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.

On tap at Schuba’s Chicago. Pours slightly cloudy slightly irridescent green. Flavor is bright and tart with just a touch of sweetness and a light alcohol note. One of the best American ciders I’ve had and in fact beats many at their own game as it has a good balance of tartness and fizziness.

[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ Bagby ][ $5 ][ Becher ][ 10.4.14 ]
>> Flat light golden near straw, little to no foam. Nose is green apple Jolly Rancher. Chemical, weak taste: sour green apple, English or American cider in style, cheap sparkling white wine. Mild paper finish. Hmm, pretty meh.

On tap @ Bagby Beer. Clear gold with a shirt lived white head. A lot of apple skin and smoked, baked apple. Slight citrus zest. Sort of a champagne and yeast note. Flavor is kind of heavy on the mineral and apple skin. Light tart and citric note. Cooked apple. Sort of sweet.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2014
On tap at Craftsman - Yellow pour with next to no head. Nose is white grape, dry apple, a little leather, and no spicing. Same taste--dry and clean with lots of white grape. Very crisp. Thinnish with ample carbonation.

NeoHippie2 (1033) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2014
On tap. Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is dry apple wine. Flavor is similar. Very crisp and refreshing. Still sweet enough to have some juicy apple notes but dry enough that it isn’t a sugar bomb. Tasty.

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2014
tap at Dash In - Thsi cider smells of green apples. It’s light and mildly sweet, a definite tart character, and a dry finish. It’s well done and for me was more of a slow drinker than the typical draft cider.
