COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Retired) RedStreak is a proper English style draft cider. With its hazy lemon hue, scent of ripe apples and just a touch of oak, RedStreak has a crisp, tart finish that pairs perfectly with your favorite mature cheddar. First discovered in Herefordshire in the 1630s, the Redstreak bittersharp apple produced a cider so delicious it was deemed to be fit for kings. Whether paired or on its own, RedStreak Cider is your next drink.

Draft at Dutchs. Pours a crystal clear light yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have apple cider notes, mild vinegar, tart apples, hints of a dry vinous character, some earthy notes with mild funk. Interesting, but Im not completely sold on cider and Perry ticks.

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft in a sampler at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours almost clear, with a piss-yellow gold hue and no head. The aroma is sweat and apples with some sugary sweetness. The flavor is crisp, tart, refreshing apples and not as sweet or sweaty as the nose. Light-bodied, with surprisingly high carbonation on the palate for not seeing any in the glass. So-so cider.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2013
On tap at Dutchs. Totally clear, slightly yellow color, no head or lace. Almost colorless. Very interesting apple aroma here... Oak, light funk, maybe a hint of smokey earthiness. Lightly tart taste, lighter sweet relative to other ciders, finishes more dry. Very light, crisp carbonation, more dry finish, and a very light body. Very easy to drink. This is actually chuggable, whereas most ciders are too sweet for that to be possible. Great stuff!

Pour on tap, clear golden pour with thin no head, aroma brought notes of big green apple, apple skins, some lemon, touch of yeasty notes with a slight oak. Taste was a mix of oak, lemon, some slight vanilla into tart apple skins, apple flesh, finishing slightly tart, slightly dry.

b3shine (8671) - Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent light gold with no real lacing and very soft carbonation. Smells and tastes of tart apples and mild vinegar with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but not my favorite example of the style.

TheAlum (7135) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
Draft on tap at Goose Clybourn (Chicago, IL). Welcome Greg Hall to the fold again, folks. Pours a pale straw hue, champagne hued with just a touch of haze. Some gentle carbonation with a brighter white head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are crisp and bright apples, sweet and touches of tartness. Gentle funk, yeast, and gentle crisp straw. Rich apple, touches of fruit sugars. Initial is a touch fizzy, dry and prickly front offers some cotton, gentle apple, champagne yeast. Dry and effervescent with touches of apples, fruit sugar, red apples wit some mellow dryness, gentle funk and touches of spice. Dry and champagne based, lovely dryness with some gentle sweetness. Very champagne influenced, dry with gentle sweetness, light carbonation though. Quite striking. Lovely rich dryness, with mellow sweetness making its jabs. Red apple, a faint tartness into the backend and finish. Quality local fresh cider here that wins over someone that does indeed enjoy Champagne.
