Hazy yellow colour. Aroma of wood and yeast. Tart at first becomes drier
Nice but not as apple intense as some of its contemporaries.

Opened at Seacoast Beer tasting. Purchased at Leary’s, the Amrsbury location. $12.04 ($11.99 + $0.50) for the 750 mL bottle. Aromas of horse blanket, sweat, cotton, Northen Spy apples, sourdough starter, DME, and chives. Tastes much the same with the addition of roasted beets, damp newspaper, and bird seed. Likeable. Damn, Spain really enjoys their ciders slightly tart and dry.

750ml bottle pours out a slight hazy straw. Nose is nice apple pear spice and some sour notes. Taste is more of the crisp apple tartness some pear and a nice little spice.

Pours slightly hazed yellow into a tumbler. Dusty apple and barnyard aromas. Soft with funky yeast and dry apple upfront turning to spicy leather in the medium length finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 In short: A bland semi-funky Sidra dominated by apples flavor. Meh.
How: Bottle at Atari Gastroteka, San Sebastian Spain.
The look: Almost clear blonde body with no head to speak of.
To me a typical Sidra is: Funky aroma of medium intensity with many light color fruits in the back (not just apples). Body is medium in size, a texture that is both juicy and doughy and with minimal carbonation. Taste is a lot less apple-forward than a regular cider with apples but also various light color tropical/citrus/exotic fruits. Yeast presence accompanied by a bready sensation. Typical Sidras have a mild sourness and ends with a mild-medium acidic bite. Thirst quenching and also a bit nourishing.
This one: As above with more focus on freshly squeezed red apples. Low carbonation even by Sidra standards. A little less funky and with less of a yeast presence. A bit sweeter too. Overall this was a poor example of the style. My first Sidra, I was as disappointed as Iggy Pop when he received a shirt as a birthday present.

Bottled, thanks andregoncalves! Cloudy golden, still. Funky citric nose dry with undwerlying sweetness. Packed with citric apple flavours. Relatively full bodied. Intense and almost viscous.
