COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
RedStreak is a proper English style draft cider. With its hazy lemon hue, scent of ripe apples and just a touch of oak, RedStreak has a crisp, tart finish that pairs perfectly with your favorite mature cheddar. First discovered in Herefordshire in the 1630s, the Redstreak bittersharp apple produced a cider so delicious it was deemed to be ‘fit for kings.’ Whether paired or on its own, RedStreak Cider is your next drink.

Was a guest brew at Harvest. Consumed while walking. Poured a pale color with no visible head. Smells and tastes of tarted apples, white wine dregs, eucalyptus and yeast. Nice and sessionable.

Cider! Went to burger bar and had this on tap, just cause! Pours a clear gold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a faint fruit amd wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a sour fruit and crisp finish. Easy to drink but nothing to wow me.

Pale gold with scant white head / Elegant, somewhat complex, floral nose of apple and oak / Light to medium body, clean and crisp, soft carbonation, mostly dry / Clean, somewhat complex flavors of malo, apple, lemon, mineral, and oak / A terrific, European-style cider.

On tap at Revolution. Pours a crystal clear, pale yellow colored body with no head. Aroma is crisp and lightly tart apples with a touch of sweetness. A hint of oak and champagne. Flavor is similar. Clean and crisp apples with a light sweetness and tartness. A touch of oak again before this finishes dry and lightly tart with a hint of sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a clean, crisp, light body and a champagne-ish carbonation. Overall, a really solid cider. Very fresh apples with a light tartness and touch of sweetness. Extremely easy to drink with a pleasant dryness. Pretty impressed.

I consumed a few too many of these at the Revolution Party. Clear yellow thin head. Aroma of light malt lemon some hay funk. Tart lemon citrus bright strong carbonation. Dry with yeast and funk. Really interesting and tasty. Wow I wasn't expecting this. 8/4/8/4/16 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (2361) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Full sampler at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL.. Showed almost clear, with quickly diminishing bubbles and no lacing. The nose was pleasant sweetness and apple. The sweetness dominated any tartness in the flavor which was basically fruity, lightly syrupy, but thin. Soft carbonation sealed the deal on my impression of a bland palate cleanser.

A pale yellow cider with no head. In aroma, nice fragrant apple pulp with light chalky notes, very nice. In mouth, a light mineral tart apple with chalk, acidity, apple skins. On tap at Mash Tun Festival, May 19 2011.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Sampler @ the GI Clyborn location. The color is pale straw. Aroma is drying, slightly acidic, and fruity apples. Well balanced not sweet and very well done for an English style. Flavor is fruit forward than good dryness and mineral apple without the sweet. I really enjoyed this cider.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft at GI clybourn. Pours an attractive pale gold with a nice mousse on top that fades reasonably quickly. Good flow of bubble. Nose starts with some light sulfur and a distinct fruity quality. Musty cellar and tartness in the nose, then sweetness and an almost savory note. The sulfur fades fast leaving a great floral apple blossom note. Really great. Medium prickly carbonation, light body. A bit more body would be fantastic. Good balance of sweetness and acidity. Great floral quality on taste witha persistent ripe apple character. Medium tartness and great fruit flavor. Pretty fantastic cider here.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft in a sampler at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours almost clear, with a piss-yellow gold hue and no head. The aroma is sweat and apples with some sugary sweetness. The flavor is crisp, tart, refreshing apples and not as sweet or sweaty as the nose. Light-bodied, with surprisingly high carbonation on the palate for not seeing any in the glass. So-so cider.
