COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited run cider, of more than 150 kegs, was produced in June 2011 from exceptional hand picked apples. We simply call it cider. It’s a dry, tart fully fermented cider and comes in at 5.5% alcohol by volume. This is real cider, not the sugary sweet alko-pop stuff you may be familiar with!

On tap at Johnny Brendas. Aroma is very light apple and slight dishwasher detergent. Pours super light blond with light carbonation and no head. Taste is light bitter pear and baking soda. Bitter mouthfeel but at the same time, very thin and dry. Bitter finish. I did not like this at all.

Clear golden colored body, thin fizzy head. Faint apples, champagne yeast, too much malic acid coming through. Light bodied, semi-dry, lingering,off finish.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2013

Twelve ounce bottle from the Northern Liberties Foodery in Philly. Poured into a rounded pint glass.
Clear bronze body. Soda fizz.
Smells of gummi bears, fragrant perry, & plastic.
Tastes of boiled apples, peel, stems, & all. Saline. Watermelon rind bitterness. Banana-ish esters mixed in with some residual yeasty quality towards the end. Dry, but more acidic & not at all tart or crisp. Harsh forced carbonation seems to be to try & fill those gaps.
A bit to anemic for me.

Bottle at P house, clearish yellow golden with no head or lacing. Notes are champagne yeast, wine wine, and oak. No apples detectable, super dry and vino’d out. Not a fan.

Thanks to my beer buddy cheap, I have to agree it does taste like his homemade cider. Pale yellow, no head. I like the fact that it doesn’t taste like a soda pop, has cider, apple taste. Nice change once in a while.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear golden straw pour. Minimal head. Full but very dry. Good, but better as a mix.

DocLock (7920) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours pale gold with no head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is dry earthy apple. Tastes very dry, with a decent apple flavor, a lot of carbonation; comes off like a dry champagne/apple wine hybrid. Crisp finish.

reggiedunlop (3121) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a clear very pale yellow with no head...looks like champagne with no head...lively. Aroma has mild apple and white wine notes...slightly champagney. Flavor follows suit...definitely lends itself to a cheap champagne. Mouthfeel is light and lively...finish is dry and white wine/appley.
