Can 33 cl. Courtesy of oh6gdx. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Sweet, greasy, perfumy nose. Medium body, very little clean apple flavour. A strange artificial tartness. A wannabe "real" cider - which it is clearly not. 150413

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml can (S Market, Helsinki)
Pleasant apple-skin aroma. Fizzy palate. Nice medium taste, some very noticeable sweetness, but an OK dry bite too. Fruit flavours do convince you real apples were involved. Sweetness not to sugary either. One of the better Finnish supermarket ciders, as it’s not sickly sweet for a start. More drinkable than their macro pale lagers certainly. Only ’English’ in the same way that really shit English supermarket ciders are English.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml can. L2194 L8635. BB 08/04/13. (K-Citymarket) Kuopio, Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny head.
Pear, sugary sweetness, something quite artificial and industrial in aroma.
Flavour is a bit more dry but still quite sweet with touch of apples and notes of pear. Not much of a flavour. Not much to do with real English cider.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Canned (from Prisma, Vaasa). Yellowish golden colour, small white head, that canishes quite fast. Aroma is sweet apple, mild wood and some slight acidic notes. Flavour is sweet and a bit tart apple with some mild sweet wooden notes as well. Actually not the worst of Finnish macrociders, but still rather sweet. Not that dry either. Rich carbonation. This one ice cold on a hot summerday would be refreshing.
