Bottled. Clean yellow color, pretty still once poured. Light apple smell, more sweet than a Granny Smith should deliver. Taste has a slight tartness. Just not much character Which isn’t to say it’s not an apple-y distraction. It’s just nothing I’d make a U-turn for.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoping for a tart dry cider but it was rather sweet and thin tasting, not preferable to granny smith apples anyway but I the taste was crisp and a little tangy.

Poured into my Leinenkugel’s pint glass. Pours a very light, clear golden color with a lot of carbonation. Smell is very much champagne, but with bold tart apples and a touch of sugar. Taste is tart up front and on the finish, with some sweetness in the middle. There is some light sourness detected, but not much. Drinks a lot like champagne too with all the carbonation. Very easy to drink.
Overall: I wouldn’t say this is dry like the bottle says. It’s a sweet cider that is very tart. However you want to put it, it’s a very good cider.
