Dark golden colour. This cider is dry and woody. There’s some sweet apple taste in the middle but overall the dryness is too overwhelming.

Cunningham (6059) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2015
Clear deep golden color with almost no head. Fine cider aroma. Apples, mild oak, basement and mild fruity. Medium + body. Balanced sweetness vs acidity. Average to soft carbonation. Not to typical cider this one. A bit higher complexity. Apples, oak, basement and mild fruity. Some alcohol and a bit dry ending. Nice tasty cider.

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Bottled. Surprisingly dark golden, close to ambery orange, colour, which has a small white head. Aroma is sweet apples, some wood, mild sourness as well as quite sugary and yeasty notes. Flavour is sugary, wooden, mild sour wooden notes as well as some sweet ripe apples to it. Mild almost syrupy notes to it as well. Balanced and quite delicious. This one I was sipping my share of for quite a while.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a finger or two of gaseous foam. Nose is musty apple, vanilla and some wet barnyard hay. On the palate there is some nice underlying baked apple with layers of vanilla, soft tannic apple skins and some musty wet barrel flavors linger.

olsvammel (4719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Fruity smell and taste with some fruits and light funk. A bit harsh though and has an aroma that reminds me of fruit pith.
