Golden colour, very clear. Quite tart aromas - russetty and slightly spicy. Sour on the tongue at first becoming slightly more mellow in the aftertaste. This seemed heavy in the mouth and left my teeth quite sticky. I’ve always been a beer rather than cider drinker but would buy this again though one pint is plenty.

maneliquor (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Nose is apple skin and tart. Sweet apple, apple skin and a touch of tart in the taste. Slightly dry. Almost no carbonation. Not sure about this one

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle from bruisin ales - Pours a clear golden orange with tiny bubbles. Aroma is bright and slightly tart, like green apples. Taste is mineral water with a mildly tart & sour aftertaste. Palate is dry and very watery. I had to drink half a pint to identify the taste. Very disappointing.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours orange tinged gold with a fizzy, transient white head. Nice apple skin aroma - no trace of cooked apple. Near med body. It’s very much skin astringency. Slightly acidic apple flavor - again none of the cooked apple flavor. Not a lot of sugar. So dry it finishes.

500ml Bottle at Home 09/05/2011 Fruity aroma. Slight carbonation. Golden coloured fruity apple flavour with a hint of dryness and bitterness in a tannin finish.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2011
500ml bottle. Clear, fizzy orange with no head. OK funky apple tang and balancing sweetness on the aroma. A bit empty on the palate after the initial mild tang. Some red apple sweetness. An odd bit of damp funky yeastiness towards the finish. Not overly dry but quite refreshing. Fully carbonated on the palate. Lingering watery apple aftertaste. Opened gradually as it warmed but always seemed a bit muted.

Golden pour with aromas and tastes of apples. A little tart finish. It was ok.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Had to pick this bottle up out of town, as all my go to shops sold out rather quickly. Cost was about $7. BB: AUG11 Sam Adams imperfect pint glass. Bright golden lacquer color. Mostly still pour. Smell is uninspiring, but thankfully subtle. Warm plastic, boiled apples & table sugar. Taste is better though. Honey, wood, chardonnay-like butteriness. Lip balm. Bitter apple cores & a minor influence from sulfites & bland yeast. Can’t shake some of that plastic. A light tang that doesn’t quite get tart in my opinion. Decent acidity. A bit sweet for a "dry" cider as well. Initial slick mouthfeel turns dry on the finish. Carbonation provides some necessary crispness. Very decent. :)

tommann (2702) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a light golden with little carbonation. Aroma is sweet apples. Sweet apple start, some tartness in the finish, which is dryer, but I was expecting a bit more.
