Clear brilliant pale silver color. Mild, waxy aromas of candle, waxy apples, apple ice, and melon in a bag with an even, lively, effervescent, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a polished, quick green apple skin, minerals, and apple cider vinaigrette finish. A rustic, funky cider with nice table appeal.

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.
