3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very light pale gold color with a bit of fizz. Nose is granny apple with sweet juicy notes and a touch of dusty earth. The palate is lightly carbonated with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Nice fresh apple notes without any artificial sweetness, however there is a lack of any complexity... very drinkable just not interesting.

Corked and caged bottle. Pours very thing, translucent, pale yellow. Can seriously see straight through it, looks like very light pee. Sweet apple and honey. Taste is lightly tart apple with honey. Very crisp and clean. Incredibly refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour on tap at Cider Summit 2013 (Navy Pier, Chicago, IL). Pours a richer straw hue, mellow haziness grows on the appearance. Gentle froth whitish head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are mellow apple, gentle sweetnsss, a bit of straw, yeast, dryness really grows. Some firm straw, dryness, earth, grass. Gentle yeastiness grows, touch of champagne, but not rich open big carbonation. Middle is a touch of sweetness, apple. Backend shows gentle dryness, firm carbonation and dryness linger on. This one is fun. Dry and richly flavored, albeit itís not sweet. Assertive in itís dryness. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a smattering of bubbles that dissipate almost instantly. Aroma of apples and a hint of sulfur and little else. The flavor is a little better than the aroma with a sweetness that seems almost artificial. Mild apple flavor with bits of blue and raspberries. Medium body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet kind of sticky mouthfeel. I wasnít really impressed with this one, it drinks ok but its a bit boring.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This cork and caged bottled brew #257 from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body. The mild aroma was golden apple. The dry crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish dry aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of golden apple. An OK cider just nothing special.
