12 ounce can from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville, opened 5/30/14. Pours a hazy yellow color with no head. Aroma of strong, spicy ginger followed by tart apples. The taste is strong ginger, a little breadiness, sweet apples, mildly tart finish. Medium bodied, decent balance. Solid.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy gold with no head. Aroma is firmly ginger. Med body! Flavor is ginger iwth a hint of cider. With time the cider makes a mild come back - and it becomes less than dry, but the ginger never stops. Mildly sweet, but with ginger, finish.

12oz can picked up at Brewforia Friday night... Pours a fairly hazed light straw golden. Nose is ginger tea with background apple... Flavor has more apple presence but the ginger is big mid-palate without ever becoming "hot".. tasty, not spicy.. The spiciness mixes well with the cider notes. Very drinkable... I love this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Strongly spicy and herbal ginger root aroma with little to no apple character. Spicy, peppery, rooty ginger flavor with NO cider character. Really. Nothing else. It’s not bad, it’s actually pretty nice if you like ginger, ginger beer and ginger soda. Sweet, medium body, moderate bitterness, lively ginger zest flavor. Not cider-like at all, but tasty enough and better than the oak-aged cider for sure.

On tap at Collin’s Pub, and from memory. Pours a cloudy, pale gold color, with a light aroma of apple and ginger. No head, soft carbonation. Somewhat on the sweet side, but there is a moderate ginger presence that balances this out nicely. Very enjoyable, easy to drink, and liked by other at the table.
