2012-08-17. Crisp very pale yellow is effervescent with small white ring of froth. 2+ fairly Sweet fruity apple character with just enough acidity to balance it, whispers of apple seeds. Lightly musty sweetish apple and apple juice in aroma. 6+ Average to thin palate is pleasantly effervescent. Not super complex but a tasty quaffable cider. Probably on the sweet side for some. On tap at Selins Grove, Pennsyklvania

Man rating cider is hard. It either tastes like Magner’s or it tastes like Strongbow. This tastes more like Magners. The nose smells like apples. It tastes like fresh frigging cider. The finish has a bit of tartness to it so it should session nicely. This is the drink that America was built on.

Bottle consumed at Otto’s Pub & Brewery. Pours a clear light yellow. Aroma of sweet, syrupy apple. Flavor of sweet, sugary apple with a tart dryness as well. Overall this reminded me more of an ice cider than a regular cider based on its sweetness. It was very enjoyable!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, at Otto’s. Sweet apple juice and cider aroma, very fruity and nice nose. Clear pale yellow - like white grape juice, no head. Medium body with high carbonation. Starts tart-sweet, tons of apple flavor with crisp notes, acidic bite and residual sugars. Finish is clean and refreshing with fruity sweet after.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear very pale gold with minimal head. Nose is tart apple, some earthy notes. Tastes sweeter than the semi-dry (DUH), with perhaos some more earthy notes and some honey flavors. Solid, and II agree that the semi-sweet/semi-dry dichotomy with this cider does directly translate somewhat to the same argument as applied to chardonnays, or any wien for that matter. Bottom line, good for your girlfriend, but you need to nut up and grab an Old Fugget.
