This is a nice summertime cider. It does seem like it was over filtered. Enjoyed by 6 of us.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Fred Meyer. Light golden in color. Looks to have very low carbonation. Nose is very light, but seems to have a hint of apple. Sweet, light apple flavor up front. Not a whole lot going on. Pretty average cider.

Bottle from BevMo in Escondido. Aroma of tart apples, nice deep gold pour. I found this to be very clean, refreshing and well balanced, one of the better ciders that I have had. Has a crisp, slightly carbonated, dry mouthfeel. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bottlle purchased from Roths Vista Market in Salem
Very pale yellow colour with no head and no lace.
Aromas of semi-sweet apples and maybe a little leaf/earth.
Simple semi-sweet ..maybe Fuli or Pink lady apples..thats about it.
Palate is fine for style sweet ending.
Another clean boring US cider.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Hangar on the wharf.
I had a little water to clean my palate of the previous beers.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a pure clear yellow color with a big transparency to it. Light streams of bubbles arise. There was barely any head (but it’s a cider, no worries).
The smell was a slight tart to sweet Granny Smith apple with a slight nice grassy bitter lemon coming through as it warmed.
The taste was mainly sweet with a nice thorough tart and yet mildly acceptable sour lemon to balance the apple. There’s a slight vinous aftertaste with a mild dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a proper carbonation for a cider = harsh but not overbearing.
Overall, a cider I could do again...hmm, maybe.

a good cider, on all points .. . deep yellow .. mild spots of foam .. . apple juice, light red skin, and braisins .. . medium feel and a touch sweet on the end .. . solid cider son .. . . everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Crisp and sweet. The alcohol content of 6.7 presents itself nicely and blends with the apple. Not too sweet... reading the ingredients theres no corn syrup (phew, thats a relief).
I really like this cider and for the price you cannot beat it. Great cider from a great apple growing region...makes sense.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a effervescent bubbly body. A big sweet apple nose. The flavor is sweet apples, peel, vanilla, a bit of sugary notes. The flavor is almost a clear apple with very few major problems, maybe a bit bland. Good cider.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light greenish gold, fresh apple nose, a little appley, touch thin but also effervescent, good flavour, mainstrean in style but well-executed.
