Clear golden yellow color. Fruity aromas and flavors of crusty apple tart, nougat, and apple vanilla candle with a silky, bright, effervescent, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, cheery finish with notes of caramel apple finish. A sweet fruity, pie like cider that will pair well with desserts.

Common Cider

Serve in a Pokal
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.
