Clear golden pour, vibrant nose of wine tannins and apple brandy. Perfect carbonation level, first sip is appley but not overly so. Finishes dry with a touch of vanilla. Extremely drinkable, surprisingly so for something packaged so finely in a spiffy 750ml. Robust boozy apple is present, which may limit drinkability for the cider noob. This, however, is a cider nerd’s session beverage. Highly recommended especially for its attention to detail and concise delivery.
Draught at Capitol Cider, Seattlemaxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Blond color. Light apple and glue aroma. Very dry mouthfeel; not much flavor.
Draught. Pours a clear golden color with no head on it at all. Nose is sweet and rather apply, and reminds me a lot of apple juice. Taste, on the other hand, is actually quite dry and not at all sweet. Feel is very bubbly, and reminds me of sparkling apple cider. Fairly little apple in the taste, methinks.
