12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with no head. Pleasant aroma of apples with a bit of fruit sweetness along with cinnamon and ginger. The flavor is apples, on the sweeter side, with cinnamon and ginger. There is some mild heat from the ginger at the finish, which I liked. Very easy to drink.

Bottle courtesy of weihenweizen. Musty ripe sweet tart apple and mulling spices (cinnamon-allspice-clove-orange peel-ginger). Hazy straw gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet-tart ripe apple and mulling spices, maybe a little clove heavy. Medium body, lively carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Growler from the Brookhaven Beer Growler. Pours gold, with some fleeting bubbles. Aroma is red delicious, caramel, cloves, and cinnamon. Smooth, sweet flavor, with some warm spice. Crisp and acidic body, and rather heavier than most ciders - almost pulpy. This is a delicious mulled cider. The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the initial smell, which is unfortunate. Still, a nice cider.

Tastes like fall... Mulled cider, as the description suggests... Typical cider pour, loads of apple aroma with loads of potpourri an fall seasonal spices. Flavor is plenty more spices as potpourri. Not bad but I don’t love it.

sample. the spicies in this one works. Tastes like hot apple cider. Just needs the rum! Dark color and moderate sweetness.

12 oz bottle. Misty yellow brown with a few big bubbles. Nose is bubblegum, apple and cinnamon stick. Juicy medium body with a slight tingle. Taste is baked apple, toffee, cinnamon and ginger. Finishes a bit tart with some lemon pith. Too sweet but i like the spicing.
