RBSG2016. Sweet ice cider arom, smells so yummy, makes my mouth water thinking about it. Pale yellow. First taste I think this is something between an ice cider and a good real cider. Oh, so nice. How could this not be an ice cider? It’s so refined. Overall good apple experience. Just plain good stuff. Refreshing compared to all those uncivilized american wannah bee ciders out there. Big thanks to the rateberian who brought this one. Yes, a simple reliable really good cider experience.
