Aromas of apples, pear, and hay. Clear, deep golden hue. A touch of sweetness, tart, flavors of golden apples, prickly pear, and white grapes. Full bodied, smooth, and has a tart lingering finish. Pretty good tasting cider, a little on the sweet side, but the tartness is fresh and pleasant.
Bottle at the RateBeer DC Cider tasting. Poured a clear golden color with a tiny white head. Light floral notes, sweetness in there. Light floral notes with a touch light funky tartness. GenDV138 (7470) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2016

bottle. Golden with small head. Aboverage cider with a solid balance of sweet and tart apple. Not terribly distinctive, but well done. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 5, 2016

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a light clear color with no head. Fresh green apples aroma. Very basic, standard apple cider for me. Drinks like there is no alcohol. Apple juice flavor throughout with a somewhat lingering tart flavor, which I can enjoy. I’ll drink this. For what it is, it’s good. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Had this bottle sitting in the fridge on deck for a while now, for some reason just never got to it. Finally poured it - clear gold. Aroma of Golden Delicious and Jonathans, although I am sure this wasn’t what was used. Big apple aroma though. Flavor is matching apple, some apple peel, and a slightly lingering residual sweetness. I would have preferred it a touch drier to my taste, but nicely done with good apple character shining through. crossovert (13413) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Wandering Aengus decided to put their name on cidres infinitely better than the anthem line, also expensive. This one is a sweeter one but definitely more dusty and rustic type notes. Ernest (7746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is notes of Apple Jacks cereal, lemon/lime zest, hint of minerals. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation.
Rather soda poppy / non-serious (aroma is a little artificial smelling), but not repulsive in any way. Decent acidity/balance, but mostly on the sweet side. nealblind (1940) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 19, 2014
Clear bright yellow. Aroma of applesauce. Tastes the same. Tastes like it’s been left outside/exposed. Was a gift that might’ve been overaged.
