3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Riduculously pale, it looks like water. Not much aroma, a little bit of apple. Tart and refreshing and note a ton of character but it hits a pocket of dry and refreshing that works in warm weather.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with my lovely wife. Pours a clear light straw color with a small white head that ranges around the edges and sticks around for a while. Soft apples on the nose, a touch vinous. Medium bodied, sweet but empty. Not a lot going on here, a touch of apple and a lot of nothing else. A small bit of acid, a touch of sweetness and touch of yeast. Easy drinking but there’s not much else.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong apple aroma when opened. The cider is crystal clear, very light coloring. The flavor is a tart apple with a little bit of a lemon twang.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is watery and alcoholic with some apples. The appearance is clear and slightly carbonated. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall an average cider at best.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This cider poured a body that resembled soda water - and was also very carbonated. Aromas were light and bland, with some apple and a hint of sulfur. The forefront taste was just dry wheat among the high carbonation, but finished okay with a fresh apple taste. A very unbalanced cider, but fairly drinkable given a generous alcohol content.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Oblivion Taproom. Nose is tart granny smith apple with a hint of yeast(?). Body is almost clear with a light golden hue. No head of course. Taste is similar to nose with crisp, tart apple flavor and a dry finish. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Pours clear and nearly colorless with just the faintest hint of pale yellow. Almost looks like a clear soda. Aroma is somewhat sweet but not as sweet as some ciders. Flavor is nice and light, again not as sweet as some ciders. Overall not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. poured a clear ginger ale color, almost like water. Head is non existant, small amount of lacing. Aromas of apples, bannana runt candy, and other tart notes. Tast is a sour green apple, bannana candy, cinnamon, and other fruit. Basically motts with a little alcohol added. Alright. Not big on ciders.

OUTSTANDING! As a home cider-maker, this is exactly what I try to make every time. Clear with microscopic bubbles, this really is a true cider, not that sweet cloying stuff we generally think of (as Americans) as cider. Very champaigne-esque. Now if someone would make a session cider similar to this the cider community will be satisfied.
