altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle at Ken’s Pizza in Portland. Gold body with slight head. Nose is apples and fruit. Taste is subtle, of apples, yeast and some sugar. Nice in in the finish.

Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Taps slightly hazy golden. Aroma delivers a strong apple note, somewhat sweet and a little tart. Flavor delivers a typical cider taste, like apple juice but with an attitude. Body is firm, fizz is strong and sassy. Pick one.

Very light in color with low levels of carbonation. The nose reminds me of a box of apples that have been sitting out too long and have begun to get soft. Rich sweet apple gives way to a dry finish. Quite drinkable.

Can from LifeSource. Clear yellow in color. Musty apple nose with a little wet cardboard. Sweet and musty flavor. Tastes kind of mossy in a way. A touch of tartness in the finish. Drinkable cider.

svandyke (255) - USA - APR 17, 2015
12oz bottle- Very little head and very little carbonation. Extreme pale color, like white wine. Hint of apple but not much aroma. Not much of anything at the beginning of the taste and then the apple sweetness comes and then the dryness of the fermentation. All in all very balanced. Pretty decent

mcberko (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle at CiderWISE, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry apples with medium acidity. Flavour is simple, with medium sweet apples. Not a whole lot of complexity, but it’s competently constructed. Decent.

3.3
Ferris (16067) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle - Sweet Apple and odd stewed notes. Clear gold. Sweet light Apple and a clean finish. Basic, but OK.

The apple varieties listed on my bottle’s label are different than what’s listed here. Sounds like it varies batch to batch. In any case, if anyone is curious what it tastes like to ferment a bunch of good apple juice from the grocery store, it tastes exactly like this--if you’re lucky. It’s as bright and as clear as filtered apple juice and completely headless. It tastes mildly of apples and is just slightly sweet w/ a touch of acidity and some tannins that cling to the tongue. This is a light and very drinkable cider that does not seem to be garbaged up w/ a bunch of flavor extracts. It is probably not going to blow your mind but it’s pretty tasty if you are into such things.

Draft sample. Yellow pour, fizzy. Apple juice, pretty sweet, even a bit sugary.

Small taste at Biggie Wine & Liquor. Crisp, lightly vinous and refreshing with light sweetness and a dry finish. Pretty tasty for a cider.
