3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with low carbonation and no visible head. Nose is a deep, soft apple with some floral notes. On the tongue, it is a sweet, soft, low acid apple with more floral and honey notes. The finish is long, shifting into berries and cream; very gentle. Wears the ABV well. Decent, if not a bit understated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear apple-juice pour.
Modest apple nose, some alcohol. Somewhat sweet, good depth of flavor in the red apple vein. Quite clean, reasonably tasty, but a bit on the sticky-sweet side and not as interestingly complex as the better WA state ciders.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light golden color with a finger of white fizz. Nice balance of sweet tart apple fruit and dusty dry funk that is subtle but keeps the flavors interesting. Round ripe apple on the front end that gets a bit of earthy skin and tannic structure to keep the sweetness in check.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint bottle, served in a pint glass. Aroma is apple, with a mild astringent smell. Appearance is a light amber with a thin, lacy head that quickly dissipates to a light bubbling. Taste is tart apple, with maybe a hint of mild spice? Not sure, canít really tell. Fairly dry, somewhat astringent. It has a medium body with fairly lively carbonation. The finish is short and unmemorable, leaving you wanting more. Overall itís a good cider, sweet enough to drink easily yet not sickeningly sweet. Would recommend.
