2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a crystal clear light yellow with lots of carbonation. Aroma is cellared apples and a bit of sweetness, also there was some strange aroma I couldn’t place that bugged me throughout the first few whiffs of this cider. the flavor was actually ok, nice and tart, some good apple notes without being cloying, but that weird flavor note waas still there, but then it hit me. . . Garlic. this whole cider tasted and smelled like garlic olive oil I get at the local pizza joint. Had a rough time finishing it after that. Really strange flavor to find in a cider.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, Eli Cannon’s. Pours horribly pale gold-clear, reminding me of cheap printer paper. Aroma is of green apples, and fermenting alcohol. Flavor is decently fresh apple at first, with a light palate. Unfortunately the initial flavors dissipate quickly into slightly tart watery, alcohol flavors that just fail to appeal. I’ll pass in the future.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
First of all I bought this one for my wife and I admit I only had a few sips of it. That was enough though. This pours very pale in color in comparison to other ciders I’ve had/seen with a lot of carbonated bubbles surfacing. No head at all. Looks like someone mixed water and apple juice. Some tart apple flavor, slightly dry, but not nearly sharp enough flavors and this is quite watery and thin. Heck, my wife thought it was bland as well. She doesn’t want it again and I’m not a big Cider fan so no need for me to buy it again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at the brewery. Poured a clear golden color with a fizzy white head. Pretty standard apple aroma reminiscent of apple juice. There was also a light buttery note. Light to medium bodied and sweet. I tasted apple and a touch of vanilla. Pretty standard without any offensive characteristics. I’d say it is a bit underrated at the 11th percentile (at the time of my rating).

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a lighter yellow color with white head. Apples is really the only thing that comes out on the aroma, maybe a slight hint of alcohol. Flavor was just apples but it wasn’t really a pleasant flavor.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a very small white head. Aroma of apples, basically apple juice. Flavor of apples and bread. Not very good.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear yellow color with a soapy white head. Aroma is very sweet. Smells like apple juice. Not much else. Flavor is dry and medicinal with a middle of apple juice that takes over. Sweet and dry. Didn’t really care for it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I bought this thinking it would be good for the ladies. They didn’t even like it.
Low acl. content. Sweet apple flavor with no character at all. The was a poor example of a cider. I really like some of Harpoons brews...I hope they stick to beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a small white head that falls off remarkably fast, comprised of fat soda sized bubbles. Alcohol, decomposing apples, and a bit of champagne yeast on the nose. Medicinal and metallic, cloyingly sweet, and tasting like a baked rotten apple, and almost flat and syrupy. Finishes with a little more of that old apple flavor. Not very good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours the color of champagne and has a little, fizzy head. Aromas are straight apple juice. Flavor is over the top apple juice with a little bit of an alcohol presence. This is much better than feared.
