2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, highly effervescent pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is tart, green apple candy, read apple sweeness, hints of vanilla and fruity yeast. Flavor is more sweet and candy-like in flavor up front, but with a tart, Granny Smith and more well rounded Red Delicious-like sweetness in the middle, finish tastes like tart and sweet apple skins. The overall sweeness belies the tart, lightly acidic, nicely dry feel thoughout, well mingles to a sharp, but light and blanketing carbonation. Pretty nice all around. One

Tap at Capital Brewing in Middleton, WI. Sparkling white grape juice color. Green apple Jolly Rancher nose. Taste is the same: green apple artificial soda, Jolly Rancher, good acid, quenching, high soda level carbonation. Not my style for cider but no offensive.

Tallahassee, Fl - AB Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, slight haze, no head. Slight sourness to the aroma, not as apple-like as some ciders. Flavor is pleasantly sweet, some golden delicious apples, a touch of vanilla, hint of light spiciness. Crisp mouthfeel.

Smells and tastes like really good sparkling apple cider. I can’t believe there is even alcohol in this. Really sweet and heavy on the apple flavor. Medium body with a refreshing carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL. and shaker served, showing a hazed, light gold, almost straw color, with a presentable layer of white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was tart and fresh apple scent, slightly grassy, with a touch of sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with decent spritz to the carbonation, the taste was similar notes, sweet, yet lightly dry on the finish, which gave it a bit of British cider character. Basic, flavorful cider.

This is the best sweet cider out there. I’m a big fan, especially First Press. Hard to find but worth the effort.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is fresh and tart apples. The taste is the same. It has a nice dry and tart finish. This tastes fresh.

Flavor: The flavor is sweet apple, with some tart notes as well, yeast, hay, and a little grass
Palate: The body is light-medium, not watery, fairly clean, with a nice, mild dry finish
This is a pretty solid cider. Nice mouthfeel. It’s pretty solid, and hit me kinda right as I was feeling something a little sweet and a little tart.
