The aroma is fruity and plastic like with apples both tart and sweet. Its also sour and funky. The appearance is pale gold with nice carbonation. The flavor is like the aroma and not pleasant. The palate is typical for a cider and the finish is medicinal. Overall this is bad.

Bottle purchased somewhere in Chicago with my mentor, CMUBEERMAN, as the guide, (by the way, I have a bunch of ratings to enter thanks to CMUBEERMAN). Pours clear orange gold, bubbly head that quickly disappears. Aroma is apple and slight vinegar. Flavor is funky with some vinegar, but still has a crispy apple flavor. I like this because it’s not too sweet. This is way more drinkable than most of the ciders I’ve tasted.

imdownthepub (14037) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2008
Bottle, 500ml from Morrisons, Banbury. Pale greenish gold with no head. Reasonably well set up cider, quite basic apple with slightly earthy, farmy notes then a lingering sweetness. reasonable.

hayduke (5100) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 27, 2008
At $5.99 this was expensive so you would hope it would be good. And so it was. From the bottle it poured a very light yellow with a tiny head. Nose is of tart apples. Very fresh mouthfeel. Flavor is of course apples but there are some other kind of spicy flavors. Finish is tart and dry. A superior Cider.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pale yellow, clear. Aroma is apple and some faint funk, a bit of cheese. Flavor is apple, some woodsy notes, a bit of cheese, and some sour notes. A bit of aspirin springs up oddly on the finish. I rather liked this, but it was quite unusual. Sort of like a cross between a clean American cider and the wild French ciders.
