Very crisp, fairly dry through the finish. Not very sour, not too sweet. A nice balance.

Bold Rock Hard Apple Cider on tap is my preference for drinking this exceptional hard cider from Nelson County, Virginia. Crisp, refreshing start to this thinly textured cider. Clear, pale & sparkling. No head here--thank you! I want to get straight to THIS thirst quencher with its light body and soft carbonation. It’s touch of sweetness is balanced by a hint of tartness. Not bitter or astringent, but an exceptionally clean finish. It has become my favorite hard cider. I’m concerned I’ll be using this as my yard stick ... and not evaluating other ciders on their own merits.

12 fl. oz. bottle picked up at the general store of Franklins Brewery, Hyattsville MD. Yellow golden in the glass, high carbonation. Fresh light herb apple at the nose. Starts with fresh sweet apple. Later a little bit thinner but always sweet apple. Okay.

Better than the other one I just had. Some apple here, ok package but a little too sweet still. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours the color of apple juice with a thin white head. Smells a bit like apples. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Finishes with a fair amount of tartness. Kind of boring.

Serving: Bottle from a friends Charlottesville trip. It pours a solid yellow color with no head. The nose smells of straight apple juice. Pretty sweet. Good sweet cider though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the DC Craft Beer Festival. Poured a very pale light yellow-green color, clear, virtually no head. Aroma was a lot of sweet apples, crispness. Not too sweet, but not too dry. Easy to drink. Actually quite enjoyable to me.
