2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nose is very cider heavy. Smells fresh. Taste is quite phenolic and a bit peppery. Earthy. Very dry finish. Taste hard to get past.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is notes of apple juice, caramel, light notes of beef broth and plastic, hint of fusel alcohol (bug spray). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. Well, Iíll be darned, one of the few Crispins Iíve tried with no trace of ammonia. Some fusel alcohol in the background, and other mild off notes, but no ammonia. I mean, sure, itís still an ultra-simple apply juicy cider with zero allure, but considering most of their products score under 1.0, this was better than expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. A medium gold colored body with a bright white head. A light Granny Smith tart nose with some rich floral notes. This tastes lightly sweet with some green apples. This finishes like artificial sweetner and green wood. There is a little bit of straight sugar quality to the finish. This is ok, but nothing to seek out.

500ml can from Fred Meyer in S.Salem OR.
$8.99 per 4 pack.
Pours a darker than usual gold,initially a nice sized bubbly white head..that goes fast but leaves a good ring/lace.
Ok aroma.. apples and real ones.
Nice dry not to sweet taste, leaves a pleasing cooking apple bitterness in the end.Slight sourness that is nice.
Quite nice on the palate..better than most ciders.
Nice cider and very drinkable..i like my ciders dry and this delivers.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the Davis Co-Op. Pours orange tinged gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is much more like fresh apples than most ciders. Itís a little earthy - maybe thatís the brett. Near med body. Flavor is a little earthy, very apple skin astringent. Quite dry. Overall a pretty tasty cider for pasteurized.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Basic cider with a red apple flavor. Clean and crisp. It is somewhat dry. Basic drinking, but nothing that would "wow" you.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It is called Brownís Lane? That is funny - I thought it said Brouwijlane or something Dutch like that. Typically non-existent aroma. Cute light orange pour and a decent-looking label. The flavor is dry, as advised, but not very interesting - it is pleasant enough, with a very light, lemony sulfur tingle. Like lots of ciders, it is not bad but nothing to get excited over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint can. Poured clear, brighter golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up tangy apple cider with white pepper, clove, and fruity Brett accents. The flavor found tart apple skins with complementary white wine character.. not too substantial across the middle, but there was green apple essence.. finished rate and refreshing with more apple skins and wine. Lighter-bodied with tight, prickly carbonation on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. nice one.
