olio (7542) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2012
50 cl bottle. BBE 02/2014.
Pours clody pale golden color with small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of sweetish ripe apples, grass, some wood, wet leaves and mild pear notes. Flavor of mildly sweet apples, hay, wood, hints of grapes and earth. High carbonation, dry palate with a fruity lingering finish. Nice.

EdKing (2139) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Draft in The Harp. Very clear and pale yellow. Surpised how pale this is. Nose is sweet apples, slightly floral. Taste is nice blend of sweetness with sharp apple sour. Good standard cider.

YAFB (18) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2012
A full bodied cider with a punch. Dried apple and hints of blueberry and candy floss, itís got just the right amount of acid and a very clean finish. 7% alcohol on the Australian import.

gunnfryd (12423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle. Yellow colour with no head. Aroma is sulphur, yeast, hint of apple. Flavour is sulphur, yeast, apple. Medium to thin body. Boring cider.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Nose is a bit sharp and astringent. Pours straw yellow. Flavour is pleasant enough but that underpinning sharpness remains, and if anything this cider suffers from a marked lack of any distinction.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2012
0.375l bottle. Nice bottle on this one. It pours a crystal clear green-yellow body with no head what so ever. Light sweet in the aroma with lots of cider-apples, white wine, grapes and sugar. It has a fizzing oily texture and itís what I would call average carbonated. Fortunately not as sweet in the flavor. Yes, some sweetness here, but thatís all coming from the apples. Yeah, itís quite apply actually, and it has a really nice light acidic tone as well as a thin hint of alcohol near the finish. Dry mouthing finish and aftertaste. This was quite a nice one. 25.02.2012

ClubGonzo (4726) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale, near-green yellow body with no head to speak of (as usual with cider). Aroma is mineral salts, light sulfuric tones, wood, yeast and yellow apples. Taste is weird and sulfuric, with wood and astringent sawdust-like bitterness in between rotting vegetables and accentuated yeasty tones. Parching mouthfeel and surprisingly watery mouthfeel despite the high ABV - itís just too dry, I reckon. Not a good one. Judging by the low Norwegian ratings on this one, the entire batch shipped to Norway might have been bad. At least, I hope so for the sake of the producers...

Beer5000 (5062) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pale golden body almost without any head at all. Aroma is mostly sulfide and yeast. Flavor is mild and acidic apple with some off flavors. Not much apples here and the rest is not particular pleasant either.
