2015 BJCP Category: C1A New World Cider

AROMA: Light aroma of mostly green/golden apples. Slight tartness. No acidity. Mild nose overall. 6/12

APPEARANCE: Pale gold hue; crystal clear with consistent CO2 visible. White foam immediately dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Medium to semi-sweet palette, no superfluous sugary presence. Flavor is mostly red apple with distinct green apple tartness on the finish. Faint acidity in the aftertaste, but it does not linger. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation (not as crisp as it looks). Refreshing with a fairly clean aftertaste. Light tannins. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty standard, no-frills cider. It’d be better either bone dry or richly sweet. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 33/50
