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.

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

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours smoothly and comes out a clear good with many bubbles. Smell is almost complete sweet apple, almost to a sugary state. Taste was good, but did not live up to the aroma. Wouldn’t turn this away, but I wouldn’t seek it out either.
