Tap at Taphouse Grille. Man, these guys can cider. Pale gold pour with a minimal head, some bubbles. Mild cinnamon, clove, apple pie - damn, this is yummy.

DrSilverworm (8150) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2015
5oz on tap at Cask Republic. Man, up front, big cinnamon and spice. Yellow apple. Kind of nice after I get accustomed to it. Mildly hazy orange color. Pretty much no head, very minimal white. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy bitterness. Solid. But spicy and sweet.

Spice over powers apple aroma and taste. On plus side, more cloudy and unfiltered than most ciders.

PorterPounder (6019) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with no real head. Aroma has hint of apple pie spice, some cinnamon. Nice solid flavor with an essence of apple pie spice, a touch of nutmeg, some of those apple desert things you find in TV dinners. Nice thick mouthfeel for a cider. Best cider I have had in a while.

2/28/15. On tap at World of Beer, Jax Beach. Golden pour. Nice aroma, light spice and cinnamon, apple juice - reminds of a nice apple cider. Nice flavor, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. all present but not overwhelming - really drinks like a nice Fall apple cider. We were pleasantly surprised with this one.

Simply outstanding. I am not a drinker by any means, so when my friend bought be a glass on tap I was a bit surprised. It was Apple Pie in a Glass! The only thing missing was a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream!!!!! This is my new favorite beverage!!!!!

Reminds me quite a bit of a delicious spiced apple cider. Lovely fall / winter drink that is crisp and warm at the same time.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5311) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2015
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this cider poured a slightly hazy yellow gold color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was cinnamon sugar and tart apples. The flavor was tangy and tart apple, strong cinnamon sugar and nutmeg. Long finish. Medium body. Well done.

On tap at Brunzies. Very nice sweet cinnamon apple pie aroma. Musky and rich. Hazy golden amber with no head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Sweet spicy cider, great apple flavor, lots of cinnamon and apple pie flavors. Sweet, carbonic finish with sweet musky after.
