COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of a hard apple cider is similar to Strongbow, an English-style dry cider with pronounced apple aroma & taste leading into a nice dry finish.

Pours a light yellow gold with next to no head. Mildly effervescent. Faint aroma of granny smith apples. A fairly light bodied and dry cider, tasting similar to a Hard Core cider (I didnít try the Strongbow to compare it to), and also similar to my quick and easy home made cider. Okay, so its a hard cider, but nothing really exceptional. A shot of Jamesonís would have been quite nice in it, however. I wasnít inspired to try another glass, but was inspired to pick up some Eric Bordelet cider

Pure crap, allow me to ellaborate. Aroma and taste were exactly the same. Both smelled like cheap white wine. Had that shoddy buttery white grape aroma found in cheap white wines, possibly boxed wine level bad. Very thin and no apple character as the brewery claims should exist.

Clean clear yellow pour, very bright, with no head. Light sour apple aroma. Bright sweet fruit, that continues to get more and more sour as I drink it. So sour, itís dry. Clean, with a sticky sweet after palalte. Flavor is a clingy alcohol and sour apple tart.

Honey Gold Coloring with No Head. Dry Cider/Apple Aroma. Carries Into Taste. Overall a Decent Dry Cider and Good Initial Attempt by a Brewpub.

Looks match the pale yellow green of a Golden Delicious, or the peel of a pear, perfectly clear, with no head, outside of a slim ring thatís gone as quick as you can say, "Johnny Appleseed". Aroma is slight, but distinctly apple, nothing much to speak of. Crisp, appley bite right at the top, apple flavor continues, but nothing else is provided to play with the senses. Light bodied, dry, fruity finish, thin mouthfeel, but excellent drinkability...for a cider. Iím not much or a cider afficiando, but this one does the least of what is asked of it, and no more. Was supposed to be brewed to match the character of Strongbow, which is already on tap constantly here, so Iím not sure what the point is, except maybe for the brewer to check another style off his list? An intriquing addition to the anniversary celebration, but nothing Iíll miss when it goes...

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
fairly clear amber hughes no head. Smells of apple juice touches of pears very very sweet. Highly carbonated but pretty thin. Flavor is apple juice touch of pair and grain.. very sweet juicy .. this doesnít seem to be a beer to me.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Golden yellow color. A little plastic in the aroma.... Mild, moderate sweetness, moderate carbonation, low tang, apple finish subverted by a slight paper edge. A first foray into the style but holding up the mass-market ciders as the model is a big mistake: even if you perfect it, itís a poor cider. Go to some English festivals and have some real ciders on cask (whether dry or sweet) and youíll have a model that can get you to the promised land. But, of course, commercial considerations are important, and two non-Ratebeer friends who were with me at the 8th anniversary party thought this was pretty tasty. (on tap at brewpub)

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Dry aroma with some apple evident, but not nearly as appley as say, Woodchuck.No head and no lace, but I didnít necessarily expect it. No visible carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Took awhile to convert my taste buds to cider after a couple of THís brews. It did improve after several sips. Nevertheless, TH should stick to beer. Not a bad 1st attempt, however.

Not really similar to Strongbow at all. This cider has the appropriate, however light, apple aroma. It is light gold and still. Flavor is very light apples with a little sour bite. Unfortunately the palate is very poor; it seems literally watered down and very thin. The apple flavor is there, but it needs a little more body.

Town Hall 8th Anniversary, Saturday release: Gold color with no head. Aroma was incredibly faint. If I didnít know it was a cider, I wouldnít have guessed apple. Well... the taste was certainly apple, and bone dry to boot. Syrupy mouthfeel. Something almost a bit sour about this that did not sit right. A noble attempt at cider, but about average.
