muzzlehatch (4420) - 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.

kajser27 (642) - 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 (4503) - 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.

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2015
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.

500 ml bottle from notes. Pours a clear golden color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, light tart, some apple peel, thin, watery, just an average cider, nothing to revisit.
