4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear light straw, no head. Clean and gently fleshy Apple aroma, lightly tart. Big bright flavor that’s gently tart and has a nice clean Apple flavor through it, gently tart but not puckering or green-Apple-y, but not just plain red apple either. Intricately complex for being just a regular cider. Cideries, take note! This is exceptional. Neither dry nor sweet. Perfect balance.

Bottle at Hopscotch. Rich acidic apple character, reminds me of my childhood green apples, quite nice and refreshing, gentle sour edge, ginger notes, fairly dry finish. Quite acidic overall but does work for me, yummy.

Very astringent aroma with a light apple undertone. Pale clear sunshine yellow. Super funk dry almost wine like. Lasting dry after the sip.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Foco. Pours a super light, just slightly tinged yellow appearance with no head. The aroma has apple sauce, lightly burnt wood, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fairly dry but also kind of boozy. Bland red apple flavor with a little bit of spice. Very juicy. Boring but drinkable.

Bottle. Pours very light, clear yellow with white head. Aroma is very apple, yeasty, very fruity. Taste is dry, tart, fresh apples, light, crisp, lots of carbonation. Overall, okay- just needs a bit more flavor.,

A semi dry cider, once agian a cidery throwing ginger in there which in this one is pretty spicy giving it a dryer note.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden. Smell is lightly of apple and maybe almost oaky. White wine like smell and taste. Dry, and lightly tart with enough sweetness to balance. Low carbonation. Really reminds me of a nice balanced wine and cider mix. Very nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours with a notable lack of brilliance. not cloudy per se, but far from bright. hmm.
the aroma is fairly mundane. no harshness, hints of fruitiness, faint alcohol perfume. very slight citrus - lemon - tartness, occasional mineral notes. nothing "off" but nothing special.
some low quinine notes to the bitterness, fairly one-note with a restrained apple skin character, low fruitiness, low sweetness that is uninteresting. would like a floral note, honey, musty, fruity note, something - anything really to make this more interesting.
significant astringency but somehow it’s still lacking structure. I think it’s the mineral notes that are getting in the way.
wouldn’t turn down a free one but wouldn’t seek this one out again.
