UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 28.08.2013, tap (as Lervig / Safteriet Cider) @ Henrik Øl og Vinstove:
No head, maybe a few bubbles. Aroma is fresh fruity, lots of sweet yellow apples, hay, grass. Taste is dry grassy, apple skin, sorrel, sour unripe apples, raw rhubarb, sour green apples, hay. Very dry. Fair enough.

Total Score: 4,3
Frisk fruktig lukt med preg av friske epler, høy, gjær. Frisk lett tørr smak med preg av friske syrlige epler, gjær, syregras, epleskal. God syre og bitterhet som set litt. Veldig god.

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. A cider from Lervig? Interesting. Pours a hazy light golden body with some tiny bubbles visible. Aroma is apple juice, English-style yeast tones, straw, wood and hints of citrus. Taste is mild apple juice (reminding me of those yellow apples whose name eludes me at the moment), dry yeast tones, sawdust and hints of citrus in the finish. Medium to light body with a pleasantly (and well-suited) soft carbonation. Nice and easy-going cider.

Almost clear golden with a white head. Apples both in the aroma and taste. The finish was dry. Refreshing and a bit sour. A descent one.

On tap @ Patricks. Clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma is mild and quite clean of apples and apple cores. Flavor is both acidic sour and sweet, with apples of course. Kudos for making a real cider with real apples and no bullshit. Medium body and decent in aftertaste. No rocket science here, but a nice and straight sweet and sour apple cider.
