muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 19, 2008
550 ml bottle from the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served a bit above fridge temperature from a 550 ml Sam Smith’s glass. Bubbly, huge white head fizzes away quickly above the roiling, fizzy pale gold and very clear body....dusty, dry, rather tart and somewhat musty/rotten apple aroma, not terribly pleasant, somewhat weak, though real enough I suppose.....definitely more pleasant on the tongue than in the nose, moderately sweet but full of apple rather than sucrose flavor, juicy and pretty full-bodied, with carbonation a little softer and less forced-feeling than the appearance suggests....nothing amazing in the character here, but perfectly drinkable, reasonably balanced in the dry/sweet axis....that’s about it.

I have many ciders from around the world. This is by far one of my favorites. If you like hyper sweet or even champagne like ciders, then this probably not for you. It’s as about as basic as you can get. Thick refreshing flavor. Best if consumed really cold. To me...it’s a "cider mans" cider. If your craving candy, an apple is t probably gonna do the trick, if your favorite ciders are really sweet, this may not be the beverage for you. I love it!

minutemat (1502) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
550ml bottle on Scarborough Beach on a sunny day. Not quite as cold as I’d like. Initial sickly sweet, almost artificial Bulmers taste.. softening slightly after a few sips becoming more easy going. Light apple flesh, sugary, basic and clean, but generally not too bad by the end.

VinegarStroke (270) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle: Deep straw. Clear, high carbonation with coarse bead. Slightly cheese. Very fresh almost green acid apples. Bright. Off dry. Moderate acid and length. Easy drinking and refreshing. Like an off dry Riesling. Good balance.

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Very pale and clear golden. Refreshing cider taste. Slightly sour yellow apples. Not very interesting, but easily drinkable.

EtTuCthulhu (1023) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2014
The color is a clear yellow color with a large white head that fades rapidly, and the aroma is a dry mixture of apples and yeast. The taste is quite sweet and slightly sour, and the palate fuses a thin and slick texture, medium-light body, soft carbonation, and a sweet finish.

Sehr angenehmes Aroma nach Äpfeln und Himbeeren. Der Geschmack ist säuerlich und fruchtig, moussiert lebhaft. Sehr lecker.

Leichtes, weinartiges Aroma, auch nach braun gewordenen Äpfeln. Irgendwie urig. Gut eingestellte Restsüße. Erfrischend, gute Rezenz.
