3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Corked 25.4 OZ bottle for $1.39 @ Bargain Market. Hazy deep golden/orange in color. Much darker than most ciders I’ve tried. Slightly sweet apple nose with a hint of tartness. Sweet up front with a really nice crisp apple flavor to it. Slightly tart finish. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Best Before 03.2013. Pours with a pretty deeply golden hued body (crystal clear) with a moderate white head that fizzes away. About as deep in hue as I’d possibly want my maltiest West Coast IPAs to get. Aromas are of apple, lightly funky, clove phenolics, a touch of sulfur, brett, slightly chlorophenolic: Normandy Cider bandaid character (light). Mild sweetness, light acid. Flavors are really pretty sweet, with a chlorophenolic smokey and band aid finish. Lightly bacony and residual sweetness in the finish. Very sugary upfront, medium apple character, light sulfur. Honestly it is missing complexity. Medium bodied, slightly sticky with lively carbonation. Forced Carbed bottle. Not my thing as far as ciders go.

Aroma is slightly tart/mostly sweet apples and fruit, while appearance is a bit darker than most ciders. The flavor is sweetness, slightly funky yeast and finishes with a mix of tartness and slightly dull.

Delicious apple cider. Aroma was good. Sweet apple and notes of must. Pour was medium gold and bubble with a two finger white head. Taste was very sweet in the beginning. The strong apple flavor turned dry in the finish. Very strong carbonation. Loved it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with thin white head. Medium body with medium-high co2. A nice amount of brett funkiness, but with no acidity, and a fair amount of sweet juicy apple character.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Light carbonic gassy tart with apple juice and skins. Dark amber clear with thin head. Medium body with high carbonation. Sweet sweet cider with nice juicy flavor and sulfury funky sweet after. Has fairly typical cider elements, but quite sweet and a bit odd in some ways.

The cider pours a medium orange color with a very bubbly, airy white head. The aroma has a ton of sweet apples in it and smells pretty nice. The flavor is pretty much straight apples and not too much else. The cider is fairly sweet. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red delicious apple, earthy caramel, lovely band aid. Clear sparkling bronze. Very sweet and singular in its apple profile, brought down a bit from the barnyard funk. Lacks depth.
