[1052-20080115] 341mL (w/ jerc). Floral sweet apple barrel aroma. Clear, light yellow body with no head but lots of bubbles. Light slightly browned apple flavour. Light body is watered down. Not a favourite.

jercraigs (7813) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle courtesy of OKBeer. Yellow body, fizzy white foam fades fast, light alcohol as it warms. Musty straw and apples in the aroma. Lightly tart musty dusty straw, very mild apples with tart sour finish. Average palate for a cider. Its not unpalatable, pleasant and quaffable, and I feel like I am under rating it a bit but do not see where I would add more points.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
CapFlu (4524) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
(Bottle) From OKBeer. Pours a thin white head that settles to the glass’s edge. Body of a a clear light yellow-green. Nose is very sweet and almost has an ice cider warm, brown sugar and brandy aroma. Very carbonated and tart. The dry, tartness causes a knee-jerk scowl. The flavour is very unexpected. I find this cider more pleasing in the aroma but the sour apples are a good deviance from the ordinary.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2007
341 ml bottle. Effervescent pale straw colour with a quickly diminishing fizzy white head. Fresh sweet apple and tart skins, light brown sugar, and cinnamon aroma. Dry, tart apple skin flavour - almost too dry with only a touch of sweet apple "meat" to balance the dryness. Light bodied, fizzy but refreshing mouthfeel also helps to balance the dry and tart flavour and saves this from heading to a baking soda-like finish. Not bad as a refresher and has some subtle complexity, presumably from the multiple (I believe 8 different) apple varieties they use to make it.
