Draft: Mildly funky apple nose. Crystal clear very pale yello, bubbly. Semi-sweet apple, mild floral note. Tart and tangy. Looks cheap and weak, but it’s quite elegant. Maybe better bottled.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very clear cider, very pale. Wine-type bottle, good label. Effervescent, no head. Very nice, light aroma with ever-so-slight vinegar, lightly floral. Tart and lightly sweet. Light body, tangy finish. A crowd pleaser, clean drinking, nicely done. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from his Atlantic coast trip.
