The Standard is the cider that Noble is known for. We use fresh-pressed apple juice from six different varieties of apples local to WNC. We ferment the juice to dry and add a touch of sweetness back in. The result is a 7.5% ABV cider thatís crisp, tart, lightly effervescent, and just sweet enough for a balanced, long finish. Noble Ciderís Standard Bearer is easy-drinking by itself or with a good meal. Itís the perfect cider for just about anything! Naturally gluten-free. Noble Cider is a great alternative to beer when you want to throw one back with your buds. Itís perfect for anyone with gluten sensitivities.

Draft sample at Cedricís Tavern at the Biltmore near Asheville, NC; bubbly clear pale color with minimal white head. Aroma notes of apples, not too sweet or sour really. Taste adds semi-sweet dryness really.. Light-medium body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with quick finish. Not much to it, alright.

Draft at Wedge during RBWG. Pours a clear amber color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet golden apples, some tart green apples, hints of skins and wood, some additional honey like sweetness.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; very light though. A completely transparent very light gold with thin white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes mildly tart and appley with a light, dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but could have a stronger apple presence.

Draft at Wedge. Pours a pale, clear gold with some bubbles around half of the edge. Very clean, with fresh, crisp apples. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sharp, crisp, tart mouthfeel. Very nice, satisfying cider.
