Thanks Lonnie. Bottle. Deep gold colored brew with traces of a bright white head. The nose is rich apple and wood. There is also flowers and a hint of spice like cinnamon. The taste is bright and clean with lightly tart apple. There is a hint of musk and wood in the finish. Nice and not too sweet.

12oz twist-off bottle, blue label. Clear gold color. No head. Aroma of apple candy. Sweet and full of apple aromas. Tastes sweet with the right amount of tartness. Tastes just like supermarket apple juice. A little too sweet for my tastes, but should sell well. (Sampled side-by-side with Angry Orchard Traditional Dry)

I think sammy adams is coming late to this show, no? Very mild alky apple aroma. Seems to still have some unfermented sugar in there. Yes, goes down easy and it has a tad of that waxy feel to it, which is remenicescent of good ice ciders. Decent experience without much tummy burn fir a sweeter drink. Doesn’t look like anything special except for pale yellow with no fizz. Does have good tingly co2 on the tongue tho.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of apples. Taste is, you guessed it, apples. It's good if you are into the ciders, I would prefer a nice stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at TGI Friday’s (gross) in Pigeon Forge, TN. Pours a crystal clear, pale golden colored body with no head and only a trickle of lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly tart apples with a light sweetness and crispness. Flavor is similar. Slightly crisp and tart apples up front with a light sugary sweetness in the middle. Finishes clean and slightly dry with a light tartness and sweetness. Medium length aftertaste following a light, pretty crisp body and a light, sparkling carbonation. Overall, not a bad cider and I’m kind of surprised, actually. Fairly sweet, but slightly tart and mostly crisp. Nothing special, but certainly not bad.

Bottle @ 18th RG. Yellow with white dissipating head. Smells sweet and sour in an off way-reminds me of babies. Taste follows.

Sampled at the at 18th Richmond gathering. Clear yellow pour with ring of clearish white head. Sweet and clean apply nose. Flavor is not as sugar as woodchuck, but similar. As far as ciders go, its okay.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was apple juice mainly, not much else. Flavor was striaght apple juice from concentrate, but with some extra added sugar. Too sweet for me.

Bottle. One sniff and it’s obvious -- Jolly Rancher Green Apple! The kind I used to form around my teeth as a sort of sucrose-laden retainer. Ah, childhood. That said, it looks all right. Very sweet on the palate, with a mouth-watering astringency that cuts through the sweetness like a katana through Velveeta. Slightly frizzante. Finishes warm and a little omnipresent. All right.
