On tap at Bold Rock.
Taste is apples, light dirt/earth/dust. Dry, drinkable but not memorable (to me).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Snallygaster 2014. Poured a light, pale green-yellow color with almost no head to speak of. Aroma was some tart apple. Flavor was apple flavors, sweet apple juice. A little dry, but too sweet - probably would be a bigger hit with people who like the most sweet varieties of cider that are less dry like champagne.

Bottle sample at the source. Clear pale yellow color, champagne head and bubbles. Aroma of apple skins. Taste is indeed dry apple skins, dry finish. My favorite of the bunch.
