Downeast Cider House
Downeast Cider House Original Blend (5.1% alcohol by volume) is made from freshly pressed apple cider, malic acid and sulfites. A mild aroma of apples, traces of floral and spice, and a hint of bacon and funk rise from the glass. It pours cloudy gold and is moderately effervescent. It tastes and feels more effervescent than it looks featuring semi-dry mild apple flavors with some green apples and a hint of smoky bacon. The tartness is at green apple levels. Mild tannins produce some astringent notes that help dry the finish. This is a refreshing, very drinkable cider. I rate it 78.
