Silver medal in the Commercial English style category at the 2012 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Five years ago when the orchard owner was considering apple cider varieties, he noted Dabinett as one of the most popular apples used in making English style ciders . Dabinett trees were planted in 2008 and in 2011 the first full crop of apples were harvested. The result is a semi-dry English style cider, deep gold and a little cloudy; typical for this style. Full bodied with light to moderate astringency. Pair with a cheese plate, roasted chicken and vegetables, or a pork roast.

Bottle via old toad, rochester. Cloudy light apricot color, thin white ring...fresh apple nose and fresh apple flavors... Nothing much weird going on but clean stuff...wish it had some funk but it don’t.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle split with Todd, dadouchey1. Pours a hazy straw color with no head. Aroma of apple juice, some alcohol. Taste is muted apple, honey. This was Todd’s idea, not mine. Meh. A pretty average cider.
