Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
Pours a very clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is tartness with some apples. The flavor is tart apples and is pretty sweet. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation. There is nothing wrong with this cider.

Golden hue with a small fizzy head. The aroma is a tad earthy and funky, leafy with a bit of unfermented sugars and butterscotch along with the expected apple overtone. The taste is apple juice and sugar, a tad woody, fleshy, and earthy as well. The mouth feel is sticky and soft. If not for the sugars this would be nice, hardly a "dry cider" if you ask me.
Enjoyed at the Flossmoor Station RB tasting, 1/16/2010: This poured a golden yellow body with active carbonation and a few big bubbles on top. It had an aroma of aging apples stored in an old damp bushel basket. The flavor started off fairly sweet but developed a dry crispness near the finish. Tasty.

Dry darker gold. Aromas are a touch of horseblanket, stink, crisp apples, lightly sweet with a touch of funkiness. Decent body, sweet and dry in nice harmony. Frank (4258) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Clear apple juice color w/ a few bubbles of foam on top. Semi-sweet (even though it calls itself dry) and champagne-like. Slightly phenolic and funky. Good acidic balance /w some nice apple and floral notes. Definitely this was sweetened w/ a bit of apple juice but it still comes across as a reasonably good beverage.
