Sample during the 10th Annual Day Before Labor Day Party on 09/06/2015. Clear apple juice color with a minimal white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of apples and spice. Light-bodied and under-carbonated with flavors of mildly tart apples and spice. The finish is fruity with semi-sweet apple aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Iím confused. Is this cidery based in North Carolina or Virginia? The guy said that they are from NC, but everything here says Virginia. Do they have two locations? I suppose that would explain it. Anyway, this was tasty, but kinda sweet.

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. Itís 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. Iím concerned Iíll be using this as my yard stick ... and not evaluating other ciders on their own merits.

Draft->shaker. Lite gold, apple juice, more sweet than dry. Ok when in the mood for a cider.

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.
