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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours perri color with a few bubbles. Nice, crisp apple skin aroma. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is greenish apple with yellow apple skin. Something of a light weight, but clean and refreshing.

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 isn’t a drainpour (0.8), but it isn’t very good either. Compassionately uprated.

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 (didn’t 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 I’ve 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 aren’t regular cider drinkers?

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.

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.

You’re a ruthless little cunt, Liam, I’ll give you that. But I’ve got no time for grassers. Feed ’em to the pigs, Errol. SHit cider, gold, made from old apples. had at the Houston Flying Saucer, but why?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… Clear, light straw-colored cider with no head. The aroma is of oven-baked, spiced apples. Light-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and a rumor of carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Tart, dry finish

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!
