jredmond (6297) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2015
2013 vintage - pours a clear white wine body with light bubbles and no head or lacing. Aroma is light musky Apple. Mouthfeel is light and dry with nice carbonation and notes of musky Apple skins, dry fruit and white wine. Not overly sweet like most ciders. Not bad.

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle (from Alko Kivihaka, Vaasa, as Orpens Fresh Pressed Apple Cider Vintage 2012, 5.3 %). Pale golden colour, not that much head. Aroma is apple juice with some mild wooden notes. Flavour is apple juice, which is a bit more to the tart, than sweet side. Otherwise quite bland and almost watery.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 29, 2015
330ml bottle @Black Door. Pale yellow color. No head. Pear, fruity, watery aroma. Very weak aroma. Fruity, apples, sweetish taste. Very dry mouthfeel. Carbonation is very high. Not bad, but lacks of depth.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2015
330ml bottle (Black Door, Helsinki)
Extremely pale. Served cold, so very low aroma. Watery palate, fizzy, a bit weak. Dry sharpness, but lacking body, and basically lacking balls. Easy, and has pleasant sharpness. But thin. Finish does leave some sharp cideriness on your lips, which is nice.

Beersiveknown (3925) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Clear pale blonde with temporary fluffy white head and steady stream of bubbles. Fairly sulphorous nose with some citric acid and cider apple skins in behind. Tart apples up front and tingly carbonation. Sweet apple middle, fairly full bodied, tannic notes, sour apple sweets, some sulphur, long dry finish. Fairly well balanced, shame about the sulphur.

garthicus (2798) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Little to no info on the brewer, website is a placeholder only. Appearance: Champagne coloured, no head, good visible carbonation. Aroma: Mild apple, sweet, a little champagne like. Flavour: Sharp carbonated apples, quite tart, leaves a coating on the teeth, something almost synthetic about it but it tastes pretty good, refreshing.
