2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a clear champagne color with no head. aroma is light sour and sweet apples. has a light body with no lacing but good carbonation. flavor is a balance between sweet and sour apples. a little thin but the apples stay with you in the aftertaste and there was no alcohol detected. not to bad of a cider. could use at least some kind of head and lacing and a little more apples thrown in to make the aroma and flavor a little more powerfull. but i am no expert in hard ciders this being my third in my lifetime. kind of has the taste and mouthfeel of a middle of the road champagne made with apples instead of grapes.

Light straw with minimal white head / Sweet, candied fruit nose / Light body, effervescent, with decent finish / Moderately sweet, fresh and slightly candied flavors of banana (circus peanuts), pear, and green apples / A very pleasant, simple, and fresh cider.

Extremely baby foodish aroma of pears and apples. Color is almost as clear and colorless as water, with a slight lime green tint. Clean cider taste, good alcohol masking.

A nice cider than pours ligh straw with heavy notes of sweet apple. The palate s more sweet than tart but you do get a hint of tartness on the finish.

Recently, at a particularly poor beer tasting offered by a local store, I scanned their cooler for some awful beer that they had on hand, just to up the ante. This was one of them. Clear with just the palest hint of yellow. A few air bubbles for a head. A very faint nose of apple. Very faint. Watery in the mouth. Astringent flavor of nothing particular. Not worth getting kicked out of Eden for.

Pale Floral Yellow Color. Granny Smith Apple Aroma Balanced Apple Sweetness on the Tongue...Nice Smooth Cider. Not Nearly as Sickly Sweet as Some Hard Ciders Often Are.

12oz bottle. This is sweet apple cider with a dry finish. It is refreshing, light, and simple. It went perfectly with some bbq and a hot summer night.

There’s hardly any color to the highly carbonated body, just a drop or two of yellow dye. The aroma is faint, some mildly tart apples along with their skins. The flavor perks up a bit, more tart and stronger than the aroma. The finish is dry and lightly sour. Okay for warmer weather.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost like water with a small white head. The aroma is faint but has some green apple ~ that’s it. Medium / thin body with a nice slick feel and semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with semi-sweet green and red apples with some sourness. The finish is pretty much the same. This is a decent cider, but not really any complexity & the ingredient of champagne yeast is completely hidden to me.
