HerrBierkoenig (334) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2014
From 0,75l bottle bought at Marks&Spencer, Bratislava. Pours nice clear golden liquid, small white foamy sparkling head appeared for a second, Aroma: sweet autumn spicy apples, old wood, aroma of autumn - late September breeze, Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, medium sour, red autumn apples, french galette au pommes (baked puff pastry with apples), cinnamon, Palate: medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, abrupt apple sweet finish. Overall: good, nice aroma, perhaps too sweet, but very drinkable and light in alcohol. Nice aroma reminding old memories :)

danlo (1299) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
750ml bottle, chilled. Sparkling golden colour, bubbly white foam head that quicky dissipates away and aroma of juicy apple, light wood. Taste is sweet tangy fruity apple, sugary, with green apple, honey & slight woody notes. Slick mouthfeel, light bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry crisp finish. Nicely drinkable.

TheCametron (1863) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear Gold with no head and no bubbles. Aroma of partially fermented over-ripe apples. Sweet and fresh. Tastes of fresh crisp apples with a tiny bite of fizz and a sweetness that makes way for a clean finish. Nice.

McNeillR (1303) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Clear pale golden, no obvious head. Smells like a kids clothes store. Sugary and no booze. Squeaky initial taste stampeded over the carbonation. Oversweet, clean as you like - rich wholesome cider mixed with artisan soda water, essentially. Hilarious.

Gurthnar (2096) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden to orange colour. Overall rather sweet and red apple evoking. Light pleasant sourness. Indeed refreshing. Finish is balanced sweet and sour, a bit sticky, which does not annoy in cider. Best cider from our local Marks&Spencer.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Dark gold with a transient white head. Appletize, mouldering fruit, cork, light vinegar aroma. Bright and effervescent with a sweet, slightly dank Lindemans’s Faro-like and Appletize character. Plenty enough sherbet tang, acidity and mouldering fruit to keep it from being cloying. Tasty, summery stuff.

Cuso (4974) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle from Marks&Spencer, Bratislava. Dark golden color with medium white head. Sweet apples in aroma with some tartness in background. Taste, baked sweet apples, cinnamon. Paired with salty Slovak cheese. Nice combination. Overall easy drinkable cider.
