Dull old gold color. Woody, roasted aromas and flavors of toasted oak barrel staves, pencil, honey roasted apples nd dnuts, and tea with a soft, shy, dry light-to-medium body and a medium finish that shows notes of citrus rind and brown apple core and saw dust finish. A heavily oaked cider for fans of the style.
