FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2013
330ml bottle (Molotov, Helsinki)
Slightly fake apple aroma, IFF almost certainly involved! Crisp palate, fizzy carbonation. Sweet apple taste, does taste like real apples have been invlved, but just feels too fake. Sweet and sweetener finish. Went down without a fight.

rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
275 ml bottle. L2348 N1287. BB 09/09/13. (K-Citymarket) Espoo, Finland.
Hazy. The colour is almost like water but there’s a small golden hue. Almost no head. Aroma is very sweet apple. The apple aroma is unnaturally strong. Flavour is sweetness and apples. The ingredients of this so called cider are quite unpleasant to read. So this is very far from being natural. Sweet it is.

Dermi (624) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2013
275 ml, bottled. Pours hazy pale yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma: Apples, syrup. Taste: Sweet, decent tartness. Palate: Decent body, highly carbonated. Not bad.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Yellow, straw, pale, haze. Nose a nice sweetish apple/pear/vanilla touch. With ripe apple backing. Body is medium light, a bit articial flavouring. Some tartness. Somewhat of a hybrid between the E-code flavored ciders and the ones that actually have apple DNA in them. But an easy drink.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Bottled (from Prisma, Vaasa). Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is apples, mild nectary and yeasty notes as well as some slight honeylike sweetness. Flavour is quite tart apples, not that sugary sweet at all. Refreshing, but a bit too strong carbonation to be really pleasant.
