0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is light notes of ammonia, plastic, Silly Putty, hint of citrus zest. Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is trace sweetness, moderately acidic, unclean. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. Hard to pick the "winner" between this and Eden Ridge, but no matter which you choose for a special evening, you can be certain to be wildly disappointed (you’ll probably even be angry). Almost no aroma at all, and what’s there is mostly chemicals. Very light bodied, watery, acrid, fizzy, dirty, and astringent in the mouth. One of the absolute worst ciders I’ve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 750 ml bottle into a flute. Bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum. My first cider rating. Pours an extremely pale yellow--almost as clear as water (close to hue-less, actually) with a large crackling white head that dissipates into a ring fairly quick. Aroma is tart apples and minerals. Smells like a Sauvignon Blanc. Taste is mostly tart with a good share of sweetness. There’s some sense of overripe fruit here, but mostly it tastes crisp and fresh. Carbonation is soft. Seems good to me, but I’m no cider expert.

It looks super watery. It’s very light on the tongue. A bit of a tang to it. The dryness is long and pleasing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Passable cider more in line with the British style through intense dryness.
