Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle at Stone, after a person with questionable taste returned the bottle, saying it was no good. "Yer dumb", I say. Light gold/amber with tiny to no head. Get the sweetness of a cider, with a chewy woodiness. Great movement around the mouth. Much more complex than other ciders I’ve had. Yummy.

Reid (1806) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22 oz bottle from "Trader Joes" in Salem OR $5.49 Light gold beer with carbonation strings and an initial small bubbly white head..lasts 10 seconds. Aroma of semi-sweet cooing apple and some floral hop. OK Taste same as the aroma maybe the apples are now more granny smith and the hops mingle well. Mouth feel not the greatest due t the sweetness it becomes cloying at the end. If this had been a drier cider it would have helped. Ok cider the hops kinda work.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Fizzy whitish yellow, and very still in appearance. Aroma is light, with a slight whiff of alcohol, and taste is the same. Purely insipid.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Very pale blond color with almost no head. Some aroma of apple and plastic, light, and acidic; light hazelnuts. Dry and weak mouthfeel; light cider flavor, a bit of cider vinegar, with light acidity; the final is lightly bitter, vegetable.
It feels like drinking Swedish face ciders.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear bright yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Sweet perfume of apple, grape, and citrus to the aroma and taste with a smooth apple cider finish and a thick sticky palate. Quite good.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle at Meridian Pint. Clear yellow color, rare bubbles. Aroma of lightly dusty apple skins. Aroma of bittersweet apples, white pepper. OK. I don’t get a lot of the hops character, unless it’s the pepperiness.

Syzzer (572) - Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2013
7-27-13 Poured from bomber: Easy to drink. Moderately sweet apple aroma. Delicate bitter hops ballances the sour/sweetness. Clear yellow color, weak white head. 8.5 BD; 8.8 Josh Aroma, color, flavor- what you expect, good. 9 Melissa

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a clear golden with minimal fizzy head and a lot of carbonation. Aromas of tart apples and dish soap. Taste is initially sweet, then tart, and finishes with the slightest of hop bites. The bitterness is like a substitute for a dry finish. Nothing is overbearing to this, and it all works well together. Light-medium bodied and goes down easy. I wish they sold 6 packs of these, I would buy this more often.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Tap at Breakside, PDX, 25/05/13. Clear blonde with no head, carbonation evident. Nose is apples, sugars, hint of booze. Taste comprises bitter apples, earthy/grassy qualities, sugar. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp dry finish. Ok cider.

tcane7 (1577) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting. Pour a clean gold with no head or lace. Nose of green apples, citrus, pine. Well carbonated, all apple up front with a slight note of hops on the finish. Dry. Not bad for a cider.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bomber from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours clear gold, champagne colored with minimal head and a requisite champagney level of carbonation, although not quite as much bubbling. Nose was apples, tart, mild hops. Tasted crisp, dry, like a cider/white wine/champagne triple hybrid, and a dry finish. Interesting.
