Aquilo (556) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Lovely golden color, no head, and not very bubbly. Aroma is nice, but a bit funky. Flavor is mildly sweet. Overall, I like it. It’s refreshing. Not the best stuff out there, but It’s good.

Tasty medium dry cider with slight carbonation. Enjoyable even though ciders aren’t my thing.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle from Keller’s IGA. Pours a clear, pale yellow gold that looks like a sparkling wine with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is fresh apples and yeast. Flavor is also apples and yeast. Tart and dry, but not too much of either. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing. Dry finish. Reminded me of champagne in appearance and palate.

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle. Clear, watered-down apple juice color with champagne head. Aroma is reminiscent of a green apple jolly rancher, only less cloying. Taste is very sour to start, with vinegar evening things out from middle to finish. No note of vanilla for me here, but this is more pleasant than some of my other cider experiences. Mouthfeel is very light, with just a slight viscous stickiness at the outset. Not bad.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Bright golden, mildly carbonated under a fizz-away white head. Aroma is vinous and heavy with green apple with a slight note of vanilla when poured. Flavor is balanced between sweet and tart, apple dominant with a splash of white wine. Smooth, slightly sticky, and not as acidic as some ciders can be. ~~~~~~~~~~ 500ml bottle from Lundeen’s, Sycamore, IL September 2007, consumed June 2009.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is red apples, yeast, light spiciness from the yeast. Taste is yeast, light apple, mild alcohol.

IrishBoy (3888) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 24, 2009
500 ml bottle from BevMo Salinas: BB Jul 09. Nose of nicely tart apples with a touch of sweetness mixed in. Pale yellow with a small pale white quick dissipating head. Flavor is light tartness, more sweetness, and apple pie. Pretty good cider.

Fresh apple aroma with some grape juice notes, Light, straw colored, not much bubbles/carbonation A light,but slightly tart apple flavour with a pleasant sour,medium-dry finish. Crisp and sweet and not overly dry. Quite a nice cider that goes down smooth.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Pours a lime greenish-yellow with a small foamy head that recedes quickly. Aroma is expectedly of sour green apples as well as vinegar. Nice flavor: Low acidity, very smooth body and finish. Mouthfeel is spritzy, with a smooth apple aftertaste that lingers for a moment. Probably the best apple cider I’ve had thus far. Overall, good.

cmonster (984) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2009
500 ml bottle poured in a flute. Straw in color with a short bubbly head that disappears quickly with no lace. Fresh apple aroma. Lively carbonated attack, watery mouthfeel, and tart apple flavor. Medium-length, slightly drying finish. Crisp, clean, and refreshing draft cider.
