Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
On tap, Ginger’s Tavern. Pale green-yellow. Slightly sulphury apple nose is fairly nondescript. Soft, fairly sweet but with some tartness in the finish. A meh sort of cider.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Appearance is clear light-pear juice. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple-pear. Taste is medium sweet, apply, moderately dry finish. Light body, moderately fizzy, minimal syrup. Pleasant for what it is, accessible.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Draft... Crystal clear, colorless cider with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Smells like freshly sliced Red Delicious apple with touches of oak and vanilla. The flavor starts off fairly sweet and fruity, but quickly becomes tart and dries out. Medium-bodied and astringent with fizzy carbonation. Iím not a big cider guy, but this one wasnít bad at all.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2005
Very pale, highly carbonated cider. Aroma is slightly sweet, a bit acidic with a light buttery character. Flavour is like crisp Granny Smith apples. Bright malic acid tartness. Pretty simple, but refreshing cider.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
The Lure:
Cheesy apples in a light but authentic cidery aroma. Color is an unattractive hay yellow doused in water.

The Festivities:
Tart apple peels drown in a soda-like sweet fizz. Quite watery moments, it does its job nonetheless, which is to quench and nothing more.

Transcendence:
This one needs a can.

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Ignoring the fact that this was not what I ordered.. :sigh: it was enjoyable. Practically transparent, very efferevescent. Funky fruit and cheese aroma? Nice combination of sweet and tart. Very tasty but a little odd.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden straw yellow. A light apple sweetness covers the slightly acidic note at the front. Medium bodied, very fine carbonation. Something odd right away though, a bit of sulfite flavor perhaps. Dry apples, a touch of acid, and a bit of sweetness. Nice enough, and easy drinking and sessionable.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle at Cest What?
Appearance: plain, clear light golden 3-
Nose: Fresh apples, clean aroma, papierowka apple like. Clean straight and very refreshing.
Flavor/Palate : Lighter with gentle carbonation. Clean , sweet with lighter apple flavour. Good straight cider.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
On tap @ Henry House in Halifax. Both the menu and our server said this was a McAuslan cider, but I could find no reference to it on the brewery website. Anyway, I really enjoyed this sobi feel compelled to add it. Iím sure it will sort itself out if Iím wrong. This presented as nearly clear, with fine champagne-like bubbles. Fresh, beautiful appleskins aroma, full-on Macintosh, bursting out of the glass, hints of spice. Tart, fresh crisp apple palate, no spices on the palate. Gets the salivary glands moving! Dry tart finish. I thought this was an awesome cider!

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2003
Extremely carbonated and clear appearance. Without surprises, but still well done. Very sweet apple taste with tart notes in the middle and very dry finish. Crisp, light and refreshing
