1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma: (3- notably flawed) Smelled basically like an apple Jolly Rancher, overly sweet and candy-like.
Appearance: (3- average) Looked like a basic cider; still gold with a small ring of white head that was quickly gone.
Flavor: (4- below average) Matches the nose; maybe a little less sweet, but still pre-teen girly swill.
Palate: (2- below average) light body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, abrupt finish.
Overall: 83% folks? Really? Yuck. Thanks to my wife for letting me try this?

Meh. Maybe I'm just not a fan of the genre. Maybe I don't like a flat drink with no head. Maybe I like a beer that's a beer and not candy masquerading as alcohol. Or maybe it's just not very good.

Clear pee-like color with no head.
Nice apple nose, with some cinnamon and spice.
Sweet with a slight tartness, apple juice with a touch of wood.
A bit cloying but OK.

On tap. It pours a clear, golden body, still. Apples dominates the aroma completely, with some fruitysweetish notes. Quite sweet in the flavor too, at least it’s a bit sweeter than what I’d prefer. Medium body, semi-dry. Apple finish. Overall, certainly much better than the industrial crap available in Norwegian stores, but I’m still not impressed, it’s too one-dimensional. Well, wouldn’t shy away from repeating it though. 130630

Peetty good cider. A bit strong on the sour side though. I could use a bit more apple taste though.

Pours a clear,golden yellow with no head. Very little carbonation. It smells and tastes like apples. A little too sweet, but still enjoyable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks avrashi. Clear pale golden. Aroma is somewhat sulphury with green apples. Sweetish and slightly tart apples flavor. Medium-bodied. Simple, but quite refreshing.
