This one faired a bit better then the previous cider I had from these guys, but not by much. Oak on the nose is followed by some oakiness trying to meld with the apples that were way too tarrt. mar (5408) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Gold pour with a white head. Nose is tart apples, wood, vanilla, and not much else. Easy on the palate, very tart, very dry, fresh apple, and a smooth finish. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2012
(500ml bottle) bright gold, light glass coating and bubbles that fade fast like a soda. Nose of tart apples, light oak, a mild bit of funk, sugar and very tiny bit of alcohol. Taste is dry and tart, Oaky, refreshing, lightly lemony, very well carbonated. Could drink this out at the pool.

Pours pale golden with no head. Aroma is tart apples and oak. Taste is very dry tart apples with hints of oak. I’m not usually huge on ciders, but this one is quite nice. There is very little sweetness and the oak adds a pleasant complexity and mouthfeel. Pretty good. jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
clear pale yellow with no head, no lacing... lightly appley, not too much going on, dry... dry palate meidum to medium thin body, decent MicroGrog (367) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2011
$8.25 at New Beer. Pretty label would of at least gotten me to second base regardless. ;) July 2010 bottling.
Ommegang Anniversary glass. Brief flash of whitewashed head. Constant stream of activity. Clear, pale amber body.
Smell of buttery English cider apples, leather, & crab apples(&... fresh beets?). Bit of sweetener. Somewhat briny. Dab of oaky vanilla. Very standard for an import, except, this is not an import, unless Oregon doesn’t really sync with your traditionalist views these days. /shrug.
Taste is very tart & tangy up front, leading into grassy. Very reminiscent of the better English imports we get here. Coarse woody/minerally tannins peak casually in the middle of every other sip. More bitter then bittersweet. A winey bitter. Preservatives walking in broad daylight. Finish lingers with some tart, eventually falling into a dry, subtly yeasty exit.
Crisp, with seemingly intentional astringency. Pretty dry. Noticeable alcohol. Missing some texture.
Solid English clone with some added tart. Splicing in a low dose of a single sweeter/milder varietal could of rounded it off more to my liking, but as is, it does a better job with food. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 19, 2011
July 2010 bottling. Clear golden color. Mild bandaid, sulfer, yellow apple, butter, wood aromas. Light bodied. Dry oak, dry apple flavors; mildly tart, bittersweet finish. Not impressed. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear apple juice like body very light golden body with a trickle of quickly diminishing white fizz leaving short streams of bubbles only. Aromatically cider, pears, and light oak tones. A bit sweet and fruity. Waxy sweetness with a quickly drying slightly tart and again waxy in finish. White wine notes, a bit drying like champagne and a hint of sour apples.
