Sample at the tap room. Pours a pale yellow color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apples and spice. Light-bodied with a mildly tart apple character and notes of spice and malt. The finish is fruity with an apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at Cigar City Tap Room (Tampa, FL). Pours a striking golden yellow hue, firm bright glow, transparent body. Some loose bubbles, small whitish head laces small. Aromas are apples, honey, touches of Champagne like dryness assault the nostrils quickly, making me immediately think this might be right up my alley. Gentle honey, earth, bread and green apples give a hint of tartness. Initial is a bit tart, dry, green apple feel. Middle shows some sweetness, gentle honey, applesauce, red apples, and some bready malts. A touch of vanilla, sweeter honey sticks a touch. Backend is mellow earthy herbal feel, sweeter apples, gentle honeycrisp and light honey sweetness. Touch of dryness up front trails off into a mellow sweet finish. I liked the nose and front end, backend loses me a bit, a touch sweet. Solid cider. Peters out a bit for me, nose promising a more dry and touch tart feel but kinda losing it’s way as it presses on.

Draft with Andrew, Maggi and Geoff. Pours a clear golden body with no head, some minor white lacing. Aroma is sweet apple. Mouthfeel is crisp and light with notes of apple - not too artificial tasting and would serve as a better option to something like magners or strongbow.
