3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Virtually no head. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of apple skin, lemon zest, plastic, alcohol (slightly fusel - bug spray). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation (almost none), lightly to moderately astringent.
Not too bad but it doesn’t really offer too much by way of enticement or uniqueness. The plastic and fusel notes aren’t strong, but make it hard to really enjoy the nose. Good flavor balance though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pale golden body with sediments and almost no head. Aroma is fresh apple with a little hint of wood. Flavor is quite mild, dry and acidic apple, rather moderate in barnyard and funk compared with other Basque sidras. Still nice and refreshing, a bit thin body but a great refreshment.

75cl bottle from Museo Sidra Astigarraga. @home 13-05-2015.

In short: bitter cider.
Pouurs hazy greenish golden with little white head, vanishing. Little lacing. Tart, leathery, wet, apple nose. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is fruity, tart, "volatile acidity" that vanishes fast and leads to a more bitter finish, dry, astrigent. Refreshing and enjoyable.
