Draft sample at BV. Poured hazy pale color with a minimal head that diminished slowly with little lacing. Medium floral apple aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium tart apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Solid drinkable refreshing beverage.

Pint can. Pours a clear pale cidre gold, actually ahs a head that sticks and fizzed down to a froth.Smell is swee candied apple. Flavor is relatively sweet. IT is good for a sweet cidre though, with some eath notes, mustiness, and sweet green apple. Smooth with a hint of bittersweetness in the finish. Got it on sale for 9.99 and Im happy with that. Won’t be a go-to though, still waiting for a great dry cidre in 6 packs. Vandermill has plenty of them but thye put them in bombers. Stop that!

Draught at the HopCat, Grand Rapids, MI.
Clear yellowish golden colour with no head. Dry tart apple and mild chemical in the aroma. Very fresh apples, mild tartness and mild chemical notes in a tasty flavour. Highly drinkable.

Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a TGI white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of earthy apples that have a bit of sweetness and tartness. Flavor is full of tart apples with a slight sweetness and a bit of must.

16oz can, thanks to mikem409. Labeled 6.9%. Clear pale, whitish golden color. Nearly colorless. No head or lace. Medium-plus body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. A very light stickiness to the body, I don’t mind it. The more full body is pretty nice. Nice moderate sweet taste, light spice. Good balance to the taste, not too sweet at all, lightly dry. Nice crisp red apple flavor, kind of juicy; apple peel. Tasty cider.

Big can. Pours a clear yellow color with a small bubbly head. Very lively. A sweet dry yeasty apple nose. The flavor is rich tannins, some tart apple, very dry, light woody dryness. Very nice.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Spring Lake, MI). Pours a nice lively yellow hue, a mellow haziness with nice sunny glow, a touch of depth to it. Fizzy offwhite head atop as a mellow layer dies to a decent ring, ok lacing overall. Aromas are gentle sweet, red apple with touches of mellow spice, faint cinnamon, apple sweetness. Initial is lighter side of medium bodied, a touch of girth beneath with some fuzziness, yeast elements. Red apple sweetness meets a touch of tartness into the body. Red apple skin, touches of fleshy fresh harvested apples, a bit juicy. Backend is a bit yeasty, more dry but still with a bit of body. A perfectly serviceable standard product, a touch sweet for me but the backend and finish do some work to balance a bit. Touches of lingering apple juice, gentle yeastiness and fuzziness. For all the standard Ciders on the market, this does some work to balance a bit as opposed to being a sweet mess. Still think Red Streak is my go to from the Michigan family. Solid.

16 oz can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks mikem409). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with no head or lacing, but good carbonation. Smells and tastes of apple cider with some slight apple cider vinegar too. Nice and dry on the palate, but the mild vinegar keeps it average (at best). Not my fave.

On draught at the Publican

The cider pours a particularly pale color, it’s got a small head that actually has a bit of retention on the sides of the glass. A few lines of small bubbles within.

The aroma is floral, features some white grape, & some apple sweetness.

The flavor is tart, apple-y, florally spicy, and is neither particularly sweet nor dry.

Simple but enjoyable, not unlike a local favorite Sutliff...
