Bottle pours medium yellow with some golden color. Bubbly head. Great apple and yeasty aroma. Musty apple flavor but good. Nice compared to American ciders.

Bottle. Pale yellow with small fizzy head. Aroma of baked apples, cinnamon, and bit of barnyard funk. Flavor of cheese, apple, funk. Interesting tasting cider. I enjoyed this one.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a pale, slight green tinged body with a quick to fade white head. Aroma is minimal, with dry apples, tannins and newspapers. Taste is medium sweet with a neutral apple flavor up front. Midway through there is a note of bitter apple (mild though), and the finish is somewhat sweet. Taste is a bit like sweetened champagne. Lively carbonation with a good cider mouthfeel. Not cloying, which I feared. Actually a pretty enjoyable cider (despite the lower rating).

Sampled from "Medium English Cider" bottle at State Line. The pour was standard color and bubbly appearance, wasn’t expecting much. The aroma was apples, light spices and mustiness. The flavor was apples, spices, some oak, and some farmhouse elements, the latter which were quite welcomed. I’m learning that I can dig some ciders if they have some musty funky notes in them. Mouthfeel was dry, smooth. Good stuff, and thanks to Robert for this tasting!

Bottle enjoyed at Le Cave Du Vin in Cleveland. Clear champagne like pour with plenty of carbonation to match. Funky apple barn notes under the apple cider dominance in the aroma. Cider barn pressings kept coming to mind. Plenty of clean apple flavors with a touch of hard alcohol. Cinnamon and and a very enjoyable level of sweetness. Quenching and warming. Jen and I both enjoyed this.

smells a tad funky, the taste is sweet and flavorful with apples and sweet water. Its nicely fizz and very drinkable.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 The aroma is like wild yeast and apples with a light funky and musty smell. The appearance is light gold with no head. The flavor is tart and sweet with some funkiness. The palate is think but OK for a cider. Not the best for a cider.
