FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2013
330ml bottle (S Market, Helsinki)
Not a big aroma, but whatís there is quite dense and heavy - sweet and sour appley aromas. Watery in the palate, but with a spine-tingling sharpness. Flavour emasculated by the 4.7% strength, really does taste watered down. Thatís a shame, as itís a nice dry cider. The retronasals are packed full of sharp sour apple skins. Taste is a little mealier, but not too mealy. Finish is sharp and crips, and leaves you with just a little bit of toffee.
