22 oz. bomber courtesy of Nate. Pours a very clear pale golden color with a very thin fizzy head that is gone in a couple of seconds. It looks more like pale sparkling wine than a cider. Aroma is very, surprise, apply with just a hint of spice. Some notes of the skins in there as well. Body is very nice and light. Completely refreshing with a lot of spritz. The flavor is relatively subtle. Chardonnay and apple juice with a very dry finish. Not much sweetness at all here, making it very drinkable.

From a 22oz bottle at Otto’s. Poured a very pale clear gold with a thin crackling head that disappeared in an instant. Smells of fresh apple juice, slightly tart. The flavor was crisp and dry, lots of fresh apple flavor, slight band-aid characteristic. I’ve only had a couple ciders so I’m no expert but this was half decent.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Sampled from a 750ml brown bottle this cider poured a very pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head. The aroma was sharp and crisp apple. The flavor was dry, faintly nutty and had a light tart apple presence with a touch of vinegar in the finish. More dry than I am used to but enjoyable.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Sample from Otto’s. Pours pale gold with maragarita tinge and minimal head. Nose and flavor and tart green apple, with a tart flavor and a smooth finish. A solid cider, similar to the mass brands.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2010 22oz Bottle at the brewpub. Aroma casts a slightly almost vinegar-like snap of clear, filtered apple cider. Plain apples. Pours an amazingly clear and pale peachy gold, with a faint wisp of perfectly white head. Flavor varies. First, some generic fermented cider and sulfites. Then a peculiar kind of aged apple skin, almost rotty and rubbery sensation that’s not entirely pleasing. Then a fade into a bit of biting metallic sensation. I’m not particularly enjoying this, but then I don’t drink many ciders or fermented beverages with sulfites. I did appreciate the sweetness level. It seemed rather dry, although my champagne-fancying thought it ebbed sweet but was just a touch away from being a perfect, apple version of champagne. She did happily quaff the entire bottle. I’m excited they’ve turned a local apple orchard into a cider element at Otto’s. So, keep up the work!

12oz Bottle - Semi-dry. Light and tart apple skin aroma. Pours crystal clear golden with a very slight peach hue. Flavor is crisp and alive. Bright fresh juice, greenish skin, vague tart acidity and some musky pith. Not particularly complex, but clean, dry and fresh with fantastic drinkability. A big improvement over the first bottles I tried.
