Brilliant old gold color. Fruity, spicy, yeasty aromas and flavors of apple-banana keffir and buttermilk frosting on apple crumble with a silky, tangy, finely carbonated, off-dry medium body and a sleek, medium-length apple and watermelon sorbets and gel candies, almond cookie, nutskin, and apple vinaigrette finish. A nice, fruity, off-dry cider that will please the masses.

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.
