Old Marauder combines attributes of McIntosh, Cortland, Ida Red and Jonagold apple varieties to create a hard cider that gives off crisp apple notes with a clean finish. Because it has no residual sugar, it complements a wide range of foods.
The apples selected for this blended hard cider have been widely available in Williamson and the surrounding Wayne County, N.Y., area for decades. Old Marauder represents the agricultural history of the town where Embark Craft Ciderworks is located and where the cider makers were raised. These apples have been part of the town’s collective pride and culture for generations.
MicroGrog (477) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle from WF Bowery. Rounded pint glass pour.
Clear, faint straw color.
Smells softly of pears, perfumey apple compote & veggies.
Taste is quite winey. White table wine with a fleshy apple edge. Tart, with bland yeasty notes getting a little in the way. Sparkly, sulfite headache loaded.
Quaf intended, but I just don't like it quite like that.
Draft at Bru Craft. Very clear, very pale gold pour. No head, though lots of bubbles. Mild fizzy cider. Hints of sour apple, Anjou pear, yellow plum. Not much to it but thankfully not too sweet. Nothing bad, but nothing great.
