3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of apples, flowers, and bread yeast. Appearance is slightly hazy with a pale, greenish tint. Dry, tart, and savory. Medium body, average carbonation, and finishes dry and tart.
Super pale barely golden tinted body with absolutely no head at all - this literally looks like white grape juice or a glass of any steel-based white wine. Aroma of pale apples, a bit of grass, some subdued dryness and a hint of sugars - nice, but mild. Light-bodied; Strong pale apple flavour that shows some nice sweetness, a bit of hay and earth and ends with a faint bit of alcohol and a lot of very dry grassy and appley flavours. Aftertaste is mild and subdued with the apples, alcohol and mild grass only noticeable. No real complexity and no deep flavours at all - this is nice, but predictable. Overall, a nice, grassy and very dry cider with some good sweetness, a lot of appley taste and little else, be that good or bad! I sampled this sixteen ounce pint on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington) at the end of my driveway on 24-October-2016 for US$4,00.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2016 2 oz pour on draft at ANXO. Clear whitish yellow. Aromas of white wine, champagne, light apple. Tastes of apples, champagne. Light body with a very dry finish. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2015
On tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont. Nice golden yellow with slight head. Nose is apples and sweet. Taste is apples, tart and wine notes. Nice and sweet with syrupy texture. Good one. lamas (1661) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2015
750mL corked & caged bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with the slightest skim of a white head. The tart aroma features some green apples, peaches, apricots, lemons, orange rinds, vinous notes, and some cheesy funk. Goes down thin, crisp & quite effervescent. The taste features lots of tart green apples, pears, peaches, lemons, and Pinot grigio-like vinous notes. Funky here and there. Rather dry throughout. Forgettable.

Draft at beer run. Pours yellow and cloudy with a thin white head. Solid Apple notes on the nose. As the name indicates it's on the dry side. Finished clean and hides it's booze well which makes this really dangerous in a good but dangerous way.

Tap at Beer Run Charlottesville- pours cloudy pale yellow, still. The green apple tartness is balanced by the hoppy bitterness that adds some nice lemongrass notes. Very nice! BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Tap at The Beer Joint. Pours lightly hazy pale gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet honey and apples with light nutmeg notes. Flavor is crisp apples, lightly tart and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Maverick34 (3389) - New York, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Big bottle. Pale gold not much carb. Sour and tart, very dry finish. Nothing special. nimbleprop (8922) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Sampled at Fireworks Arlington. Pours a clear, limey gold with zero head. Nose is fairly mild, muddle apples, green apple skins, mild honey. Not a whole lot happening in the aroma. Flavor shines more, crisp green apple, some mild earthy crab apple too, honey, a little dried fruit lurking - like dried cherry or raisin, some pear notes too. Crisp finish.

From the tap poured a very pale brew with not much head. Very dry flavor. Aromas of dry apples. I liked this even though I usually like sweeter ciders.
