2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the Indian River Brewing Company in Melbourne, FL. It had a small sized white head with fine-large sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent. The nose reminded me of wine and the flavor was sweet, sour and wine tasting. The mouthfeel was bubbly and tingly and this was a light bodied beer with no lacing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 63. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Melbourne Florida and served by Jack Owen the brewmaster. This brew poured a large head of mostly diminishing fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated very weak uring yellow colored bidy and no lace. The aroma was of apple cider and the mouthfeel was tingly and bitter. It had a weak thin cider flavor.

I think only the second Irish cider I’ve had. This is substantially more sweet than Magners/Bulmers Original, but still leaves a bit to be desired.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, yet not carbonated quite enough for my taste. As far as sweetness goes, sweeter than Woodpecker/Magner’s, but not as sweet as Woodchuck Amber (but nothing is). Middle-of-the-pack and could be considered a bit watery and thin.
