rosenbergh (6491) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013
500 ml bottle. Angleterre, Helsinki, Finland. Clear golden colour with almost no head. Apple, apple skin, mild tartness, dryness and some earthiness in the aroma. The flavour is rather sweet. Apple, apple wine, sugary sweetness, mild cinnamon and apple skin in the flavour. Not bad but quite sweet for a dry cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 17, 2013
Dazzling clear gold, not much in the way of carbonation. Pear is quite pronounced on the nose, with some stewed sweet notes. Smells like an orchard! Nice and dry on the palette and a little tart toward the finish. Oh so crisp. The second very good Irish cider I’ve had this year, long may it continue.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2012
Bag in a box as 6% Mac Ivor’s Cider at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, 2012. Pours a cloudy straw colour with an aroma of pears, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with well balanced alcohol. Nicely dry to finish with a lingering pear quality.

Beersiveknown (2734) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 19, 2012
Pours slightly darker gold and noticeably less carbonated than the medium. Notes of custard, hay and toffee apples on the nose. Dryish but not drying or tart, subtle apple flavour and long dry finish.
