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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This sort of splits the different between a dry, champagne-like cider and the apple flavored soda pop kind. It’s not bad at all. It is an ever so slightly green tinged yellow color. Its nose is mild and slightly floral and it has a nice, crisp acidic bite on the tongue. There is a touch of sweetness and I wish there was a little more carbonation to cut this but other than that, I can’t really complain.

Transparent yellow pour. The nose is sweettart apple and notes of alcohol. This cider is impeccably crisp and clean, sweet and tart, and a nice dry alcoholic finish. Fine cider.
