Taster at McLadden’s Northampton. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Nice Apple on the nose. Dry on the tongue with lovely apple flavor. Finished with a hint of tartness. It’s pretty good cider.

Poured a dense hazy yellow looking like grapefruit juice, I will admit I missed the instructions to shake profusely......aroma of apple skin, sweet/sour pineapple.......taste is not quite dry, a hint of sweetness and fair body with several apple notes and just a touch of apple skin. Quite a nice offering.

On tap @ Blind Tiger. Almost looks like an tropical juice this. Really cloudy, almost murky and only a thin filmy sidesticking little thing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is really lovely tropical, apply and sweet. Lots of mango traces, red sweet apples, yellow apples and something herbal. Rosemary perhaps? Some raisins also here. A really nice aroma on this. It’s almost carbonation free this, only a few prickling bubbles on the tongue and it has a nice oily texture in the mouth. This is how a semi sweet cider should taste. Really tropical apply. Sweetish without being too much or sugary. A really nice refreshing summery cider. 09.06.2015

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Sampled on draft this cider poured a murky apricot color with a small soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was fairly sweet apple juice. The flavor was tart apple and apple juice. Medium length tart apple finish. Medium body. Solid.

I like this one, good apple flavor, and I like the unfiltered cloudiness. It could be a bit more tart though.

Love this cider how it’s fresh pressed and unfiltered like real cider. Well balanced and full bodied.

Can shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man! Hazy caution light yellow body with noticeable tiny sediment flecks. Aromas of...well...apple cider. Lovely varieties of a set and tart apples, favoring the s wet side. Easy drinking, thirst quenching. Sweet and juicy with a tangy finish. Tasty.

My last drink was the cranberry version of this and it was better due to the acidity--just in case anyone is choosing between the two. This is a yeasty looking and smelling cider. It has a pretty nice apple character and acidic bite once you get beneath the yeast but that is kind of a tall order. It has a decent juicy texture and fairly low carbonation. These guys seem to wear the craft distinction on their arm and as such they seem to want to include enough yeast for a loaf of bread in each can. Were they to maybe filter this a bit, I could see it being much better.
