Flaske fra helsekosten i Straensenteret, delt med Ovesen før tapping av Holmens Kjerne 3: klar gylden med 4-sekunders skum. Nydelig eplearoma sammen med litt honnning og pære. Enda bedre smak, balansert og meget lettdrikkelig.

Bottle from Waitrose. Golden in colour, with a touch of fizz. An easy drinking cider, with some sweetish apple fruit upfront, before a drier, lingering finish. Ok.
