Fresh from tap at Merridale. Clear yellow green. Acidic, slightly vinegary nose. Sparkly and light on the palate. Straw after a rich flowery, grassy and light wooden note, nice balance of acid to sweetness. Wonderful drink.

Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours a still clear yellow. Aroma of dry apples with a slight hints of tartness, no sugar. Flavour is pure green apples with a nice dry mouthfeel and only a hint of sweetness. Really well-balanced. Great cider.

Pale golden colour with fizzy carbonation. Sour apple aroma, with faint barnyard and horseblanket aromas. Crystal clear. Flavour is slightly sweet but still quite tart. Very different and much better than macro ciders that I’ve had.

1 L bottle courtesy Capflu. Pale straw yellow colour, very low carbonation – almost still. Pleasant green apple and slight cinnamon aroma. Sweet apple, light honey and spice flavours. A similar spicy heat in the finish to Merridale’s Cyser – perhaps their house character? Light to medium bodied, sticky, quite fizzy mouthfeel despite its still appearance, but refreshing. A step up from average, though the sweetness might not be for everyone.

Bottle - Yellow apple and some honey notes. Clear light gold. Light funk and yellow apple flesh. Touch of funk and not too sweet.

(Draught) I was amazed to see that they sell these ciders in clear plastic bottles - I wonder what that does to their aging? The House is sold in a 2 litre plastic which makes you wonder if you are expected to break-out this 6.9% momma at the family picnic? I cannot image that the remainder wouldn’t go flat within a normal consumption period of this cider. In sampling this cider, I noticed that it was mildly sedimented in its clear golden body. There was actually a thin white head as well. The nose was slightly iodine and thin which translated into a watery, general consumption cider. Average.

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2011
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 6.9% ABV
Pale blond color; no head. Mild aroma of apple juice. The cider itself is not bad, with some apple fruitiness, dry but with light residual sweetness, with a refreshing sourness; unfortunately it also has a weird impression of baby care cream...

Gerbeer (3754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap. Pours a light straw color with no head and medium carbonation. Aromas of freshly cut apples - not much though. Flavor likewise with grass up front then apples and light spice.
