A very dry cider that starts crisp and with a bit of flavor, but the finish is flat and lacking.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear golden with white splotchy head and a lot of carbonation. Notes of apple and tart acidic yeastiness in the nose. Tastes dry, with notes of apple, champagney yeast and palate profile, and some woody flavor. Meh.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Got red apples coming through. Not too sweet or clawing. Nice one and would recommend. Balanced flavours, but fresh apples to the fore. Seems obvious thing to say , but many ciders are metallic and taste/smell artificial.Slightly different to other ciders in that respect.

Pours darker honey in color with a nice white foam that settles into a lasting ring. Crisp dry apple and honey taste that lingers nicely. Props for this not opting to be sweet and surgery like so many US ciders and the newly formulated Strongbows are.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Horse blanket, apple aroma, quite strong. Clear amber. Oak, apple, farmhouse. Good balance, semi-dry. A little fizzy, which magnifies the dryness on the back of the palate. Good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden pour with a 2 finger, soapy white head that fades quickly to a thick ring, sustained by a fairly high effervescence. Aroma is sweet apple, earthy leafiness, and a little deep berry fruit. Flavor is sweet, musty apples, a hint of vanilla, alcohol, some fusel notes and musty leaves. Light to medium body with an oily feel throughout, medium to heavy, but somewhat soft carbonation and slightly chalky, but still oily finish. Not bad overall, but somewhat watered down tasting and a little heavy on the booziness and fusel notes.
