Brilliant straw green color. Curious aromas of buttered flax bread, cream of wheat with raisins, and honeyed apple slices with a supple, crisp, effervescent, off-dry medium body and a smooth, charming, medium-length spiced apples, fruit salad, pineapple soda, and limesicle and powder finish. A light and breezy, easy drinking cider with a grainy edge.

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.
