Old gold color. Fruity aromas of apple liqueur, honey nut cereal, mixed fruits in jell-o, and caramel with a round, crisp, fizzy, sweet medium body and an effortless, carefree peaches in honey, captain crunch cereal, and lime glaze finish. A richly fruity cider that hits the senses with a swift kick.

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.
