50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a quickly diminishing and lacing white head. Mild apple aroma with a hint of alcohol. Sweet apple flavour with a lot of sugarish notes following. Light acidic to citric touch before the finish. Medium sweet finish. One of the best ciders you can get in Switzerland.

Tatad verteju kaa sidru, aizmirstot savu LV background ar sidru izstradajumiem. Prinpipaa kaa aidra lageroitos, loti viegls un atsvaidzinoss. Bet nu loti vienkarss, salodzinajuma ar alu kaa parastu lageri- vismaz sidrs arii liekas dzrrams.

minutemat (3877) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, sparkling. Aroma is sweet, syrupy commercial cider. Taste is much of the same, just way too cloying and sickly sweet to be palatable. Unbelievably, I used to like this. Then the more I drank, the more I hated it. Even the Bulmers family refused to drink it before they sold out to Heineken and moved to the States. That says a lot.

Heineken macht Cider, schaumer mal. Das Rücketikett verspricht in Fettdruck Kaliummetabisulfit, da schenk ich doch glatt nochmal nach. Optisch dunkles Gold, hier hilft auch das Rücketikett: Cochenillerot - Prost. Die Nase sagt Wein, der Gaumen sagt Weinschorle, zuckersüß im Abgang, irgendwie Apfel ist auch dabei. Ja, Heineken macht also Cider...

jfb (5355) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2015
(bottle) clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of apple juice, grass, some sugared pineapple, lemon concentrate and dishwashing liquid. flavour is mostly stale apple juice and sugar, slightly sweet, with just a light touch of raisins and earth in the finish. light- to medium-bodied with lively carbonation.
