3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp golden and light copper coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of pure apples, sugar and a very light yeast note. Light-bodied; Strong apple flavour with a strong sweetness and a pungent yeast and light malt note - very nice and refreshing, actually. Aftertaste shows a nice sweetness and that definite and very strong apple flavour - just like a good cider from America or Britain. Overall, a very nice cider considering the options and well worth having if you like ciders at all, since it will be refreshing on a hot day here in Bali! I sampled this 32 cL bottle purchased from Circle K (not horribly hard to find, but not very easy) in Kerobokan, Bali, Indonesia a few hours ago for IDR37,500, easily one of the more expensive drinks from a convenience store, sampled a little later in my villa next door here in Bali on 27-June-2014.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Molly Malones, Senayan, Jakarta. Clear pale golden. Citric apple aroma. Semi sweet with soem citric aciditiy. Clean and spritzy with green apples and notes of apple skin. Nothing too fancy, but a clean tasting, relatively refreshing proper cider - much better than any local beer I’ve managed to get hold of in Jakarta.
