COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp refreshing natural hard apple cider. Crisp over ice. A classically styled, but untraditional hard apple cider. Fruit forward, with a fresh, crunchy appley nose and a deliciously creamy, refreshingly crisp mouth feel.

HonkeyBra (3371) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Sampled as one of the last beers left at the end of the Naperville Ale festival. It pours a clear watery pale yellow with visible carbonation. Aroma of apple juice. Tastes like carbonated apple juice. Not very impressive, but unoffensive. This is a macro cider that wont turn people off to ciders, but will probably not make them interested in ciders either.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Pint at Local Cantina. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet apple and sugary sweetness. Sweet apple flavor up front, giving way to some tartness before a dry champagne finish.

Honestly it isn’t thaaaat bad. Tart and candy like. Seems like a precursor to reeds.

Fresh flavor and tart apple. Palate is tacky and tart after. Pour is very light and crystal clear.

Ed5388 (2089) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a fizzy light pale yellow color. Aroma of sweet sugary apple juice. Taste of sweet sugary apple juice, Splenda, and some tartness.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Pale straw color, wispy thin white head. Very sweet, mild aroma, taste too. This one is just too sweet. No balance, needs more tartness and dryness, as it is, it tastes like slightly fermented apple juice.

EtTuCthulhu (1047) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2014
The color is a light yellow with a white ring around the top of the liquid, and the aroma blends a not-too-heavy apple scent with a heavier current of yeast. The taste is slightly sweet and slightly sour, leaving a very crisp and tart flavor in the mouth despite how light it is overall. The palate fuses a light body, slick texture, dry finish, and a flat carbonation.

kramer (4943) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold body with a small fizzy white head that completely vanished. The nose is very apple juice like with just a bit of skins and some flowery notes. The flavor is on the drier side with a lot of crisp apple juice and some lighter baked apple notes. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with lots of fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty decent I suppose, but nothing that really makes it stand out from the majority of other ciders.

ROBC3366 (650) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Tastes nice and well balanced between slightly dry and tart but too softly carbonated for me. Would be great a bit more bubbly. Still a solid cider.

bottle. very pale golden with small head. pretty straightforward. good balance of sweet and tart, but nothing really unique here. i prefer some of the other crispin varieties to this one.
