muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 19, 2008
550 ml bottle from the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served a bit above fridge temperature from a 550 ml Sam Smith’s glass. Bubbly, huge white head fizzes away quickly above the roiling, fizzy pale gold and very clear body....dusty, dry, rather tart and somewhat musty/rotten apple aroma, not terribly pleasant, somewhat weak, though real enough I suppose.....definitely more pleasant on the tongue than in the nose, moderately sweet but full of apple rather than sucrose flavor, juicy and pretty full-bodied, with carbonation a little softer and less forced-feeling than the appearance suggests....nothing amazing in the character here, but perfectly drinkable, reasonably balanced in the dry/sweet axis....that’s about it.

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

550ml bottle from Beers of Europe, with Stuu666. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aromas of oak, apple, custard. Taste brings a rhubarb note to the custard, more apples. Light tart finish. Odd.

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.

Canmoore (330) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours a nice gold colour with lots of bubbles. Aroma includes notes of tart apples, pears, apricots, and sharp esters. Tasting notes include a well rounded apple palate, and pears, apricots, and floral notes. The finish is a tad boozy, but all in all a pretty good English Cider!
