Bottle. Pours clear dark yellow with small foamy head. Aroma is yeast and fermented apples, but also hints of soap. Taste is medium sweet and light acidic - maybe with hints of bitterness? Body is watery to light oily and dry with fizzy carbonation that doesn’t turn acidic. Finish is light notes of apples, honey and flowers and the carbonation sticks to the mouth for quite some time, making is very fresh and crisp.

Draught at Stereo. Nice appley smell. Fizzy with no head to speak of. Good by commercial cider standards.

sulawang (698) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
pours with minimal head, medium carbonation, medium size bubbles. Lots of filtered apple juice flavour, but in there is an aggressive sugar component. Finishes medium clean but rather plain. Slightly above average cider.

cfrancis (2672) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2011
Pours a dark yellow with a fizzy head and loads of carbonation. Aroma is sweet apple and yeast. Taste is a little too sweet and a little too carbonated for me.

tfredvik (1322) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2012 Clear, golden. Aroma and flavour of apples. Moderate carbonation, half dry. Not exactly a very exciting cider, but nice anyway. Is very close to Magners Original Irish Cider, but lacks the subtle touch of oak of the latter. [50 cl bottle, Meny, Carl Berner, Oslo]
