Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, large sample. Clear golden color, large rocky head quickly bubbling away to a short frothy head.

750ml bottle - thanks Marduk
Simple apple aroma, dried apple slices. Ditto taste, drying, but crisp. Simple cidre. Preferred the 2%, but this would be good with salmon or chicken.
