100ml bottle. Clean clear apple juice color with a few clear bubbles. Nose is rich apples, like an orchard on a crisp fall day. Flavors of apple sugars and light skins. Palate is thick with tannins and is very sticky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[6245-20140415] Mini bottle. Metallic apple skins aroma. Clear, gold yellow body with no lasting head. Boozy astringent apple sauce flavour has a lingering bitter apple pip woody aftertaste. Medium body. Average, a little too bitter pip for me. (7/3/7/3/14-) 3.4

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle at franks. Pours an orange golden body. Aroma is sweet candied apples. Mouthfeel is sweet and sugary with notes of Apple and sugar. Pretty one dimensional but few ice ciders have ever been bad.

PhillyCraft (3429) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Tiny bottle at Franks. Most of us took a swig of this on our way out the door. Golden color with not much head or lace. A little overly sugar apple forward with too much of a skin bite. Still enjoy most ice ciders but this was a little unbalanced.

100 ml bottle. Clear honey brown with a few bubbles. Nose is intense apple, bubblegum and faint plastic. Syrupy, lightly sticky with a soft tang. Taste is sweet and tart apple and peel with an earthy note that counters some of the sweetness.

2014-04-15. Crisp golden yellow body, headless, syrupy legs on the glass. 3++ Aroma is sweet, syrupy with a twig like apple stem and seed note, fruity apple. 7++ Flavour is quite sweet, fruity apple core, mild acidity in the finish keeps the it from becoming cloying but the sugary apple sweetness comes back in the aftertaste leaving sweet apple juice and apple sauce like flavours in the mouth. Notes of apple skins and tannins in the background grow as it warms up. Syrupy smooth medium to full bodied palate is uncarbonated. Not super complex but richly sweet and pretty tasty. Tiny bottle purchased in May 2013 from East Shore Vineyards, Burlington, VT

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Tiny bottle, awwwww! Deep golden colour. Aroma is sweet apple juice, slightly oxidized. Sweet cooked apple flavour, very sticky, but lacking further depth of character. Unpleasant chemical-tannic note in the finish.

Bottle shared by Steve. Pours clear gold. Nose/taste of sweet caramelized apples and confectioners sugar. Thick and sweet on the palate. Smooth.

Pouring at the Applepalooza event at the Astor Center. Pours a clear gold. Big and sweet, sticky apple sugar all over it. Light acid, smooth and sweet. Lovely, soft sugar, sweet apple. Picks up a tannic apple peel note. Very nice.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 6, 2011
One of those ridiculous tall 500mL bottles, poured at CiderDays 2011. Aroma is a strong with a clean fresh apple. Body is incredibly, incredibly sweet. There’s not enough residual acidity for balance, and the wretched Honeycrisp gives a vapid and shallow flavor base.
