3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly effervescent light golden pour. The aroma has a rich apple core presence and mild residual sugars- quite clean. Effervescent feel with a dry flavor. Softly minerally with a bright apple presence. Soft sugars present themselves to the palate from the fore to mid with a very quick dry finish. Another bone dry, simple, and effervescent cider from Farnum Hill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle/750ml - Poured a very clear pale yellow in color with am almost non-existent head that faded quickly to nothing. The cider is adequately carbonated though. Aroma is of tart apples and white grapes with a "funky", barnyard like character that is really not that unpleasant and supports the idea that this is really a "farmhouse" cider. Flavor is decidedly tart, acidic and slightly astringent with the intense taste of apples. Reminds me of a mildly acidic apple vinegar, but with much more flavor and complexity. The "funky" flavor, while present, only adds to its complexity. This one of the best ciders that I have ever tasted... really good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a light gold with a thin, fizzy head. Mild aroma of apples. Flavor is crisp and tart, with a nicely balanced apple flavor that is sweet but not sugary. Light in body and well-carbonated, this beer is refreshing and sharp. Finish is dry with a lasting flavor of earth and apples. Overall a high-quality cider.

Draft. Pours a pale yellow body with a thin sparkling head. Tart appleish body with a light acidic tartness about it. Some hints of honey and dry apple skins akin to the subtle tart dry finish. A nice cider.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma quite acidic, maybe vaguely fruity, but mostly just acidic for me. Flavor has more apple, extremely tart, in addition to the expected acidity, and the apparently-expected astringency (was unaware this was an appropriate note in ciders.) Seemed more than semi-dry to me, but clearly I donít know my ciders. And I also clearly didnít much care for this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a very fizzy and carbonated head. Aroma of sweet fruits (apple and cherry), sweettart candies, and some slight barnyard funk actually. Flavor of tart apples, less sour than the aroma. The apple really comes out as the beer warms. Tart, acidic, and prickly mouthfeel. This is only my 2nd cider so Iím not sure where itís place is within the ciders, but I liked it!
