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.

tap at Dash In - Thsi cider smells of green apples. Its light and mildly sweet, a definite tart character, and a dry finish. Its well done and for me was more of a slow drinker than the typical draft cider.

Draft at goose clybourn, pours very clear with a very pale straw color and no head. Aroma is bursting with fresh apples, touch oaky vanilla, vinho verdi like. Flavors is huge with fresh apples, nice apple crisp zingy tart character, oaky white wine character, earthy finish, long spritzy clean champagne esque finish. A lot like apple vinho verdi. Holy crap this is good.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Sampler @ the GI Clyborn location. The color is pale straw. Aroma is drying, slightly acidic, and fruity apples. Well balanced not sweet and very well done for an English style. Flavor is fruit forward than good dryness and mineral apple without the sweet. I really enjoyed this cider.

Draft at GI clybourn. Pours an attractive pale gold with a nice mousse on top that fades reasonably quickly. Good flow of bubble. Nose starts with some light sulfur and a distinct fruity quality. Musty cellar and tartness in the nose, then sweetness and an almost savory note. The sulfur fades fast leaving a great floral apple blossom note. Really great. Medium prickly carbonation, light body. A bit more body would be fantastic. Good balance of sweetness and acidity. Great floral quality on taste witha persistent ripe apple character. Medium tartness and great fruit flavor. Pretty fantastic cider here.

This is one of the best ciders Ive ever had. Generally not a huge cider guy but the complexity of the flavor is fantastic. The apples are prominant and juicy with notes of citrus, light funk, oak, and a dry finish that makes you really want to keep drinking it. Great cider.

Tulip pour at village tap... Crystal clear transparent gold pour, somewhat lively with some bubble action going on. Non-existent head... Aroma of semi-tart red apple meat and skin. Clean, dry, and crisp... Flavors are more of the same semi-tart refreshing red apple, lightly sweet. Not that oaky. To sound like a broken record, crisp clean refreshing and really drinkable. Light on the palate. Dry finish.

On tap at Revolution. Pours a crystal clear, pale yellow colored body with no head. Aroma is crisp and lightly tart apples with a touch of sweetness. A hint of oak and champagne. Flavor is similar. Clean and crisp apples with a light sweetness and tartness. A touch of oak again before this finishes dry and lightly tart with a hint of sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a clean, crisp, light body and a champagne-ish carbonation. Overall, a really solid cider. Very fresh apples with a light tartness and touch of sweetness. Extremely easy to drink with a pleasant dryness. Pretty impressed.

On tap at Craftsman - Yellow pour with next to no head. Nose is white grape, dry apple, a little leather, and no spicing. Same taste--dry and clean with lots of white grape. Very crisp. Thinnish with ample carbonation.

Pale yellow with fizzy head. Tart apples, fresh, light wood notes, sweet sugars. Very carbonated. Lightly dry but refreshing. Nice from top to bottom.
