The Original is a classic American hard cider. Its made from three apple varieties rooted in American cultureRed Delicious, Yellow Delicious, and Johnny Goldpicked and pressed by hand in Oregon. A lager beer yeast was chosen to create a cider that perfectly balances sweet and tart with a light, crisp apple flavor and a clean, refreshing finish. The Original is best served over ice to complement the crisp apple flavor and clean, refreshing finish.

This is a nice summertime cider. It does seem like it was over filtered. Enjoyed by 6 of us.

Bottle from Fred Meyer. Light golden in color. Looks to have very low carbonation. Nose is very light, but seems to have a hint of apple. Sweet, light apple flavor up front. Not a whole lot going on. Pretty average cider.

Stuedmaster (351) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from BevMo in Escondido. Aroma of tart apples, nice deep gold pour. I found this to be very clean, refreshing and well balanced, one of the better ciders that I have had. Has a crisp, slightly carbonated, dry mouthfeel. Recommended.

Reid (2481) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2015
22 oz bottlle purchased from Roths Vista Market in Salem $3.79 Very pale yellow colour with no head and no lace. Aromas of semi-sweet apples and maybe a little leaf/earth. Simple semi-sweet ..maybe Fuli or Pink lady apples..thats about it. Palate is fine for style sweet ending. Another clean boring US cider.

On tap at Hangar on the wharf. I had a little water to clean my palate of the previous beers. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a pure clear yellow color with a big transparency to it. Light streams of bubbles arise. There was barely any head (but its a cider, no worries). The smell was a slight tart to sweet Granny Smith apple with a slight nice grassy bitter lemon coming through as it warmed. The taste was mainly sweet with a nice thorough tart and yet mildly acceptable sour lemon to balance the apple. Theres a slight vinous aftertaste with a mild dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a proper carbonation for a cider = harsh but not overbearing. Overall, a cider I could do again...hmm, maybe.
