snoworsummer (5464) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Draft in Julian. Pours a very pale clear color with almost no head. Tastes light and dry, faint apple, hardly any sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Faint aroma of baking apples.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of apple, cinnamon and sweet water. Tastes of green and red apple and cinnamon water. No real aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. A pretty basic cider, pre the days when we had access to new cideries and English and Spanish imports.

"Really liked the tart and lively Cherry Bomb version of this, buth this one was lacking, relatively speaking. Average at best, it had a pleasant apple crispness, but no depth or uniquness to speak of."

Alright, in an effort to appease my cider cohorts, I shall say something about this. The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange to yellow color with a fast rising carbonation escaping towards the dieing head. Wait a minute, what head, as its bubbly and quickly dieing. The smell had a light sweet apple with a fairly decent sweet hay to honey weirdness (sorry, theres something different than most ciders Ive had that allows something different in this one). The taste was mainly sweet but still had a light weird hay - like / maybe grassy sweetish sort of sugary - ness going on. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly sharp carbonation running about it. Sessionable, hmmmm...not really. Overall, decent for a cider, nice to try but nothing to really go back to.

On tap. Pale, pale golden with some bubbles that cling to the glass. Nose is tart green apple with a touch of sweetness. Tastes the same, with some pithy wooden notes on the finish. Light body is tingly with medium-high carbonation and has a nice balance.

Pours the palest of gold. This cider is fairly tart, a tad watery and had flavors of green and yellow apples.

Pour a light straw yellow with a small fizzy whit head which quickly fades to no lacing. Aroma is of apple juice, viniger, sour apples, apple skin, and. A touch of cinnamon. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a light body with a watery mouthfeel and a dry, semi sour, medium-short finish. Overall, a somewhat deccent cider.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Appearance: Pours very disturbingly clear almost looks like water in my glass. Fizzy and spritzy with a steady stream of bubbles that form a bubbly white collar.
Nose: Fizzy almost like seltzer water. Apple seltzer water. Very mild and unassuming.
Palate: Watery and nondescript. Very watery apple juice. Hint of bitter apple skins in the back followed by a hard salty bite that is not enjoyable.
Final Thoughts: After sampling enough to take my notes, the rest of my glass and the bottle went down the drain. Watery, nondescript, and easily forgettable. There are far better ciders out there.
