2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 oz. can, consumed on 2-8-15. Not poured over ice (I believe on the rocks is the way Crispin recommends consumption). Sweet, floral aroma features scents of apple, honey, rose, and a touch of booze. It’s excessively sweet/fruity/floral for my tastes but pleasant enough. A touch of urine in the smell drops the score a bit, unfortunately. Pours a clear, pale gold with mild effervescence and very short-lasting, nearly white head. I struggle with how to rate the appearance of meads/ciders/perries/sakes, but this appearance falls short of that of a typical beer. The flavor is a touch tart and dry but mostly sweet. Apple juice and spoiled apple flavors. Light body. Very lightly carbonated. Easy to drink but insubstantial. This definitely is not as good as a typical craft beer. Off-putting in parts but mostly just not that appealing. Boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Poured a completely translucent pale golden yellow color with a very small haze to it. Not much of a head, some fizzy notes. Plenty of carbonation though. Aroma was sweet light cider. Watery apples. Pretty sweet, though not offensive surprisingly, I pegged it as something I wouldn’t like, but honestly would rather drink this than most of the macro stuff at a lot of non-craft parties I go to.

A sweet apple flavor with a flash of tartness. A clean appearance. A straightforward hard apple cider. Accompany with a rocking chair and a gentle breeze.

Not really a memorable cider. Weak flavor and aroma. Easy to drink, but so forgettable that it doesn’t even matter, you’ll take a second drink because you’ll literally have no idea what you drank a few seconds before.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly effervescent. Aroma of apple juice, sweet red apples. Taste is red apples with a hint of tartness and no booze. Thin and bubbly, easy, but nothing awesome.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transparent yellow with no head and very low level of carbonation. Really pleasant fresh apple aroma. A little less flavorful on the palate with sort of an off-dry character, not really what I’d classify as sweet or dry. Light body. Clean finish.
