3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
350ml bottle from Hand Drawn Monkey, Huddersfield but first tasted in the Big Apple, so to speak. Seem to remember it tasting better over there. Pours clear to light yellow, taste is light with green apples, desert apples and a syrupy sweetness although not as full on as the likes of Bulmers. Itís an accessible, sweet blend but my tastebuds want something a bit rougher than this.

Bottle (12 oz). Shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Clear pale yellow/almost translucent with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of apples, light pear, light sweetness and hints of tartness. Taste is of apples with just a nice touch of sweetness, light pear and light acidic notes. Alcohol is completely hidden. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Extremely drinkable and refreshing/quenching and nicely dry. Incredibly underrated. I would take it as an everyday cider anytime. Nice surprise!

One of my favorite hard ciders. Dry, not too sweet, just strong enough to enjoy.

Crystal clear with a light lemony hue, almost colorless. Aroma is light and apple-y, with a touch of champagne yeast and apple skin. Flavor is crisp and cidery, with some sweet apple flavors and light tartness, with a bubbly dry finish. Itís fine. Colors within the lines and all. Not bad, just "another cider"

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:
Tiny fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral with hints of apples, hay and yeast. Taste is slightly fruity, fresh green apples, yeast, hay. Fair enough.

translucent straw color with white bubbles around the edge. very effervescent.
aroma: raw tart apple, champagne, and pizza dough. medium-light body with high carbonation.
taste: fresh apple, champagne. nice balance of sweetness, tartness, tannins, and musty champagne depth.
i would like a bit more whole apple character.
