Block (2073) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2016
A dryer cider. Not too great. Some apple and some alcohol. Not sweet, which is good, but the flavor was a little off.

sudomorph (1009) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
Pours a clear, slightly peach colour. Aroma has slightly tart notes of apple. Taste is slightly sweet and a hint tart with notes of red apple and a bit of sugar. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Lively mouth feel with a mildly syrupy texture. Overall pretty tasty. I can see why it is popular.

Padchenko (221) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 1, 2016
Pours orange with no head. Inviting aroma but far too sweet - but I guess that’s why I’m not a cider fan... Medium carbonation. I’ll steer clear in future

Vighals (2648) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2016
Lys brun klar med flyktig fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter epler, men det er noe humlepreg blandet inni der. Noe lambic luktet også. Lett. Fruktig, lite sødme og bitterhet. Tørr.

Bamsen78 (4779) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear salmon orange with quickly disappearing light pinkish white head. Clear aroma of apple juice and some sweetener. Mild, sweetish flavour of a fizzy drink with faint, sourish notes of apples. High carbonation. Mild, slightly fruity aftertaste. Does not taste of much. A reasonable thirst quencher but nothing more than that.

MrsDrewFace (2) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2016 does not count
Orangey color, smells ok for a cider. The taste is super watery and bland. Give me some McKenzie’s.

GlasgowTAD (1165) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Train can from Aberdeen to Glasgow via ScotRail boozetrolley pusher and his non-itemised receipt service. Pours carrot orange with a bubbly white head which reduces to a layer round the circumference. Aroma is artificial apple and sugary water. Taste is sweet apple, sugar sweet, dry-ish, sugary lacing on tongue, sweet finish.

Pours an orange colour. Taste is dry and strong. Reminds me of Thatchers Gold. Good for a macro cider
