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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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. I’m not a big cider guy, but this one wasn’t bad at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cheesy apples in a light but authentic cidery aroma. Color is an unattractive hay yellow doused in water.
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.
This one needs a can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. I’m sure it will sort itself out if I’m 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!

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.

[1851-20081103] Tap. Dry apple juice aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick bubbly white head. Dry cider apple juice flavour that’s slightly tart. Light body. Not bad but light and fluffy.
