Marduk (6148) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks sister). Clear golden color. Brief, bubbly and fizzy head. Sweet, apples, caramel, rotten fruits in aroma. Apples, bad leather, apple seeds and some chemicals in taste. Feels chemical. Fizzy and sweet. Nope.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2016
330ml bottle from local supermarket in Helsinki. Quaffed in our hotel. Pours clear gold, sparkling. Sugary sweet apple aroma. Taste bears a nice, albeit sweet, apple fruitiness but not overly sugary. Drinkable. Surprisingly not bad.

laiti (8031) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
33 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg.
Aroma is somewhat mild with ripe-ish apples. Flavour as sweet apple juice, floury apples, fruit sugar and some leathery tones. Not as bad as I expected this to be. But I am still not having another one after this. Sweetness is the flaw here.

The looks of the bottle gives a natural impression and the cider being organic and all makes you believe this cider might be really good.

HenrikSoegaard (13067) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow colour. Moderate aplle aroma. Light sweet and dry apple flavor. Average finish. Lacks barnyrad notes from "real" cider, but as a industrial product deasent cider.

Countbeer (5997) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Big lively ashy white head, disappears slowly, on top of a clear apple juice colored cider. Aromas of apple skin, dust, fermented apples, some berries, light sharp tone... Flavours of apples, fermented apples, lightest glue tint, strange not the best bitters, some dryness, apple juice, light light sweet and tart, something sharp and a light rubber plastic tint... Aftertaste is apples, light bitter, light dry... Low to medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy dry texture.

330ml bottle (S Market, Finland)
Desperately pale, and a clear glass bottle to lap up all those lovely ultraviolet rays. Sweet apple aroma, packed full of esters which make me think they’ve come straight out of a test tube. Pretty watery fizzy palate. Taste very thin, just a quick blast of Anna’s parent’s dried apple slices (with the skins), which fades to almost nothing. Drying finish.
