3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright, light yellow. Fresh, fruity and altogether clean aroma. Quite tart, with notes of apple skin and tannin. Bright on the palate with more apple complexity than the Semi-Dry. Very tart finish - fresh & fruity character is quenching indeed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home. Filtered, clear, golden orange appearance with no head. Slightly toasty, apple pulpy, mildly dry, vinous aroma. Lightly sour, sweet, toasty apple flavor with a mild to moderately finish. Slightly vinous. Kind of a weird toasty flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Pale straw colour, spritzy carbonation, quite clean and appley in the nose. Light malic acid, a touch of dustiness and some alcohol all make an appearance. Flavour is pretty well-balanced. Very dry on the finish with some light apple skin tannic character. Tart and slightly leathery, both of which intensify as the cider warms a bit. A bit less refined than the semi-dry cider, but it’s still quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a really light head that fades and a clear golden body. Some legs, surprisingly. Aroma of cork, apple and light horse. Taste is dry and delicate apples with light acidity. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Medium carb and dry finish (as it should). Very nice.

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a clear straw yellow with a medium sized white head that vanishes almost immediately. Dry apple, little bit of champagne yeast, somewhat sweet fruit. Thin, somewhat watery. Little bit of a dry hay note, rather empty overall. Dried out a bit too much.
