Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Comes as "Magners Original Vintage Cider" - but only at 4,5% ABV. What a strange colour indeed, this is sort of orangey pink! Some sort of medicinal, chemical tang in both aroma and flavours - not so pleasant. Those off flavours dominate and owerpowers the apples. Pity. 240705

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Golden color, fizzy, no head retention. Light aroma of ripe apples. Dry mouthfeel, taste of watery unfiltered apple juice. The flavor is very simple, some residual sweetness. Just a notch above the poor mass ciders.

Bottle. No head. Color is golden with a reddish hue. Aroma and taste are crisp and clean but not as rich on apples as I would prefer.
