BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Tart sour apple nose, fleshy, with a earth flavor that has that apple skin texture. A little more carbonation than the last, but very earthy and has a little more apple flavor. Still not one of the better ciders I have ever tried and not something I would pick up again.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
500 mL bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma has some lightly tart apple aromas along with some mustiness present. A bit perfume-like. Some mineral notes are also there. Pours a transparent pale straw color with a lively bubbly white head that dissipates very quickly. Very prickly and carbonated to start. Some sweet hints are present in there, but there is also a good deal of mineral flavors as well. Of course, this is followed by apple flavor. There is an uneasy ethanolic harshness mid-late. Finishes with more apple. Medium dryness is accurate. I don’t know, this just doesn’t float my boat.

Beerdedone (2743) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head and minimal lacing. Light sweet apple aroma. Flavor is sweet apple tartness with soft carbonation and a touch of honey. Light to medium body with a dry finish. A decent cider

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2008
50 cl bottle; BBE May 08. Very strongly attached crown cap. Light apple aromas with a touch of apple vinegar. Very pale golden color. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is slightly cooked apple with a touch of darkish apple skin. There’s also "fresh" apple juice. Good balance between sweet and dry. Finishes a tad tart. The sour seems to have been a passing phenomena. It is going very well with spicey food.

OldMrCrow (1951) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle; My first cider rating so presumably quite naive.

Pours light yellow and highly carbonated with bubbles gushing from the bottom of the glass, somewhat sour/vinegary aroma with sweet apple highlights. The flavor provides the expected apples but not quite the sour I had anticipated from the aroma; instead a syrupy sugar atop a tart base that certainly...takes some getting used. Sparkling highly carbonated mouthfeel is almost light despite the sticky sweetness. This one leaves me eager to try the dry instead.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2007
This is my first cider. 500ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow with light fizzy white head. Aroma is of apple and maybe a little yeasty. Flavor is tart, some citric lemon like qualities, and with a hint of sourness that seems just right. Finish is dry and fairly short. Man, I didn’t realize cider was this yummy. I think I’ll have to try others. Went back to the store and got another bottle already of this one.

Indra (2662) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
500ml bottle. Strongly sweet apple aroma, gently herbal and floral. Clear pale golden color with very slight visible carbonation. Equally heavy apple flavor, mingled with a strongly sweet tartness. Light and bubbly on the palate, body is light. Nice character here, a bit stronger in feel than the Dry.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 4, 2007
The 3rd cider in our flight at Indra’s Mead, Cider and Sake Tasting 8/31/07. The appearance is identical to the Suffolk Dry: clear bright golden yellow with virtually no head. The nose is much sweeter, however, making me think of an apple scented Riesling. Medium-bodied, slick and dry, the flavor is of sweet, tart apples and a faint alcohol. This is a nice cider, but I was still left wanting something more.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Very pale golden with lits of carbonation. A pleasant sweet aroma. A nice sweetness in the flavor with some honey notes. Medium body, tart, dry and lots of bubbles.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Third cider of the night at the Indra - Cider, Sake and Mead tasting 8/31/07. Identical appearance to the Dry - very clear golden yellow with a lot of carbonation. Aroma is apples and sweetness, though the sweetness is more ripe apples than anything. Taste is medium dry, sweet and really syrupy. Just mouth coating stuff.
