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.

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.

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.

500, capped. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with no head or lace. Big crisp apple skin nose, lots of red apples and herbs, kind of a bit of thyme and marjoram. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Red skins and herbs persist across the mid palate through the finish.

Hazy straw yellow. Aroma is terrific, tart grassy hop and apple. Flavor has a light sweetness, leafy, citrusy hop balanced very well with the apple, finish is snappy. The highlight is the great blend of hop and cider.
