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.

Clear with a hinto yellow no head or lace. Light apple with a hinto sour. Light sour apple with pretty nice carbonation. Thin and watery

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.

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.

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.

Just a touch darker than clean water with barely a hint of head around the rim of the glass. Sugary, light apple, light tart aroma. Medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is much more tart than the aroma suggests. Light apple, too. Finish is quite tart and dry. Was hoping for more from this one.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22oz Bottle, purchased at Capital Liquors - Cranston, RI. Aroma is a thin, seltzery apple soda. Pours pretty much clear and white. This is sugary and bland. Itís like an apple alco-pop, hardly cider at all. Thereís little to know apple flavor, lots of white sugar flavor, and some off-fermentation characters. Ugh.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a pale white color with no head. The nose is pretty clean with light apple notes. The flavor is crisp, tart, and dry with a clean finish. Pretty tasty. I like the dryness of it.
