Guest tap at Southern Appalachian Brewing. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Tart grainy apples with earthy notes. The taste is sweet apples, some graininess and pear. Medium bodied. Decent.

Brought this cider back from NC. Split with girlfriend. Poured a clear yellow color with a fizzy, disipating head. Aroma is apples. White wine dominates this cider, very much like a white. Okay, perhaps lacking a bit compexity, but perfect as a regular very dry cider.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a clear golden body with some fizz. Aroma of alcohol, dryness, and decently fruit forward. Taste is dry, sparkling and nice. Slightly acidic. Quite drinkable, but lacks a bit in complexity.

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear pale yellow with nice lasting film of bubbles. Nose of funky apple cider, dusty, somewhat old (if old is a smell). Taste of sugar, apple skins, with a thin to medium body. Alcoholic finish.
