3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 12-12-15. Pours a bright, brilliant, clear golden with many bubbles. No head. Most ciders don’t look good to me, but this one very much does. Scents of caramel apple and white wine. Lemon tartness in the flavor. Seltzer water. Somewhere between sweet and dry. Tart yet sweet apple like a Honeycrisp. Light to medium body. Lively enough. I’m not a big fan of hard cider, but this is a good one. Quite likable.

12 oz can. Pours a clear, golden color with no head and just some bubbles at the top where the head would be. The aroma shows a nice blend of sweet and crisp red apples to go with the tartness from some Granny Smith apples. Has almost a candy apple sweetness to it as well. The flavor follows with the sweet and crisp apples up front and balanced out the tartness of the Granny Smith apples. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a crisp, apple finish. Solid and tasty hard cider that is well crafted. Easily better than the mainstream Angry Orchard stuff.

Apples, a bit of honey in the middle, sour flavor towards the end. Not too sweet, but not overly dry either. Pretty good.

Pleasantly smooth and lightly tart cider from Tampa’s finest. A little herby chardonnay taste but not very challenging overall. Nice.

Normal, nothing special. A little bit of peel taste in there but nothing much to say Refreshing too.
