(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear pale yellow with nice lasting film of bubbles. Nose of funky apple cider, dusty, somewhat old (if old is a smell). Taste of sugar, apple skins, with a thin to medium body. Alcoholic finish.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a clear golden body with some fizz. Aroma of alcohol, dryness, and decently fruit forward. Taste is dry, sparkling and nice. Slightly acidic. Quite drinkable, but lacks a bit in complexity.

Straightforward apple cider aroma. Off dry with firm tannins and hints of leather. Pretty unremarkable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Bottle. Very light straw color, no head. Very mild appleskin aroma, not a lot of sweet or tart, almost a little pear. Well-carbonated, slight sweetness to start, mild tartness halfway through, sweeter finish. Pretty mild and uneventful cider.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Golden color. No head. Nose is apple and yeast. Flavor is dry at the start but finishes sweet with a bit of yeast and a touch of booze. It is what it is I guess.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 18, 2008
Light golden with no head. Aroma is of lightly sour apples, and slightly sweet. The tartness picks up a bit in the flavor along with a sweet middle and a dry, mild sour finish. Low carbonation throughout this cider. Solid cider.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle from weaver street market. Took a chance on a local product.Pours light like white wine with no head. Havent found too many ciders with a lasting head so I cant take points off for that. Nose is dry with fresh apples and oak. Flavor and mouthfeel are also very dry with notes of sweetness. Alcohol noted, but not a disturbance. Kinda bland and watery at times. Pretty good, but I guess I was hoping for a little more.
