Cider Description

Color - Pale yellow, mostly clear.

Nose - Apple and must.

Flavor - Light to medium body.  Medium to slightly high acidity.  A hint of something funky  - perhaps something wasn't perfectly clean and happy during the fermentation (we don't claim to be perfect).  Little to no noticeable tannins.

Overall Impression - Probably could have been better (blame the cider maker).  Even so, it was a little thin.  Could be used to add some acidity to a blend.
