Was digging through bottles in back of beer fridge and found this perfect beverage in advance of New Year’s Eve champagne. Nice apple aroma, sweet taste and sharp finish. Very enjoyable.

Pours a clear light amber. The aroma is slightly muted, McIntosh apples, vanilla, oak, calvados. Not too sweet, and finishes with a complex woodiness. Almost barrel aged. Has a mature apple profile, surprisingly good.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget in Nordstan, Gothenburg. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy deep golden body with a tiny crust of foam on top. Nose is red apples, wood, hints of red berries and wet paper. Taste is tart apple juice with hints of apple peel and wood. Maybe a tad bit sweet in the finish. Nice and fresh, with a clear, crisp profile.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Bottle. Golden colour with a small white head. Apple nose with hints of cinnamon. A lot of apple flavour with a well blended sweetness. Not like an alcopop but not as dry as a british cider.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear golden with extremely little white head. Very little lacing, super smooth texture, medium body. Taste is slightly sweet apple and long slightly dry finish. One of the best ciders I have had.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a clear, thin, straw yellow color of apple juice with almost no foam. Definite apple flavors and aromas. Seemed more tart, less sweet and less carbonated than competing Woodchuck and Woodpecker. I think I prefer this one, but admitedly, they’re all basically apple juice fermented by champagne yeast. Few of beer’s differentiating aspects exist here: color, body, head retention, grain diversity, yeast/fermentation profile, etc. Oh well, if you like hard cider, you’ll like this one. Tasty and refreshing.

I found this to be a perfect alternative to a traditional german beer, its aroma, light taste carbonation and lack of a head made it so easy to drink I had to be careful not to have too many (I was driving) much better than any other hard cider Ive had no bitter taste no complaints here
