COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

Crystal clear, no head. The aroma is sweet apples. Light bodied, sweet, bright fresh apple flavor, crisp dry palate, with a nice Granny Smith like acidity. Nice clean finish, good but simple cider.

Best hard cider out there in my opinion. Clear, crisp, sweet yet dry. Really is not a true "beer" in fairness but very refreshing if looking for something different.

Sparkly bronze, but no head. Medium apple juice aroma, but a bit too clean. Again, the flavor is of apple juice. Pretty straightforward. A bit sweet, and also rather crisp, parching finish.

The label features a cute drawing of an angry tree. Neutral aroma and a dry, fresh taste. Crisp (as advertised). Light, tingly, a bit of sweetness, but mostly dry and pleasantly sharp. It doesn’t cross any boundaries, but it is a good cider.

(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Very nice tart apple aroma with not much excess sweetness. Flavor is natural and sweet apples with a very mild chardonnay dry finish coming up after it. Quite refreshing and very easy to drink.

Sam Adams cider? Bottle from Half Time. Pours light gold with a few bubbles. Aroma of mixed yellow and green apples. Near med body. It’s a bit sweet, and there’s not quite enough skin aspect to balance that. However, the sugar leaves eventually and the skin bitter stays, so it’s ok. Fresh and clean. But fairly generic.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Draught. Served in a pint glass rimmed with cinnamon and sugar. Damn. Pours clear orangey yellow with no head, aromas of apple skins, sweet cider, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet apple, lightly tart, with some bitter fruit skins. Really pretty drinkable, with medium carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Not nearly as sweet as expected; better than Woodchuck’s offerings. [885]

MicroGrog (449) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2011
At least they let me mix a six. Clear, sparkling, deep orange/yellow body. Smells just like Spanish apple soda. Prickly carbonation. A bit thicker then I would of expected. Tart & snappy upfront, turning into pure white sugar & sour green apple flavoring. Husk & hard water. Chalky yeast. Grainy finish. This is a less diluted version of Woodchuck. The line for underage drinking starts here.

Aroma is crisp sweet apple. It’s not tart or bitter. It’s clean and fresh. Very easy to drink. Left my mouth watering for more. Its refreshing. Would drink again.

Drank from the tap in a Sam Adams pint glass, tangy aftertaste, golden color, good fall taste, surprisingly mild aroma
