Brilliant golden yellow color. Earthy aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, ferns and leaves, and apple yogurt with a bright, effervescent, fruity medium body and an effortless, breezy finish that exhibits notes of caramelized apples, clementine and melon, and ground nuts finish. A tangy cider quaffer.

Common Cider

Common ciders range in alcohol from 4-8% and typically feature dominant apple aromas and flavors. Most are not dry, but also not cloying, with a sweet, medium body and acidity. This style is what the majority of consumers associate with hard cider. The descriptor 'common' is in reference to the types of apples used to produce these ciders, rather than in reference to its quality of ready availability. Common ciders are produced from culinary table apples, typically including varietals such as Golden Delicious, Jonathan and Macintosh to name a few.
