Bottle to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes of tart, dry apples with a nice, dry finish. A solid cider.

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Clear yellow / orange color. No head. No lace. Medium body. More dry finish. Tart lightly sour taste, and sweet. Good... Apple flavor. Like apple juice, but maybe fresher-tasting, less musty, with more an acidic tart spicy bite to it. That spiciness in the finish is kind of nice, makes for an interesting twist that helps this cider stand out a bit.

355mL. Pours a clear, relatively still golden. No head, fizz. Nose is champagne white grapes, some chemical, plastic. Taste is relatively dry, clean, weaker champagne. Palate is sparkling, dry, a tad plasticky. Pretty intense green apple sourness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours like slightly fizzy apple juice. Taste is like a granny smith apple. Dry crisp and tart. Decent, but not something I would seek out again.

12 oz bottle bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours almost clear gold with no head, only a small ring of foam. Aroma is apple-y, but not extremely so, white wine-like. Taste is tart and dry. Carbonation is medium-high. Not bad.

From bottle. Mellow musky sweet cider aroma. Juicy apples with sugar and light alcohol. Dark amber dull clear with no head. Light watery body with medium-light carbonation. Tart crisp apple juice with light residual sweetness. Muted tart finish and after. Just a bit lactic in the after.
