3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Volo. Pretty much clear with a slight green tinge and no head. Sweet apple with some skins, becomes dry, somewhat crisp, an odd hint of nail polish that throws me completely off. But there is a u-turn, almost like the nail polish was just there to throw you off so that it could redeem itself with a nice crisp dryness that cleanses the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-07-22. Crisp pale yellow body, headless. Aroma of sweet apples, accents are straw and wood like but that is not quite it. Flavour is crisp, moderately acidic throughout which is pleasant and refreshing. Notes of apple must, fruit, ad vinous alcohol in the finish. Average bodied palate, modest to light carbonation. On tap at Volo, Toronto

Draught at ’The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013’. Pours a clear yellow with a spare diminishing bubbly white head. Nice aroma, dry with lots of tart apples. Flavour of tart apples, just a bit sweet -- lovely. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Rhino summer fest. This apple cider was rather fruity, with some grape flavour obtained from the yeast and barrelling.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow pour - bubbly white head. The aroma is fresh and bright. Light apple and a touch of pear. Tannins are low but cider is quite fruity. Modest tartness lends it balance. A pretty simple, enjoyable cider.
