2 Towns The Bad Apple
Bottle - Boozy apple and yeasty. Clear gold with micro bubbles. Sweet and very tart, effervescent and a bit of a harsh finish. Not great.

2 Towns Traditions Riverwood (2013 Vintage)
Draught at Schilling Cider House, Seattle, as Riverwood Brut
Pale yellow color. Crisp cider, fresh apple feeling, off-dry, the light residual sweetness is pleasant, moderately acidic, and a bit of astringency in the final.
Very good.

2 Towns The Dark Currant
Draught at Schilling Cider House, Seattle
Dark ruby color with pink head. The aroma is dusty, like peppers, light berries. Very dry mouthfeel, I can get some fruit, but itís indiscernible, the final is dry and a bit astringent.
It kind of has the currant character, that doesnít work well in the dry, in my opinion.

2 Towns The Bad Apple
Draught at Schilling Cider House, Seattle
Pale yellow color. The cider qualities are not impressive, the aroma is too boozy, some fuel, the mouthfeel is semi-dry, moderate acidity. Chaotic.

2 Towns Made Marion Marionberry Cider
Draught at Schilling Cider House, Seattle
Red cherry color. Mild aroma of ripe berries, a bit vinous. Off-dry, with delicate berry flavor, not much apple cider, and light astringency in the final.
Not really a cider, but nice.

Hazy pour gives way to white foam and releases the aroma of a bag full of sweet apples. The haziness gives it a nice texture. Finishes with just a hint of sour. Thereís a lot of interesting flavors in this one.

2 Towns Master Reserve Batch No. 01
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours slightly golden perry color with some white bubbles. Aroma of smooth, dry cider. Arguably med body. Flavor is astringent, woody, old apples. Not a bad thing that. Very dry. Wood seems to flow away, but the astringency remains. Making me think of wrinkled apples. Itís beginning to seem lightly tart. Very good cider. Might be able to compete with some of the Normandy products.

2 Towns The Dark Currant
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours brilliant red berry, clear with a pink head that left rapidly. Aroma suggests dark grapey jam. Med minus body. Flavor is tart black currant. Not grapey jam cause it sure isnít sweet. Itís even astringent. Nice stuff.

Bomber. Pours bright darkish red with a purplish smear. Surprisingly the aroma is primarily apple with a follow on red berry. Near med body, maybe. Itís surprisingly tart. And very marion. Like jam, except no sugar and itís tart. Decent enough.

2 Towns The Dark Currant
On tap @ Taps Barrel House. Sort of a lighter red color with a lot of pink and short lived pink foam. Strong currant, grape, and berry aroma here. Comes off a bit soda-like. Fairly sweet and fruit forward, though there is a bit of acidity here. Oak aging seems to add a touch of tannin and dryness. Maybe just a bit of butterscotch in there as well? Fine enough.

This is a bit dryer than most but is still vaguely in the soda pop range of cidres. This is perfectly clear and tastes like less sweet apple juice w/ a pretty nice floral note and some Smarties candy. Itís a bit watery on the palate but I prefer that to too sweet and sticky so based on that I am willing to say that this is not revolting.

Small (1 or 2 oz.) pour at Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival. Consumed on 2-6-16. Pours a clear yellow to gold with a small amount of beige head. Lemon, lemongrass, and blood orange scents. Dry tartness in the aroma. Middle Eastern food flavor. I do get the hops in the taste (Citra or Mosaic?). Mineral, celery, and rhubarb. Tastes really good! Beer-like palate.

On tap at Schilling, pours a clear blonde with a medium white head. Aroma is intense, with lots of fresh ginger root drowning out everything else. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of ginger root and medium dry apples. Not a big fan of this. Itís reasonable for what it is, but itís not a ginger bomb.

2 Towns The Dark Currant
On tap at Schilling, pours a hazy pinkish red with a small pink head. Aroma is very fruity, with very dry currants dominating. Flavour is the same, with medium sweet red currants upfront, with a touch of tartness and a lingering puckering dryness. Works well enough. A fruit-dominated (non-apple) cider. Decent.

On tap at Schilling, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out super dry apples with a light farmhouse bent. Flavour is bone dry, with but very complex, with red apples, some light residual sweetness, and lots of alcohol. Finishes somewhat sweet and very boozy. Despite the harshness, I found this enjoyable.

Flavour is complex, with notes of champagne yeast, medium sweetness and crisp green apples. Very crisp, champagne-y and highly drinkable. Excellent.

Flavour is intense, with lightly tart green apples, low-medium sweetness and alcohol. Quite intense flavours - could use some refining, but itís quite nice for what it is.

750 mL corked bottle poured, shared by Chris C. Thanks! Near transparent pour with no head. Jet black bottle and label, I expected a dark cider to pair. Fresh apple aroma. Cider aroma really. I have a hard time differentiating cider aromas that donít have additional additives. Juicy apple flavor with a refreshing, cool finish. Not nearly the amount of barrel presence as I expected. Still, great flavor and quenching finish. Awesome cider.

This is probably the best Cider out there. I donít particularly love the taste of Ciderís, so when you make one 10.5% alcohol, I can enjoy it in that way.

Rating #1517 - 17.03.2015 - On tap at Amplified Ale Works. Clear, pale, faintly yellow colour, fairly carbonated, bubbly foam dissipates rapidly. Aroma is fresh cut apples. Palate is more, some ginger sweet notes, balanced by the dryness provided by the ripened fruit and alcohol . Not boozy in the slightest though, very drinkable. Crisp, balanced, delicious. Not overly ginger-forward, just a lovely complement to the crisp, well achieved cider.

I was surprised to see the amount of criticism regarding this cider. Itís a heavy alcohol by volume at 10.5% for 500ml from Oregon , gluten free and 4% honey wine. It pours heavily with the honey visible floating in this golden liquid. Iíve had the opportunity to enjoy the best of the best when it comes to ciders and while this is certainly no DuPont, other ciders Iíve had recently can not hold a candle to this one, including Angry Orchard. I was impressed, and will pick up some more next time Iím able to.

2 Towns Nice & Naughty - Barrel Aged
On tap at Schilling, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma is perfumey as hell, with lots of barrels and booze. Flavour is hugely barrel heavy and boozy, with loads of whiskey, booze and perfume. Too abrasive and lacking balance and cohesion. Not a complete trainwreck but itís pretty hard to drink. Meh.

Just not a very good cider. Opposite of complex with a quite medicinal taste. I know itís 10% but it doesnít have to be harsh - thatís the opposite of what cider is supposed to be, in fact.

On tap @ Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Hazed straw colored beer with a thin layer of white foam. A lot sweeter than expected. A lot of apple pie, some apple juice, and a hint of banana. Maybe some grape as well. Light pie crust and slight spice notes, too. Not bad, just a bit sweeter than I usually like for a typical draft cider.

2 Towns Prickle Me Pink
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours bright magenta. A is ? made me think watermelon, but thatís likely due to the color. Med minus body. Flavor is sort of mild Hawaiian Punch, and thatís not just due to the color. Partly because itís fruity, and partly because it finishes a lot less than dry.
