of piss lager if you’d already had a few. Nothing special. The taste is where this stuff stands out to me. It’s easy to drink and very sweet, which I like a lot. Not the best cider I’ve had but this stuff seems to be kind of trendy in the area right now.

Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is notes of apple juice, ammonia, candy sugar, plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. Man, if there’s one odor I love in cider, it’s ammonia. Crispin’s products are chock full of it. This one can’t quite match those ciders in terms of pure ammonia power, but it’s no slouch either. Seems like there’s sugar added to this too, or at least it smells like it. Pretty much just apple juice and unpleasant phenols otherwise. A total drain pour, but not QUITE as bad as I make it sound. Terrible but not horrific, if you get my drift. Crispin is horrific.

Crisp and refreshing, nice golden yellow color. Wonderful smell of green apple and overly sweet. Just hanging with my daughters..........:)!

달콤한 사과향. 좀 떫으면서도 단 사과 맛. 금색에 약간의 탄산.

I really wanted to like this but is reminded me of the sort of alcoholic beverage I might have tried to persuade someone to buy for me when I was 18. It has a lovely smell of candy and apples. The first gulp goes down easy, but the finish is where it ends for me. It has the aftertaste of plastic wrap.

Clean crisp taste. Almost like drinking apple juice with some carbonation. My favorite apple cider so far.

Pours the color of sippy cup apple juice. Fresh, sweet, and somewhat spicy apple aroma with some pear notes. Flavor doesn’t quite lend the spice that the nose suggests but that’s good. Freah apple meat, apple skins, with a mildly tart refreshing finish. Pretty juicy but tasty.
