1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at Vine st. Pours curiously clear, like crystal water and no head. Smell is typical boozy apple with just a hint of cardboard. Taste was kinda the same; red delicious mixed with sour green apple, really dry, crisp, sour, boozy. Not a huge fan.

2/27/12. 22oz bottle. Clear pour, barely tinted yellow, close to water, with a fizzy head thatís gone instantly. Tart apple aroma with a touch of yeastiness. Tart apple flavor, sweeter than the aroma suggests, with more yeast presence as well. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Almost crystal clear pour, slight tonic water darkness to it - nice bubble action; no head. Barely discernible aroma, just a hint of artificial apple. Flavor is pleasantly sour with some nice Granny Smith notes. Bit of a funky aftertaste dampens my enthusiasm. Mouthfeel has kind of a tonic water-like bubbly spritz to it. Expected a bit more.

22oz bottle, shared with Taylor. Interesting, nearly colorless appearance, just a champagne-like slight yellow tint. She thought it smelled like red wine. The texture of this is a lot like champagne, too... No wonder the ladies at the wine store were such fans of this. Lighter carbonation, with a tart sweet taste. Iím still not a cider-fan, but this is refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - app. Vintner - I got this in August, but am just now tasting it. Pours a very clear pale gold with no head and few tiny bubbles. Aroma is faintly acidic apples. Taste is tart. Palate this thin, finishes dry. Iím not getting a lot of alcohol. This is not a complex cider, but itís OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from D&Q, part of my Xmas haul .. . pours a pale white grape juice .. no foam .. . I canít stop my arms moving! - Look how random my arms are! .. . light apple, light tartness .. . easily the most simplistic cider iíve ever had but the abv is masked very well and its easy to drink, just lacks character .. . .
Last time I went to the countryside I had a bit of bother.
What, with the locals?
Nah, a cow. It charged at me so I had to knock it out. One punch.
I had to leg it though cos itís mate saw what was going on, and, no word of a lie, they stood up on their hind legs and started firing milk at me from their tits.
Yeah, there were loads of íem.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle for $1.49...my arm was twisted. Hyper pale, like you poured out some soda essentially. Cleanish standard cider aroma. Inoffensive and ridiculously drinkable, I could drink liters of this stuff...but Iím rather inexperienced in the cider realm. I pounded the hell out of this one, because it didnít seem like a subtle, slow sipper to me. A little thin in flavor, not much going on besides a steady sour green apple thing..which I can dig. In no way pysched up about it, but an enjoyable beverage.
