An odd bitter sterile aroma. Golden in color with no head. Starts apple sweet and drys out immediately becoming crab apple bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Sweet acidic apple. Clear gold. Lots of non sweet apple and dry. No alcohol or sweetness. Not bad, but not as complex as I would think with the crab apple.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Alibi Room in Gastown. Very sour and astringent. Better than most ciders I’ve tried, but not likely to make cider my favorite category anytime soon.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Golden color, with basically no head. Nice apple aroma, dry, a bit flowery, very light vinegar. The mouthfeel is very dry; it has a strong acidity, unfortunately with acetone as well; the final is very dry, and expectedly astringent.
I like ciders full of tannins, but acetone and astringency don’t work out well, and the acidity is a bit too high.
