3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at Sam’s Quik Shop. Was surprised to find this didn’t have that weird buttery thing that so many American ciders have. Nose was light apply, with some notes of Asti Spumante. Taste was drier, closer to champagne but still sweeter. Surprisingly not bad.

Thank you Shari for sending this to me.
She sent 2 bottles. One was poured into a pint glass and the other was poured into a wine glass.
The appearance was the same in both. A slight hazy amber color with a transparency about it to allow a bubbly carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell had a sweet to tart apple note and an added sugary note as well.
The taste was moderately sweet with a balancing tartness that was pretty good.
On the palate, there’s a certain sharpness but still a light sticky dry sweet apple rolling over my tongue. I would say that this one sat about a light on the body.
Overall, not a bad cider. I think I could return to this if I saw it again or if offered.

Draft and bottle. Poured a clear golden yellow color with no real head to speak of. Aroma is apple juice, sweet, some alcohol. Flavor is sweet, sugary, with some light dry notes. Better than most macro-style ciders.

Average cider at best. Nice n crisp and sharp, but with little else going on besides a bit of alcohol bite, not one I’d ever need to revisit."

Pours a pale clear yellow, not too impressive even for a cider. Crisp apple aroma is sweet and inviting. Apple flavor is sweet with a sour undertone. Firm texture has a lively and fairly persistent tingle, and finish has a little fruity sourness. Go ahead and sin!

355ml bottle. Expected this to be nothing but for a flagship style cidre it is dry and has a nice depth of apple flavor.

Just ok. More dry than I like. Really clear - it was so clear that my wife wondered if there was something wrong with it.
Had an ok taste, I won’t be picking up any more of this.

Poured from bottle in mix six pack, pours a pale yellow, and it’s pretty much see through, more like a dark tinted water look, aroma and flavor is extremely sweet and the flavor is more artificial than anything, ugh.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours about as see through and pale as you can get. Taste of apples and pears. Aroma of apples.

12 oz (350ml) bottle, 5.5%. Clear pale yellow colour, foam white head and aroma of sugary fruity apple. Taste is sweet, apple, fruity, melon, light wood and abit of tartness. Slightly foamy mouthfeel, light bodied, low to medium carbonation, dryish finish with some residual sweetness. Quite OK.

Smell is apple cranberry like. Cherry obviously but smells kind of cranberry like with a faint touch of alcohol. Taste is like apples and cherries with a tiny amount of alcohol showing up. Medium body and light to normal carbonation. Decent and not medicinal cherry tasting at least, but i’d prefer not noticing any alcohol at all. Not the most natural tasting either, but its ok.
