3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Don’t usually drink cider, but thought I would have this while relaxing outside. Got a growler without expecting much. It tastes like a good cider. I don’t really get pecans or anything. Maybe there are hints of stuff in it, but I am not experienced enough to pick it out. It is sweet but also tart. Tastes like apple, like you would expect it to. Enjoyable. Can only drink a glass at at time though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yes, good overall cider experience, spices are not in yer face, goes over well. Aroma is mildly volatile apple. Decent co2 for a warmer brew. Yes, each end to a slug is not bad. Written in memory of cider tramp. At times the spices do try to come forward in the pecan or cinny. Over, hides the alky well, you’d never know this was 8%.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 16 oz can at Three Acres, 6/9/14
Aroma: The nose is right on what they describe, pie-like: full of cinnamon, pecans, and apple
Appearance: The beverage pours a clear golden color without much head or lace to it
Flavor: It isn’t nearly as sweet as you’d expect, nicely balanced, sweet, spice, and dryness
Palate: It has a decent feel, with a plus carbonation, minimal stickiness, and a light dryness
I’ve never found anything in the cider category that I have enjoyed nearly this much. Honestly, I went into super skeptical. The combination sounds great, but I couldn’t believe it. Bottom line, Totally Roasted totally works for me.

Pours clear straw golden with an aggressive white fizzy head that immediately settles to nothing after the pour. Nose involves tart apple skin, light cinnamon spice, and some buttery nutty pie crust. Somewhat sweet, quite tart. Lighter body, crisp, active, with a drying tart finish. Nice, tasty cider. Very quenching and drinkable, with nice subtlety.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16 Oz Can- Quickly dissipating head. Very clear color- straw. Subtle nose with a hint of the cinnamon in the apple. Somewhat sweet beginning with the hint of cinnamon warmth at the end. Oddly displeasing... I’d like to taste more vanilla, but the nutty -something- gets in the way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a chilly spring Saturday afternoon. Appearance is like any other cider, pale gold with no head. Aroma is pretty great with pecan, vanilla, roast, apple, and cinnamon notes. Taste is surprisingly sweet, really hits you first thing out of the gate, light carbonation, still getting pecan and vanilla notes which sets this apart from other ciders I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from umich03jm. Pours a very light amber, light white wine. Aroma is tart apples but there’s a subtle spice mixed in. Some vanilla and wood. Flavor leans dry and tart but is inviting. Some subtle flavors that I have trouble describing but add complexity a work well. Finishes tart but tasty. Interesting, balanced and easy to drink. Works very well; nice one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Clear and yellow pour. Sweet apple and mild vanilla nose. Taste is of apple and of apple pie spices. Lighter cinnamon and vanilla hints, especially in the finish. Dry overall. This is pretty good. There is definitely more going on compared to the average cider.
