3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, light amber pour, cider aroma with a distinct hop presence. Flavor leans dry, slightly tart, with a background of light hop bitterness. It works pretty well, but I’d opt for a couple other hopped ciders over this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 500 ml bottle from Central Market, 1/29/14
Aroma: The nose is light with a little apple juice and some soft yeast notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color without much head or lace
Flavor: The flavor is on the light side too, slightly tart apple, minimal sweetness
Palate: The body is light, with a soft carbonation, and a short duration
For some reason I was in a cider mood today, but this didn’t totally hit the spot. It isn’t bad, but it’s a little thin in flavor and feel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light yellow with a head that lasts til the finish. Light fruity aroma and tart flavor. Dry finish. Sort of like a saison beer with a thinner body and a little more sweetness. Pretty easy on the buds.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fizzless amber pour. Floral nose, dominated by cidre and not hops. It is nicely dry, tartness in the middle, not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear pale yellowish green, almost colorless. No visible head. Juicy apple character is simple and basic but complimented well by the mineral water / calcium / malic acid character. I do not get much of any hop character from this beer, in aroma, flavor or bitterness, only a small grassiness that may or may not be from the dry hops. There is some very mild astringency and bitterness present that may be from hops or may just be from the malic acid. Off-dry, lightly bitter, medium acid. Drinkable but forgettable due to it’s simplicity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
What I loved about this cider, most of all, was how far it went to matching the flavor profile of the best English ciders I’ve had. That may seem curious in light of the hopping, but at any rate, there’s a crisp and slightly tart flavor with tempered apple notes. Pairs extremely well with food, including dessert. On tap at Publican, Chicago.

On tap at Capitol Beer and taproom. Pours clear straw with little head. Aroma of citrus and apple aroma. Mild carbonated with noticeable hop profile for a cider. Decent and interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fresh apples with a background of floral hops. The flavor is a bit watery with apples and a touch of florals… no bitterness with a sweet and fruity finish. Not as sweet as some other ciders I’ve had. I’m really not a cider guy. I was hoping for more hop character with this one.
