In my opinion, this is the best cider beer out there. It beats your Redd’s and Angry Orchard’s by packing a wallop of apple with slight bitter finish. This is a contestant, smooth brew across the palate. Wow!

ChadPolenz (1700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: C1A New World Cider

AROMA: More sweet than dry (medium to med-dry range). Clean red apple aroma. Faint acid. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Golden/light amber hue. Near brilliant clarity. Slow steady CO2 visible. Small white foam and trace lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Sweeter palette than nose would suggest (but in no way cloying). Taste is akin to standard apple juice; no spices or additives. Light tartness/acidity on the backend with mostly clean finish. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Extremely smooth and refreshing. No linger acidity. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty much everything you expect in a standard hard cider. Solid, to-spec, and highly drinkable. 8/10

drpimento (3173) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2016
This is a very generic cider with a pale amber appearance. Aroma is sweet apple. Flavor is like nose plus the carbonic tang and not much else. Finish is fairly short and like flavor. Boring.

ordybill (1340) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2016
poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Has a fairly crisp flavor but is very sweet. Not a bad cider.

The measuring stick by which ciders should be compared. By that I mean, a true baseline-- aroma is a champagne-like apple. Headless pour, with a middle-of-the-road sweetness that is just sweet enough to not overwhelm. A bit sticky on the palate, almost syrupy. Not too sharp. A hint of tartness on the backend.

oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Golden colour, no head. aroma is apple, some sweetness, mild nectar and wood. Flavour is apples, some mild green apple skins as well as quite sugary notes. Flavour is similar. A bit too sugary, but while it was fridge cold it was atleast refreshing.

Vestlake (279) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 17, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours apple juice color. Aroma and taste are both apple juice. Good if you’re in the mood for cider.

minutemat (4421) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
355ml bottle @ ALB bar, Shrewsbury. Not sure if this was a seperate entry, as it’s from a bottle, but can’t be bothered entering a new one. Pours fairly clear gold, white bubbly head. Sweet apple aroma. Taste is smooth, slick with a syrupy sweet cider character. Pleasant, easy-drinking. Decent.

Bottle from Brains Wines, Netherton. Golden amber cider, some light carbonation. Aroma of apple juice. Taste is sweet apple juice and a little wood. Pretty run of the mill sweet cider.

Lots of carbonation slightly sour not as sweat as the other ciders out there, thought it was okay.
