4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is absolutely one of the best ciders I’ve ever had.
It is unusually bweautiful for a cider, golden with a very large white head steadily dissipatin to a thin,. lasting head and elaving even a few hints of lace. Most ciders have only a thin, airy head and, regardless of the head size, no head retention whatsoever, much less lace.
The aroma is full, ripe green apples.
The taste is full and crisp. It has ripe green apples, slightly tart, along with ripe sweet red apples. It’s not too sweet and not too dry, with great balance and lasting flavur. A light yeatsy character builds to the finish, really adding to the apple in the lng aftertaste. It has unusually good complexity for a cider.

Clear, golden colored, small diminishing white head. Aroma is of apple juice, some tart apples, light+ horse blanket. Taste is moderate sweet apples, tart apples and peel, just the right amount of moderate tartness, some funky barnyard notes. Semi dry finish, crisp. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Really good cider.

It’s better than something like Strongbow or woodchuck or angry orchard, as much as that means. Straightforward apple, sweet.
