3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 750 ml bottle. The body is medium gold with a thin white head. The aroma is woody with some tart apples. There is also a little bit of earthy nutmeg. The body is light with a small amount of carbonation. The taste is lightly tart, but truns dry immediately. There is a little bit of apple core in here. A decent cider with a little bit of a vinous character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled on 9/15/07: Pours a transparent pale golden with a nicely-lacing spotty white head. Aroma of fresh tart apples and a touch of sweet fruitiness. Body starts lightly sweet with good crisp tartness and apple flavor toward a thinner, but very drinkable finish. A nice cider.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I like ciders. They were good to me when the ABV law in GA was 6%. Poured a clear light golden yellow color. Crisp sweet apple aroma of both red and green apples. Sweet and full. The flavor was lightly acidic. Sweet apple start with a crisp dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale straw colour, some apple skin tannins. Dusty and dry with a fairly crisp tartness. Lean body. Very fizzy and tart. Light wildness with some late dryness. Another lovely cider from Farnum.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to JoeMcphee for sharing. Completely clear, Bud Light, macro yellow color. Aroma is alcoholic apple, were the alcohol is just enough to be felt but not overpowering. Taste is really not sweet with just hints of cider. A very fizzy mouthfeel but works well here. Aftertaste is light granny smith. And when they say extra-dry, they really do mean it. A nice experience, I may give this cider thing more of a try.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to JoeMcphee for sharing - clear, light gold, headless cider - earthy apple skin aroma, with some white wine-ish tannins - mouth-puckering, tongue-lashing dry quality, with a hint of lambic-like wildness well contained in the background - I’d take this over champagne any day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy boboski. Clear gold with just a few white bubbles. Simple, yet enjoyable, flavor and aroma of sour apple skins and musty yeast. Dry finish. Body is medium/light with balanced carbonation. Very easy to drink. Underrated at 2.76.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked & caged. Very very light, a profusion of bubbles cataracts through the body momentarily, then all is still. Oaky, light apple nose, hint of grapiness; yes, this is going to be dry-champagne-dry. Flavor does not let me down, this is very very dry, mouthpuckering at the end, but still quite fruity throughout. Slightly peppery and alcoholic at the end, quite acidic. The link between dry champagnes and gueuzes? Perhaps not quite bold enough to be truly great, this is nonetheless one of the more interesting, challenging ciders I've had, not for those that regularly chug their 6ers of Woodchuck.
