    Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Strong aroma is mostly fresh apple. Flavor is strong and tasty, all fresh apple - were the apples picked yesterday? Hell, it is listed as organic. Mouthfeel has OK body and fizz. Don’t worry, drink Scrumpy!

    Upon opening a sour apple blast hits the nose, but immediately fades to a light twang in the background/ Lightly sweet, dry and solid across the board. Was hoping to challenge the barreled ciders, which it did not, but it was nice. Top 5 in style.

    It pours a light and hazy golden with an apple cider appearance. There is no head real head and some spots of lacing. An aroma of caramel apples, bready malts, oranges and citrus, bread and yeast, and spiciness. The mouthfeel is thin and watery. Flavors of tart apples, caramel malts, bread and yeast, citrus fruits, and mild spices. Tasty!

    Poured a light-hazy honey colored. The aroma is a slightly sour apple skin. There is Just the right degree of carbonation. A full bodied and smooth brew. I got the sweetness and the tartness of apples hitting the palate in a nice balance. This cider is a perfect complement to a barbecue of bold meats on a hot lazy August evening.

    Pours and looks just like very fresh apple juice. There is nothing complicated or complex about this product. It is a fun drink that when enough is consumed will knock your socks off. It is lightly carbonated so you know that there is fermentation, that is the only real hint. Great, easy drink.

    Aroma is very sweet with nuiances of sourness as well as tartness with some fresh apple aromas coming through as well as slight "off" flavors that add character. Appearance is a deep, golden in color with some haziness with only a very minute, bubbly head on top that is rather uncarbonated. Mouthfeel is dry-like with sweet complexity as well as tart balance with some wet-like overtones. Flavor is of fermented apples and tartness with an aftertaste that is sour-like with a sweet finish as well as refreshing. Overall, a nice product here and much better than your run-on-the-mill variaties such as Woodpecker and Woodhuck; recommended brew here and very reminiscient of hard, English variaties and such.

    Poured a golden tan with light noticible carbonation. The aroma was of apples with just a hint that the cider had "worked" The flavor was sweet with just enough carbonation to tickle your tongue. The best part was that there was no vinagery bitterness that you often experience with other ciders. This was most pleasing to drink. It went wonderfully with turkey, It could easily be paired with a variety of foods. A first rate cider.
