tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours nice golden color with plenty of carbonation and a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet and full of apples with a faint spicy yeast hint that suggests cinnamon and raisin. The flavor is mild apple, with some dry cellar and wood notes. Sparkly finish that leads to a very interesting aftertaste, very earthy although quite faint. I kinda like it.

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2009
22 oz draft split with the girlfriend purchased from binnys (orland park, Il). Pours a transparent vibrant straw yellow. Aromas are light apple must, some dryness, and a touch of apple juice sweetness and light alcohol. Initial is a little bland, but fills in nicely with subtle apple flavor, dryness, and no cloying sugary mess. A touch calm, but appreciated. No real booze in the actual taste. Pretty good for what it is.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle pours gold and crystal clear with a short lasting head and no lace. The aroma is apple and some funk. The flavor is sweet, apple, tart, and pretty delicious. The palate is cleansing and refreshing. Overall, not bad.

This clear golden cider poured with a bubbly white head and a vinegar aroma. The apple flavor is quite sour and dry but somewhat tasty.

Pours bright yellow gold into an english pint. Bright white head quickly recedes to actively hug rim. Crisp, dry sour apple from front to back and back again.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 Bottle. 12/25/08.

A lovely straightforward cider, musty apple-cellar aroma,, plenty of apple skins and just a bit of funk in the flavor. Right on target in terms of sweetness -- not sugar at all -- basically a dry finish but with enough sweet in there to make it apple-y rather than champagne dry. I actually really like this one and could easily drink a lot more than the 6 ounces that I got to taste along with Christmas dinner. 7/3/8/4/15

Revisit 10/22/14. Not knowing anything about cider when I rated this originally (it had to be one of my very first cider ratings) I fear I afforded this more respect than it deserved. Quite a light pour, quickly disappearing white head. Apple and cheap white wine aroma, mild sweetness, apple of course but not intensely so. I don’t really get the must or funk. Effervescent. Just OK.
