MicroGrog (477) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2017
5% abv 6-pack version from New Beer Distros.
Tulip glass pour. Clear, golden, active.
Smell is sweet & medicinal. A boquet rubbing alcohol & what might be best described as lawn mulch. Strange smell indeed.
Taste is grassy & chemically upfront, a soft Mott’s sweetness in the middle, with a saline & battery-laced hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth body, strong carbonation, but the mix of chemically flavors & scents are definitely getting me queasy... Iznogud (5072) - CROATIA - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle, 355 ml from Park Plaza Liquor & Deli, Prescott. Pours cloudy golden, no head. Apple, some light hops, pine, nice tartness, dry, very light bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. j12601 (13610) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear gold with a medium sized white head. Sweet citrus over crisp apple. Medium bodied, sweet up front, but dries out quickly and gains some softness along with a hint of pine and orange. Hops are noticeable, but not distracting. Decent enough. jandd1983 (4752) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle. It poured a hazy light golden color with a white head. The aroma was of tart floral apples. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tart apples and a nice tart finish of moderate duration. Not bad. OnTheTrail (647) - Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2016
5% version. Pours clear light gold, slight head. Aroma is candied apple, barest hint of flowery hops. Taste is much more tangy, some noticeable bitterness, though no clear hops flavors, doesn’t hang together all that well.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. Has a nice clear color with an excellent aroma and cider flavor. Block (3288) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2016
I wouldn’t say this is a more hopped cider - it just doesn’t come through for me. Mostly the same apple in the aroma and flavor, some tartness. Not too different from their others. obguthr (7008) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Mint, grass, apple, and airplane glue nose. Clear pale yellow. Flavor is more dominated by apple with mint on the edges. Artificial greenapple candy flavor initially with more natural and drier (but still sweet) apple notes afterward. Light body, highly carbonated. ThreeCats (1027) - ISRAEL - JAN 5, 2016
5% version. Greenish-yellow color with good fizz and just a bit of a head. Aroma of sour apple candy and alcohol. Taste dry and crisp, with some veggie notes and a bit of bitterness. Not very sweet, but kinda full. FlandersNed (396) - , Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2015
12oz bottle. Hazy pale yellow tone and quick, fizzy white bubbles. Sweet/green apples, grassy/citrus hops, dry white pine needles & a hint of spearmint stem. Moderate body and medium+ carbonation.
