The color is very light golden yellow with a faint carbonation, so gaunt it's almost not there (not that I think there should be more). The apples are semi-sweet, kind of like a mix of golden delicious and Granny Smith. I don't see this becoming one of my favorite hard ciders (not at $10 for a 1 pint 6 oz bottle), but I would definitely drink this again, and I will definitely try the other offerings from Square Mile Cider.
The more I drink it, the dryer it seems. I think it's a property of the temperature release aroma and flavor from the hops.
My score: 7.5 out of 10
