COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale gold, light, bubbly, with a stroke of sweetness along with the tart, bitter, and fruity elements that good hard cider offers. A clean, light "quaffing" cider, but don't put it away it too fast! Alcohol content 6.5% by volume. Available in 750 ml bottle with crown cap or 5-gallon keg. Our Farmhouse recalls the refreshing, low-alcohol "ciderkins" or "small ciders" of centuries past. Cooling in summer, warming in winter, and companionable with most foods.

Sampled during Bengals Tailgate 12/13/15. 750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Totally clear golden color. Ring of white head, few bits of lace. Nice mildly tart apple, and a great bit of farmhouse funk, pretty tasty. Light tart taste, light to moderate sweet, very nice dryness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. A great “farmhouse” cider. Very much my style.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a pale clear gold with a small white head that settles into a rocky ring. Very clean - apple, pear, minerals, and hay without much depth at all. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, mineralic, dry mouthfeel. I don’t know why this didn’t do much for me. There’s just very little going on here.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear pale color with a minimal head that diminished slowly with fair legs. Medium floral tart apple aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft legs. Medium tart apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beverage.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear yellow color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet and tart green apples, dry, apple peel, light tart and funk, ok, but..... I do like this better than most ciders.

750 ml bottle. Pours deep golden with some bubbles. Aroma is of sweet and sour apples. Body is medium, crisp, biter-sharp. Taste fruity, acidic notes following with some bitterness. Finish is long, semidry. Great cider.

Yellow pour with no real head. Apple aroma. The flavor is dry, tart and earthy apples. Not overly sweet like some ciders.

750ml for $10 at 802bws, poured into tulip glass

A very clean, crystal clear cider. It’s a bit sweeter than I expected - I’ve only had their drier ciders. Very thin bodied and has a nice flavor, but mostly subtle. Not overly sweet, but definitely sweet. Very enjoyable.

75CL picked up @ Farnum Hill. 6.5% ABV on the label. No batch number. enjoyed @ 39F in a Teku. Honey like appearance, 7up carbonation fades quickly. Certain smells sweet, almost pear like. Taste is crisp, sweet, raw apple skin, very little dryness, not cloyingly sweet but is sweeter than their other offerings. would go nicely with seafood. it’s nice.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2013

Bottle from NBD. Lots of older Dooryards here if you look in the back of the shelves.

Fluted tulip. Classy clear, golden lager body. Not much fizz, but constant activity down below.
Cooked, steely apples. Something like oversteeped green tea. White table wine. Touch of oxidation. White pepper? Rice? Just an odd choice in words by me I guess. Just one of those days.
Wood is the first thing I taste. Touch of bitter rind. Has this rose water & ginger thing going. Iced down Schweppes sweetness. They say they use stainless, but this is quite leafy/woody.
Off-dry, with a slightly numbing quality. Barely carbonated. Thin & perhaps a bit starchy.

Probably the sweetest thing they’ve ever made, & barely at that. Not $13 easy, but easy. :)
