3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a hazy pear color with a runaway white head. Nice aroma of ripe apple - like a golden variety. Medium body with mild carbonation. Starts sweet and then goes through a series of changes ending up like golden delicious skin. So somewhat tart in the finish. Tasty drink. One of the better ciders Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour. Nice head. The nose is quite interesting. Lots of bright citrus character and a little bit of light soft spiciness. A kiss of light maple and a touch of light tartness. Softly fruity with a nice light mintiness and a touch of clove as well. Soft soft fruitiness with a nice balance of apple fruit and yeast spice. Funnily enough Ė I always thought something like this would work, but this is the first time Iíve seen an example of it. Itís really quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a hazy pale golden body and a fading white head (leaves a ring). Aroma of oddly phenolic yeast. Estery. Very dry with light hints of adjunct (read syrup) sweetness. A touch of plastic and fusel. A bit of raisiny and pear fruit esters on top of the [needless to say] apple character. A bit of Macintosh. Flavor is somewhat sweet. Lots maple character in the flavor that isnít in the aroma. Somewhat nutty as well. Crisp fruit flavor. Somewhat dry finish. Pretty nice actually. Light bubbles. Very decent.
