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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pours a pale yellow. Lots of apples on the nose. No head to speak of. Starts out sweet and ends dry. Not bad.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Poof. Looks like water although jbruner said there was bubbles to it. Faint apple smell as well as the flavor. Crisp not too sweet. Ohhhh another crappy cider.

Pours a bubbly clear yellow on tap, no real head or lacing. Aroma is booze and apples, taste follows, not crazy sweet. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pint. Looks solid; a transparent apple juice gold with good carbonation and razor-thin lacing that dissipates entirely fairly quickly. Smells and tastes of fermented apple juice with a nice, tart mouthfeel. A decent cider.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a straw yellow color with a thin and short lived, white head. The nose has a little apple sweetness, but not much else. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a little granny smith flavor. Light in body with high carbonation and a clean finish. Pretty mellow in the world of cider, especially with the stuff coming out now.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours an extremely light color with a fizzy, half finger head that dissipates to nothing in moments. Had a slightly tart aroma, and that’s it. Was slightly sweet, and a bit tart. A really bland cider.
