Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pour looks like Chardonnay, very light whitish yellow, clear appearance with a bubbly head that is gone in no time. A touch spicy, dull apple core, slightly grassy, herbal aroma that isn’t really all that interesting. Tangy, lightly tart but fairly sweet apple juicy, light pear, sugary, a touch herbal flavor. Eh, not horrible but not super good either.

draft. Palest yellow, thin head. Big tart sour pear, quite bright and strong. Milder finish, white wine. Alright

Clear yellow with tiny white head. Aroma of apples and white wine. Taste is basically the same. Really dry.

This is a really good beer. Really easy to drink. Smooth flavor and nice after taste. Ace really does taste like champagne and like champagne you only want to have 1 or 2.

I can’t put my finger on it but I am beginning to think ciders are not a style I like very much. While this one is not bad I just feel that I would rather be drinking an IPA, Belgian, or other lighter weight beer. Even so thanks to whomever sent it my way.

Aroma / Appearance - The transparent body and stark white head are both fairly predictable for a cider. Tart sour apples hit the senses with a mission. It smells like sticking your nose into a plate full of warm applesauce.

Flavor / Palate - Tart and ripe Granny Smith apples are the primary focus. A dry finish has vinous aspects but after a few sips I find myself thinking about what to open next. Despite being a refreshing option for a long holiday weekend I don’t think I’ll be seeking out more ciders any time soon.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with plenty of carbonation but no head or lacing. Smell is apples and champagne, taste follows suit. One of the dryer ciders out there; my favorite. But why did the abv drop recently?

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Light golden pour with no head. Flower, wax, green apple, Californian Sauvignon Blanc. Some bitterness. More wine than cider. Not bad but want more character as a cider.

Half point of tap, slight bit of fine white lave at edge of glass pale gold. Nose of Apple.semi dry with more apples and a touch of granny Smith tartness.shower finish.some light tannin.respectable if not remarkable cider

3.7
jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Yellow-gold with no head / Stylish, lightly sweet, nose of apple, grapes, and corn, with a hint of barnyard / Medium body, steely, resinous, and mostly dry with just a hint of sugar / Clean flavors of green apple brandy, pear, resin, and hay / Not really champagne-like, but a fine American cider.
