2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale straw into the glass, with a fizzed out cola head. The nose is of pears. The sour flavors contain some processed version of Granny Smith apples, unripened pears, and maybe just a hint of sour lemon at the finish. As sours go, itís not acidic... the body is thin, the mouthfeel is watery, and the texture... well, there really isnít any complexity here. A good "starter" cider, I guess, but nothing to write home about or have again. Unimpressive.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light yellowish green color with a fizzy head that soon becomes nothing. Light hints of apple and biscuits in teh nose. Palate is thin and fizzy. Flavor of apples and biscuits with a light sweetness. Refreshing and light, not bad.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
( 12oz bottle ... courtesy of cavie) Pours clear as water with some carbonation but no head. Nose of apple, funk. Taste of lake, watered down apple concentrate. Lingers with rotten apples. This is nasty.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft: Apple aroma with buttery rubbery tinges. Clear yellow, little carbonation. Watery with weak apple flavor, dry rubbery finish. Good apple variety choice, awful execution. Weak AND flawed. Immediately re-rated because I was a bit harsh. I guess my disappointment was magnified by the rating. It isnít a drainpour (0.8), but it isnít very good either. Compassionately uprated.

Youíre a ruthless little cunt, Liam, Iíll give you that. But Iíve got no time for grassers. Feed íem to the pigs, Errol. SHit cider, gold, made from old apples. had at the Houston Flying Saucer, but why?

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I find the ratings of this cider curious -as a long long time cider drinker (didnít even used to drink beer until I moved from the UK to the USA) I find this cider to be by far and away the best American dry cider Iíve tasted. No fizzy sickly sweet stuff but a true dry taste of apples. On a hot day, this one hits the spot.
Is it because the other reviewers arenít regular cider drinkers?

I recently started drinking ciders. As far as ciders go this is one of the best I have had. Very crisp and clean as well as refreshing!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Flat, no head. Nose is light with apple but more on the sulpher and burnt wood side. The flavor is sweet and tepid with a cloying aftertaste and a dull thin body. Not very up front with the fresh apples or showing off a more dry yeasty musky side either. Kinda boring.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle thanks to Cavie. The look is clear, very light yellow color, and not too much head. The smell is apples, fruits, slight butter. The taste is sweet, apples, and fruits.
