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.

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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours like weak champagne with a strong white wine aroma. Hints of apple and pear dominate the nose. Lively body, but too thin for my liking. A medium-bodied apple sauce flavor prevails amongst the pear and slight grape. Nice spreading of the flavors. Great cider. Iíd have this one again.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Pretty straightforward, tasty cider. It pours a very pale yellow body thatís filled with fast moving bubbles. Its small fizzy head lasts but moments. It smells of fresh tart apples with just a hint of sulfur. Full of tart apple flavor, thereís an almost citric sour quality to the dry finish. Refreshing.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Light yellow straw color with a taller fizzy, diminishing white head. Fresh bread yeast aromas which gain some barnyard scents as it warms along with white grapes and apple peels. Heavier in feel, but with enough zip to keep it lively. Sweet golden delicious apple and a touch lime juice. Simple flavors, but balance and quite drinkable. Not the normal soda cider here in N.A.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Pours a brilliant yellow gold color w/ a short lived, spritzy froth. Aromas of tart, wild apples, cedar, and a little granite. Light to medium nectar w/ ample, Champagne style effers although in the glass the liquid is still, no streamers at all. This killer cider actually tastes more like a slightly underripened nectarine w/ a little wild green apple. Itís tart upfront w/ a mild sweetness thats washed away by a moderate acid component. I donít think itís supposed to be balanced. The tartness and acid are quite bracing. Other nuances of cedar, vanilla, mango, kiwi, sodium, and sulpher. The finish is long and fluffy w/ mucho effers. This is a great after dinner sipper. Forget the apple pie, give me cider.

Tmoney99 (11479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottle. Poured light pale color with a minimall head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Light sweet apple aroma. Light body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Flavor of tart apple with a light sweet finish of short duration. Went well with my soup and salad.

Capa (2157) - Transient., - DEC 19, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Pours a translucent yellow with very little head. Carbonation is abundant and continues to fizz throughout. Aroma is of tart apples and some grape. Flavor is of tart apple. Finishes a little dry with some alcohol. Pretty good and easy to drink. Looking forward to trying more ciders.

vyvvy (4472) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Pours light yellow and is crystal clear with minimal head and very attactive carbonation. The aroma is predictably apples - fairly tart with bits of spice. Medium / thin body, but fuller than I expected and there was some fizzy carbonation. The taste starts with tart green and red apples with a alcohol bite. The finish has a bit more of an alcohol presence. A decent drink, although I am not too familiar with the style so take this as a novice rating. Very easy to drink and enjoyable.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Very nice, but I prefer the dry, myself. This seems like it could use just a touch more depth of flavor. Still recommended, but I would definitely choose the dry first.
