Brilliant yellow straw color. Bright, peppery, musty fruity floral aromas of spiced apples and nuts, pork rinds, and lemongrass with an even, vibrant, spritzy, sweet light-to-medium body and an effortless, breezy reduced lemon and pineapple, apple skins, wet straw and wood, and vanilla milk finish. A tangy, mouthwatering cider with a good balance of sweet and sour notes.

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.
