2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the grocery story.
Light, slightly hazy pour that darkens and thickens somewhat as I work my way through the bottle. Apple juice nose, strong red apple skin flavors. Relatively sweet, a bit of alcohol flavor, this one isnít working for me. I donít understand the high ratings. .

Bomber. Pours clear straw yellow with no head. Aroma of sweet apples and not much else. Flavor is a pleasant balance of sweet and tart with a finish slightly on the drier side. Crisp, clean, pleasant drinking.

not sure of the age - pretty nice overall with a slightly different yeastiness not usually present. Donít know that Iíd be able to tell it was pils yeast if the bottle didnít tell me, though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Milky gold with some floaties (itís a bit old). Mostly clean apple flesh and skin in the aroma, on the sharp side with tartness a la granny smith, doughy yeast, lemony citrus and light spice. Fairly sweet, decently tart. Medium bodied, softer, drying toward puckering with tart apple on the end, perhaps some earthiness and hay too. Decent cider, held up for a long time. Canít say the pilsner yeast does much other than let the clean apple shine through.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market..in S.Salem.
Pours a cloudy pale golden colour..no head.lively carbonation.
Very strong fresh red apple aromas, slight yeastiness. Nice.
Nice balanced flavour..not too sweet. The pils yeast comes in at the end and makes this real drinkable.
Nice semi-sweet mouth feel.

650ml bottle. hazed light godl pour. Aroma is sweet apples and honey. Flavor is mild and sort of crisp, earthy, and tart. Decent amount of sweetness. It is very smooth and easy going, maybe an attribute of the lager yeast.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy yellow color with no head. A sweet grainy apple nose. The flavor is quite pleasant with apples,sweet sugars, some pils malt, more super sweet apples. This is a very solid cider. The overall brew is super drinkable and quite tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of crisp and sweet apples, with a little funk. Taste is medium-heavy sweet and light tart . Follows aroma, with lots of bready yeast in the finish. Loads of fresh apples in here. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Pretty darn good, not an everyday cider but something I would enjoy again.
