Small sample at the cidery. Pale yellow-gold pour with a bit of fizzy head that dies quickly...dry grassy nose, light tart-dry apple nose, little apparent sugariness...faint touches of sweetness (caramel) in the body, but mostly light tartness, with a drying and somewhat mineralic finish; moderate to strong acidity...carbonation level moderate, body light but not watery. Pretty decent easy-drinking cider but certainly not one of the more interesting productions of this cidery. I think this may have been the first thing I tried from these guys, and one of the first alcoholic ciders I ever had in fact; surprised I never rated it before.

Draft sample. The cider is a clear yellow with no head. Apples, crust, brown sugar, and musty straw in the aroma. Sweet at first, then dry and acidic. Medium body and high carbonation. mcberko (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
On tap at Schilling, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out medium sweet apples, some apple core and a touch of caramel. Flavour tastes like ripe apple cores, with medium sweetness and some prominent pithy notes. Apple cores galore - this works pretty well. Nice one.

Draft - Cooked apple. Pale gold. Sweet, light apple and a light rounded finish. Not crisp, but rounded and a bit boring. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
[Tap] Sampled at Cider Summit Chicago 2015. Light yellow pour with no head. Spritzy carbonation. Dry green apple aromas and flavors. Tart finish. Decent.

Bottle @ The Festival 2014. Clear pale yellow pour with white foam and a decent amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a vanilla and sweet fruit nose to it good acidity, though. Hints of citrus zest and yeast, too. Flavor is well balanced, but maybe a bit more on the acidic side than I would have liked. Still, it’s a pleasant cider. Lots of apple character, both sweet and tart. slowrunner77 (12451) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"a little tartness and an ever so slight hint of funk add another layer to this crisp and pleasantly refreshing, yet flavorful cider. there’s also a hint of spice in the aroma especially, though subtle. Nicely done." fidelis83 (2480) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Greenish yellow gold pour with a small, quickly fading clear layer of bubbles. Aroma is tart apple, fruity and light doughy yeast, a hint of booziness and wax lips candy. Flavor is sweet apple up front, some nice sweet floral notes, a little tart apple then some dusty minerality, hints of berry fruit and light oily booziness to the finish. Light body with a light, but spritzy and blanketing carbonation, juicy then slightly dry feel. Good stuff overall, maybe a little messy with the booziness and doughy yeast, but still quite enjoyable.

Offers a very clear pale golden color with a quicker than champagne rise and fall head, a few tiny bubbles are offered. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2013
The aroma is cool, apple-y, a little boozy, some clay… no spoiled meat.
Flavor is lightly sweet, a touch too boozy as well. It tastes a little like cheap white wine… which I’m not one to criticize but it’s what Charles Shaw is for… amIrite? It’s got a decent apple flavor and finishes dry. It’s got some good minerallity.
At ÆppelTreow’s tasting barn. Hazed straw yellow with no head. Aroma of apples, tannins and spices. Taste is spicy with apples, tannins spices with a tart dry finish.
