3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, purchased at Whole Foods in Madison ($6). Poured bright gold with a soapy thin head; low-moderate carbonation. Nice apple aroma, some grassy & lightly funky aromas as well. Sweet-dry, light sour funkiness in flavor, herbal. Dries out at the end, but not to the extent of some ciders, as it still leaves sweetness. Nothing special, but I always like trying whatever ciders I can get my hands on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Alla Spina - sample. Pours a clean light gold with thin, quickly dissipating white head. Nose of apple, citrus. Medium body. Light carbonation with a pretty dry finish. Not bad for a cider.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit weird. Kind of like a half white wine half cider. Very vinous with vibrant apples. Like Sauv and sparkling apple juice. Solid

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Clear light blond colour, not much head. Aroma is bit weird, bread, touch of apples, quite boozy. Taste is similar, apple and booze, bit of minerals, bit of plastic. Spritzy. Should probably have some nicer cider.

bought mostly for the funky bottle and I wanted to try some real english cider. clear and golden color. Aroma was a lot more funky tart than i expected. Mkaes me wonder what yeast is used in this. Taste is mildly sweet with a touch of pummis or sulfer. Tartness on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small tulip at home, served cold. Pale white wine colour, gentle carbonation. Apple and gooseberry flavour, with a bit of tart bitterness. However, once again, I found the palate of an Aspall’s cider dull and insipid. Won’t buy again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden. Ripe red apples, some barnyard funk, a bit of hay. Body is dry, slight tart. A bit of rhubar-apple pie, slight funk. Quite nice, deceivingly easy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a bit of fizz. Fairly dry, a bit of tartness. Earthy, dirty, banana, apple. Not a standout cider, though.

Bottled. Pours pale golden in color. Light funky notes, sweet apple notes and perhaps some light spices as well. Apples mixed with some light barnyard notes in taste. Quite good actually. Light vanilla spicy and tart apples in aftertaste.
