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.

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.

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.

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.

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

At a restaurant in Québec City, decanted into a carafe - I assume it was from a bottle. Very pale gold with zero head, no bubbles either. Nice dry aroma - slightly tart apple, sugar, a nice dustiness to prevent it from being cloying. Taste was refreshing, but pretty standard - fresh apples, sweet, a little tartness and a hint of alcohol - it finished almost candy-sweet as it warmed, but still hit the spot. Very thin body, only moderate carbonation even for a "real" cider, crisp and no aftertaste.
