Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle corked and caged from Keg Liquor. Poured clear yellow color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of green apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Light sweet & sour apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.
