3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Draught at the Hessen Haus
Pours a golden color with a very small head that is actually well retained, which is weird for cider but it’s kind of cool.
The aroma is tart and oaky, some mild funk, crisp apple. The cider is pungent and remarkable smelling at first I had it at an 8 for aroma but I brought it down a point because over the course of the pint the aroma faded till it was really quite boring, strange.
The flavor is tart and fairly sweet, it finishes dry so that’s a plus. The cider is very apple-y, a little oaky, and fairly tart with a mild spiciness.
Not too bad.
