3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 2008-07-21. Pale yellow body. (2-3) Modest apple aroma. Light flavour, tart apples, light acidity in the finish. Average to light bodied palate. Quaffable but fairly simple cider. 6+/2/6/3/12 - 3.0 Sampled at the winery.
April 2004. Clear yellow headless body per the style. Nice appley aroma and the finish is very much apple juice but there is a hint of something in the aroma and the initial swallow of this that defies my analysis. Can’t tell if it’s something I like or something unnatural. A decent cider but nothing so special. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0 Draft at the Bow and Arrow.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Merchant Ale House. Pours a clear straw yellow, closer to water with a hint of yellow than to yellow. No head. Big sweet apple aromas a touch of champagne yeast. On the thin side of medium, but with loads of very fine carbonation. Ascetic acid, little bit of apple, lots of tartness. Finishes with more tangy acid. Not bad, just rather empty and one dimensional.

Pours a pale yellow-straw colour with prickly light carbonation. A little bit of apple flavour but there is also a touch of tartness. Firm palate and a little bit lingering apple flavour. It’s okay, but it’s pretty typical.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [341ml] courtesy of GregClow. Pours a clear, bubbly, incredibly pale gold with no head -- looks almost like carbonated water. Mild aroma of sweet apples, wood, sugar and white wine. Tart apple flavour with some sugary sweetness, some acidity, white wine and a long dry finish. A touch too carbonated for my liking. Light bodied. Just O.K.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle - 6.0% ABV. Very pale gold - fizzy diminishing white head (3-). Mild but solid aroma - ripe apple, a bit tart, not all that sweet.
Taste follows - simple acidic apple, not sweetened, just sweet from the apple - a little warming. Light body, slightly acidic, decent carbonation with a quick crisp finish - quite good!

(Draught) Sampled at the Woolwich Arms & Arrow in Guelph, ON. Came headless with a clear, lightly carbonated, golden body. Nose of apple juice with slight nail polish. The flavour was crisp and balanced - fairly sweet. I would love to have this on tap in Ottawa as well...
