Bottle from Matkroken Landås, Bergen. Pours a light pale, white-ish body with few bubbles. Nose is green and yellow apples, wood, sawdust and hints of champagne yeast. Taste is yellow apples, ripe apple peel, heather honey and hints of wood and sulfur and straw. Light body, medium carbonation. Very refreshing while retaining a considerable complexity. I like it.

Light to medium sweet flavor, some welcome dryness, hints of basement. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Nicely dry to finish, some mellow ripe apple sugars, subtle hints of dankness. A cheerful little cider.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light green in colour with evident carbonation but no head. Aromas of dry juicy apple and a good noseful of crusty, bready yeast. The flavour was the same with the emphasis on apple skins. Not sweet, not raspingly dry or sour. Nicely balanced and tasty.
