COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Traditional Dry cider is made in the style of English draft ciders. This cider is bittersweet and slightly spicy with a bright apple aroma. The dryness makes you pucker and look forward to another sip.

The aroma has much apple, and a small hint of cinnamon. The taste has the right level of tartness and, in keeping with its dryness, low sweetness. Itís not a great cider, but itís a good cider; definitely refreshing and pleasant.

Bottle. Pours clear, light orange with minimal white head. Aroma is a little faint, touch of apples. Taste is very light, crisp, not a ton of flavor. Decent.

355ml bottle. Golden pour, little head. This is dryer than the typical soda pop cidre but it does leave a sticky sensation as you go. Not offensive but donít believe the label.

Tap, gold pour, white head, nose is apples, taste is apples, pretty bland overall.

"lightest in color of the 3 AO ciders, and easily the lightest in aroma as well. Very traditional dry english cider. Bittersweet and pretty tasty. Simple. Nice, but my least favorite, if only because the othre two were so nice."

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Methinks the orchard is angry because its apples have been used to create such a dull drink. And the additives pretty well quash the usage of "traditional" on the label. A vigorous pour produces a bubbly yellow body, pretty pale, with a slender head that rapi9dly reduces to a ring. The aroma is light, some sweet apples with some of the skins. The taste is straightforward, sweet apples, much stronger than the nose. Not much here, but easy to down on a hot and muggy day.

Bulk_Carrier (2249) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 26, 2014
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. The appearance was the same in both glasses: glossy yellow color with a decent transparency about it to allow bubbly carbonation to be seen rising pretty fast. The smell had some sweet apples with a decent crisp dried pears in the background. The taste was mainly the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a mediocre sessionability as this had a harsh vinous quality about making it hard to put down the ol gullet. Overall, another strike out. I donít think I could return to this.

ttutony (700) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Transparent golden color, no head. Sort of a slightly fermented apple aroma, not super strong. Decent dryness, slightly sour. Pretty good overall, not overly sweet but also not super dry either.

Bottle: Golden, good clarity and topped with an inch of white head. Good apple notes in the nose and taste, carbonated well. Refreshing.

Decent cider but i am still figuring out how to rate them. Pale yellow pour no head slightly fizzy. Light apple nose. Sweet and apply a bit sour.

Golden pour. Nose of dry tart apple, with a slight tinge. Flavor is overly sweet apple, slightly tart, with a trail minerals. Meh.
