I can’t understand why this is rated so highly, it really isn’t particularly good to be honest. Pours a golden colour, slightly darker than the average cider, no head. The aroma could stand to be stronger, what is there is mostly apples and sugar. What really brings it down is the flavour; it is almost absent. Flavourless apples with a slight dry finish is all there really is to this one. Mouthfeel is pleasant and it manages to not be watery. Could have been much better.

ComradeK (1006) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a deep gold, fairly dark for a cider. Well-carbonated, and thus has a pleasant, sparkling mouthfeel. Crisp, fruity and very refreshing, with a neat, dry finish. Rather a good cider.

Chitown RB gathering Jan 2010: bottle shared by Frank, thanks

Golden hue with a small fizzy head. The aroma is a tad earthy and funky, leafy with a bit of unfermented sugars and butterscotch along with the expected apple overtone. The taste is apple juice and sugar, a tad woody, fleshy, and earthy as well. The mouth feel is sticky and soft. If not for the sugars this would be nice, hardly a "dry cider" if you ask me.
