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.

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...

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sam Adam’s cider called "dry" is clear metallic yellow with no head. Its oaky and has a decent apple flavor without being too sweet. It does finish on the dry side of wet, bit still a little damp.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.355 l bottle from Alko. Golden color. Refreshing apple and pear aroma, even acidity and sweetness. Sweetish and firmly acidic taste with low to medium tannins. Fresh apple flavor with hints of pear and grapefruit. Medium body. Good bright apple flavor and balanced taste, some riesling wine like notes also. Differs nicely from typical English or French ciders.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had to compensate for the lack of appearance in the overall points. Light golden colour no head. Light apple aroma. Taste was light sourness medium dryness , light sweetness. Very balanced as a refreshing sauna cider with taste.
