BMan1113VR (7868) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a clear golden body with some fizz. Aroma of alcohol, dryness, and decently fruit forward. Taste is dry, sparkling and nice. Slightly acidic. Quite drinkable, but lacks a bit in complexity.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 18, 2008
Light golden with no head. Aroma is of lightly sour apples, and slightly sweet. The tartness picks up a bit in the flavor along with a sweet middle and a dry, mild sour finish. Low carbonation throughout this cider. Solid cider.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Guest tap at Southern Appalachian Brewing. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Tart grainy apples with earthy notes. The taste is sweet apples, some graininess and pear. Medium bodied. Decent.

This cider is really dry and drinks quite easily. I think they put a little too much sulphur in it, it has a sulphur bite and is lacking in carbonation. It drinks more like a Sauvignon Blanc.

radagast83 (5038) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Brought this cider back from NC. Split with girlfriend. Poured a clear yellow color with a fizzy, disipating head. Aroma is apples. White wine dominates this cider, very much like a white. Okay, perhaps lacking a bit compexity, but perfect as a regular very dry cider.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle from weaver street market. Took a chance on a local product.Pours light like white wine with no head. Havent found too many ciders with a lasting head so I cant take points off for that. Nose is dry with fresh apples and oak. Flavor and mouthfeel are also very dry with notes of sweetness. Alcohol noted, but not a disturbance. Kinda bland and watery at times. Pretty good, but I guess I was hoping for a little more.

Golden color. No head. Nose is apple and yeast. Flavor is dry at the start but finishes sweet with a bit of yeast and a touch of booze. It is what it is I guess.
