1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, 355ml at a Wetherspoons. Fizzed yellow gold with no head. Ooh this was sweet, cloying perfumey, spurious apple flavour. More alco pop than cider. Pretty bad.

Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with no head, though some fizzy white bubbles attempt to form but disappear within seconds. Aroma is apple and light earthy notes. Flavor is apple with a light tartness and a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Clear yellow cider with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is of sweet pear and fallen apples. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a sweet-tart marriage of Red Delicious and McIntosh apples in a 3/2 ratio. Crisp, moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish.

Tap @ The Mayor of Old Town Foco. Transparent, golden appearance with a small white head. A bit tart, sweet apple juicy aroma. Very juicy, red apple, somewhat dry flavor. Too juicy for me.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a bit of an attempt at a head. Aroma of sweet apples, apple juice, some graininess. The taste is apple juice, apple skin, a faint bit of bitterness. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355mL from a house party. Clear deep golden. Weak to no foam. Nose is plastic, weak apple pie, pie crust. Taste is tangy, lactic, sweet apple pie, heavy children apple juice. Acidic, tangy palate. Sour, refreshing but ultimately a juice box.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale amber pour. The nose is quite sweet and appley. Gets cloying with a touch of soft pepper and some sticky sugary character with a bit of lingering artificial acidity. Meh.

Has a bit of creeping tartness but overall this is pretty crappy hard cider.
