2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
275 ml bottle. L3128. BB 03/05/14. (K-Citymarket) Kuopio, Finland.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Very lively in the glass. Sweet sugary notes, crisp apple and some acidity in the aroma. The flavour is apple wine, some sweetness and mild acidity. Rather mild flavour. The organic is good, this cider isn’t.
