I’ve had a couple of ciders recently which I liked, but this one seems very ordinary and unexciting. I would surmise that ’organic’ means quite something with apples as they are one of the most heavily sprayed crops, with loads of pesticides used on them commercially. However, this cider is very plain across the board, aroma, looks, flavor, mouthfeel, and has zero complexity.

From the bottle marked SE0501. Not sure what that means,. The pour is golden yellow with a fizzy white head and head and busy carbonation. The apple fruit is evident in the aroma but so is the corn and grain. Light, refreshing body but typical for a cider. Good apple quality to the taste with a clean finish. I don’t mind ciders because I find them to be refreshing. It is hard fir me tio rate them as beers though.

kajser27 (866) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2015
Clear, golden colored, small diminishing white head. Aroma is of apple juice, some tart apples, light+ horse blanket. Taste is moderate sweet apples, tart apples and peel, just the right amount of moderate tartness, some funky barnyard notes. Semi dry finish, crisp. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Really good cider. (on tap, Earl of Lonsdale, London)

Marduk (4785) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear dark golden color. Brief bubbly white head. Acidic, leather, very sour apples in aroma. Sweetish, clove, apples, spicy in taste. Crisp mouthfeel. Little vinegary and farmhouse touch in aftertaste. Drinkable if nothing else is available.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2015
It’s better than something like Strongbow or woodchuck or angry orchard, as much as that means. Straightforward apple, sweet.

550ml bottle from Beers of Europe, with Stuu666. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aromas of oak, apple, custard. Taste brings a rhubarb note to the custard, more apples. Light tart finish. Odd.
