1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
A sugary, apple aroma on the nose ending with a tart note. The appearance is apple juice gold with minimal carbonation. Essentially still. The flavor is like watery apple juice with a green apple tartness on the end. It also has some white wine ester character. High acidity. The mouthfeel is watery with a little tannin noticeable on the end. Sugar coats my mouth on the finish. Overall, it's a poor quality cider that lacks the profile of bittersweet and bittersharp apples that are found in good examples. It is also too sweet to be called a dry cider. The green apple flavor is a fermentation flaw.

Bottle at home. Clear light golden color, some white bubbles. Aroma is dry apple and some other fruits. Rich apple taste, sour notes, little sour and dry finish. Not bad at all.

0.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Another headless yellow drink with the aroma of apples. Taste is very sour. Tastes like green apples but with an entense sourness that just makes it awful. Got two more bottles of this in the fridge. Will have to find a dish I can make using them because I am sure not going to drink them.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poors a nice gold color. Smells of apples. Retty dry in taste, apple flavor doesn’t last too long.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brief write-up. Pours a straw color. Aroma is little more than faint apple; nothing intrinsically bad, however. The first couple of sips have a pleasant tartness to them, but soon gives way to apple sweetness. It’s finish is only dry compared to, say, their Crisp Apple. Read: it’s not very dry at all. Like many Angry Orchard ciders, I would drink this over BMC - but not over Boston Lager.

From a bottle. Smooth apple aroma. A little waxy on the tongue. Tangy at first. Sour apple and dry.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled (from Alko Keskusta, Vaasa). Yellow colour, not too much head. Aroma is basically just apples with some slight earthy notes. Flavour is sweet apple with a bit drier palate than normal "swillcider", but still very far from what I would call even remotely dry...
