3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Thank you, Irene Daanen from Daanen’s Deli! Aroma consists of basic cider with an undercurrent of citrus powder drink. Pours clear gold with a medium white head that collapses into a long-sustaining ring of foam after a minute. Taste is a little light on the apples; starts out sweet before turning tart and dry. Watery texture, highly carbonated. Not bad, but pretty dull.

I drink it to get drunk. I couldn’t detect any rotten meat. Some chemical flavor. I had it at my parents house.

I need to work out a proper system. I tend to start the night with a serious cocktail or imperial brew, have a few high octane IPAs & then wish I had something tasty & sessionable. Next thing I know I’m drink the wife’s ciders. And this one’s ok. You get the fruit (is it real?), you get the carbonation, you’re okay. Again, as I always say with cider: if you can, go local, go real fruit, go hard (my local is spirit tree & they Kick this drinks ass).

10oz glass on tap at Great Scott. Clear golden color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. No head or lace, just a couple tiny white bubbles. Medium body. Light carbonation. Very mild dryness in the finish. More sweet, sort of baked apple flavor, light spice. Moderate to stronger sweet taste, not much else. OK cider, for me. Reasonably agreeable, but nothing about it makes it stand out for me.

Straight from the can, aroma is just straight apples so straight forward o.n that. Taste is nice and crisp with sweet and dry cider notes. Its a simple beverage but its great on a hot summer day for some awesome refreshment.

Bottle, thanks avrashi. Pours clear and fizzy golden. Smells acidic and a little manure-like. Wine-like taste, a little sweet with apple sourness. Medium-bodied, warm, apple finish.
