3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at State&Lake at the Wit Hotel, downtown. I finally got to bite into a Virtue Cider. And on a hotel bar tap, too. Color is lighter than the lightest beer out there, with a short, fizzy head thatís gone as soon as you blink. Smell is kind of pale, with just a slight tang of apple juice. I found the taste to be rather light, with tart apple in the back of my throat, just a touch of sweetness. It resists your attempts to swig it down, inviting introspection instead. Seems very fully attenuated, although the abv is no more than most beers.

Very pale straw yellow colour.
Spicy apple scent.
Apple, honey, spice flavours.
Not bad....but a little dull...not as lively as it could be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy mostly sweet and lightly tart apple. Itís a transparent dull yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of sweet apple. The finish trunk heavily tart with some lemon and sour oak. Itís light bodied with light carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 isnít a sugar bomb. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at Dash In - Thsi cider smells of green apples. Itís light and mildly sweet, a definite tart character, and a dry finish. Itís well done and for me was more of a slow drinker than the typical draft cider.
