12oz can pours a hazy orange with zero head. Nose is sweet, apples, candy, heavy spiced cider. Flavor is nice, sweet candy, mild clove, almost like apple sauce. Clean finish. Solid cider.

12oz. can purchased from Top Shelf Brews yesterday evening for $2.29. Pours a murky carrot orange. Aromas of cat piss, pears, tart apples, wine yeast nutrient, and vitamins. Tastes the same only with the addition of pineapple juice and papaya by swallow. Not bad.

On tap at Blaze. Pours a hazed to opaque brown amber. Soft acid and apples, faint yeast. Quite sweet, but not cloying. Tastes like fresh cider in the fall. Very light yeast, soft sweetness into the finish. Very nicely done sweet cider.

Can offering at Emma’s pizza in Cambridge..don’t drink much hard cider at all but had to try this..pours apple cider brown color..nice aroma of fresh pressed apples..hint of cinnamon..palate is well conceived..this tastes like quality fresh apple cider with a barely noticeable alcoholic presence..this is incredibly easy drinking..quite flavorful and is not chock full of artificial sweetness or sugars like other ciders I have tried..also impressed with being canned..would be nice to be able to find this and add to the occasional summer rotation for something new...nicely done..

On tap a Cohill’s. Cider is not my favorite so the rating may be low. It appears to be well made. Pours a hazy amber color and seems to be a pretty full bodied cider. A little to sweet for my liking but better than the big company ciders found at the convenience store.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz Can, purchased at Craft Beer Cellar - Belmont, MA. Cooked apple and apple juice aroma, backed with chemicals. Cloudy, low carbonation pour. Flavors are rough with a lot of baked out apples, still sweet cider, and giant jugs of discount apple juice. Strong preservative finish. Barely fermented cider. These would be giant can bombs, if they weren’t so full of sulfate and sorbate. Ugh.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 Best cider I have ever had. Blows away Woodchuck. Tastes like fresh cider from the orchard. My only complaint is that is is hard to find! Hopefully that will change once more people discover it.

On tap @ Meadhall in Cambridge.
Cloudy/unfiltered light brown. Served in a cute, branded mason jar w/ handle.
Smells of apple sauce.
Guessed Red Delicious apples in my notes. :P Juicy, slightly chalky & chunky texture. Low acidity & tartness. On the sweeter/fruitier side.
Very simple, fresh barn cider.
