3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a clear pale yellow body with no head to speak of. Nose is vanilla, oak, butterscotch, yellow apples, hints of apple cores and green apple juice. Taste is dry wooden apple peel tones, apple cores, green apple juice, yellow apple peel and hints of vanilla and straw. Light body, medium carbonation. Pretty nice and smooth; dry yet not sour as some ciders tend ot be in this territory. Sort of Champagne-ish, in a way. Not bad, but not amazing either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
being a bit of a sucker for spanish ciders, i was looking forward to trying one all the way from nz.. clear pale yellow, small white head. Aroma of apple and oak, quite civilized, no obvious sourness or the like. however, there is a mild hint of horse blanket which suits the cider very well. Flavor is very dry, resembling the better english ciders, with notes of apple, quite a lot of wood, and lots of apple peel bitterness. in general the flavor is mild, and the cider appears rounded and mellow. Not entirely my favourite kind of cider, but certanly well done. resembles english cider.

75 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is somewhat acidic with white wine. Flavour has green apples, white wine, apple peel and acidic tones. Alcohol is well hidden. Too much white wine for my liking, could not locate the oak here. A disappointment.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear pale, with a fast fading head.
The aroma is funky, tart and lots of apples.
The taste is surprisingly light, and very vinous. Can replace a light white wine any day!
