3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330ml, served cold. Pours dark reddish to brown. Head is fizzy and disperses immediately. Aroma is weak, of sweet apples and slight strawberry notes. Mouth feel is mostly watery and light, with lively and fizzy carbonation. Tastes slightly sweet and nicely sour, not so dry. Flavors are of sour-sweet cooked green apples, lemon sorbet, over-ripe fruits and some vanilla notes. After taste is very pleasant, lightly sweet and not sticky, with cooked apple flavors. A very nice, refreshing and interesting drink.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear deep golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma of green apples, a bit vinous, with a funky hint, sulphuric notes, light spiciness, floral notes and a faint citric hint. Semi-dry flavor, with a bit of sweetness and a bit of tartness, apples, a bit rotten, some alcohol, something weird and unpleasant I can’t put my finger on, a bit of sulphur and an astringent hint in the finish. Aroma is decent, flavor not so much. Maybe just an old bottle, because I’ve had it a few times before and it ranged from "OK" to "good".

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, clear quite dark gold to brown colour, aroma of apple tart and cinamon, flavour of cooked apples, nrown sugar and a noticable alcoholic presence, carbonation a touch too strong, quite sweet and certainly not dry, doesnwt feel like it is made from fresh pressed apples.
Not good and quite heavy, not like a cider should be.
