The last in the cider line that this little town has to offer.Nice color,strong apple aroma,no head and what was there faded pretty damn fast.The flavor was a little softer then the other ciders i've had,not nearly as hard a bite as before yet the flavor is still some what the same apple with a muffin like taste some what over ripe apple,that gives a sweet/sour feel to it with the sour coming in at the tail end of the finish.still a fine brew and on a hot day might take the place of some of the hot day brews i have on my mind.

At SMÖF 2011. Pale golden clear cider with ni head. Fruity with a nice sweetness. Lovley appleflavour. Really refreshing cider.

Pours a light golden color, typical cider. Aroma is sweet and tart, with a muskiness I have attributed to golden apples. Sort of a mild apple smell rather than the crisp of the green or red apples. Taste is very similar to the aroma, with the sweet, slightly cloying flavor of American ciders. Overall, a very nice session cider. I had all six in one sitting!

Strong sour apple aroma leads to a matching taste. More enjoyable than other ciders IMHO.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 21, 2007
On tap at the monthly Dec. Boston Brewery tasting. This was my first ever alcoholic cider and i really like it. Very smooth on the palate and gong down. Nice faint apple aroma, flavor was sweet and something else accenting the taste, maybe oak? Very nice, i would definitely like to try this again, but they do not sell it in my area (MA/RI).

This bottled brew poured a fully diminished head of small to large sized white almost transparent bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow almost uncarbonated body and a small lace. The aroma is a very nice apple and the mouthfeel is tingly thick smooth with a mild apple cider bite in the finish. The flavor is sweet with apple with a slight acidity.

A really good cider, better than its over-produced and excessively tarty competitors. This one maintains a level of sweetness without becoming smirnoff ice hard cider. A nice refreshing drink for any cider fan.

As far ciders made from golden delicious apples, I think this is the best. There is a distinct differnece in taste between ciders made from golden delicious and traditional macintosh apples. This is a good one worth trying. Slight aftertaste that briefly follows you around.

What a pleasant surprise. Poured a little boring, like an American lager. Aroma was refreshing, apple beer. Initial taste impression was "hmm, wine cooler." It got better and better though and by the end I was ready for another. Nice apple flavor with a slightly bitter finish and a pleasant palate. Very refreshing. These are coming to the lake this summer.
