2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) - thanks mjs!
Apple and booze aroma. Apple everywhere, some core bitterness there too. Very boozy at every step. Harsh and sharp, yet sugary on the lips too. Has no drinkability at all, and even lacks sipability.

375ml bottle (mjs). Clear dark golden color. Sweet, caramel, apples, bit watery aroma. I got three words to describe it- sweet apple jam. Way too sweet. Damn it’s sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle @ Hey Julien is back and Dean’s floor is moist tasting. Clear apple juice golden color, no head. Smell and taste are -I know, not much help but this is what it is- strong but balanced concentrated apple juice. Low carbonation, good body.
