Appearance - Light gold with a hint of pink/red. Mild haze. Moderate color intensity and brilliance.
Nose - Ripe fruit aroma. Subtle but pleasant.
Taste - Initial burst of flavor and gushing, juicy mouthfeel that fades to a lingering astringency. Moderate acidity and notable "bite" of alcohol. The astringent finish suggests more tannins than testing revealed.
Overall Impression - Good, full flavored cider with nice balance of acids. It stands up fairly well on its own or could be used to add some oomph to a weaker cider.
