3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really fresh nose, inviting you to quickly dive in. Cloudy, great balance of sour and sweetness, a fizzy and zesty quencher that enlivens the palate.

345ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Hurstville. Hazy yellow colour, white foam head and aroma of fruity apple, hints of citrus. Taste is mellow apple, sweetish, sugary, fruity and abit sour with some light tannins. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry tangy slightly tannic finish. OK.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 27/04/16. Poured a clouded lemony-yellow colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of sweet fresh apples with a possible hint of yeast. Taste initially sweet followed by a green apple tartness. Light body. Crisp and refreshing with a slightly sweet finish but gets a bit sour as it warms. OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL bottle BB 06/11/14
Hazy pale straw looking thing. A white head flairs up, but doesn’t persist.
Not much on the nose; some fresh apple juice character, vinous yeasty sort of undertones.
Light bodied, moderate carbonation, a decent spike of acidity higher than most mainstream ciders to be sure.
Palate starts with a touch of sweetness, fleshy apple follows then it turns a bit sour (literally), and there’s a slightly vegetal celery/green herbal sort of note. Finish somewhat abrupt, not what I’d regard a "clean" finishing cider.
An attempt at making a mainstream farmhouse style cider, bit of an oxymoron. Not terrible, but seemingly geared towards the masses than serious cider aficionados & craft beer drinkers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours a very cloudy greenish yellow. Small white head that fades almost immediately. Sweet stewed apple aroma; almost identical to applesauce. Medium sweet-dry ratio. Dry enough to avoid the dreaded stickiness. Strong cooking apple flavour initially with a sweet finish of fresh apple. Decent

Poured from a bottle into a crystal clear tumbler. Cloudy. Very cloudy. I found it very tart which was a most refreshing change. I wasn’t sure about this at first. But i thinkit is growing on me...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - pour cloudy pale yellow, looks a bit like lime juice. Aroma is a bit like stewed cooking apples. Crisp up front which mellows down into a smooth dry appley finish.
