On tap @ 21st Amendment during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a yellow appearance with a white head. Pretty bland, apple juicy nose with a hint of white wine. Pretty high sweetness. Juicy red apples with a slight bit of tartness. Really standard and simple but probably a good guest tap for a layman/MorÆn.

Bright pink coloured body with a very thin pink head. Aroma of sour grapes, apples and pomegranate. Light-bodied; Nice fresh fruit flavours at first with a lot of sugar and some malt. Aftertaste very clean with good fruit and alcohol tastes throughout. Overall, a good sample that even my wife likes - definitely nice to try. I sampled this pint on draught at Toronado in San Francisco, California on 28-June-2010.

The pour is a crystal clear pale straw color with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is green apple skins, yeast, and mild alcohol. The cider tastes quite young. There is sort of a muddled apple and yeast flavor with a fairly strong alcohol presence despite being fairly moderate in terms of ABV. The body is fine; light and crisp with a lively carbonation.

Clear yellow with a short lived fizzy white head. Strong apple aroma and taste with soda like carbonation.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
A blonde cider with a rather chemical applea aroma, added sugars, too sweet. In mouth, a rather light bodied, overcarbonated cider, uninspiring. Very sweet apple juice. On tap at Lodi brewpub, August 27 2009.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle labeled "Two Rivers Dry English Hard Apple Cider" 7.0% ABV. Pours with a clear yellow, chardonnay colored body with no head. Aroma of apple, light spice, dryness and some sweet caramel. Taste has a sweet and sour thing going on with light spice, oak tannins, and a touch of green bitter apple. Flat mouthfeel.

Had this at Rubicon. Golden colored cider with aroma of apples, perfume or wine. The flavor was mildly tart apples with hints of sweetness too. Eh.

I may try this again someday, because this bottle may have been corked. If it wasn’t, this is one bad beer in every way.

Bottle as Two Rivers Dry English Hard Apple Cider (7.0%). Waxed crown cap. Color is pale gold and slighty unclear. Aroma is quite clean, but more perfumey than apple. Thin to medium body with very little carbonation. Flavor is very clean, but very low intensity. Sort of green apple. It’s not very sweet, and only lightly tart. Very clean, but not exactly crisp. Maybe a very, very slight woodiness. Finishes rather astringent.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2007
(On tap) Clear, pale amber with basically no head. Sweetish aroma of fruit chewing gum. Rather light in body, fairly fruity flavours - sorta artificial Hubbabubba style. Only in the finish do the apples really show. Artificial and unclean cider. 190307
