On tap @several locations. Mainstream sparkling cider, this was was quite popular in Asturias decades ago. Nowaday is just found in few places. Quite sweet, sugary, some artificial flavours. A bit poor.

25cl bottle from sidra y sidras. Color is very clear and head is thin. Body is quite smooth. Taste is quite sweet. Aroma is apple. This is not that great but it’s not bad.

Draught at random bar in Madrid. Bright golden, no head. Mid sweet with some citric acid fighting an uphill battle against sweet fruit. Ripe apples, whicj are not backed by any tannines. Quite simple cider, not really worthwile.

Peachy red. Nose tart and slightly funky. Flavor is full of sugar, sugar, and possibly a large quantity of cheaply-made artificial sweetener. Simply astoundingly sugary stuff, any apple flavor pretty much dies under the assault of the sweetness.

A very sweet cider.Too sweet for me. It was a treat to get a cider that so few had rated. Could have been old but for sure it wasn’t my style.

Nice amber color,heavy apple aroma with that really seems to show it’s sweetness early.The flavor was apple and very very sweet with that theme lingering throughout the tasting.There is also a slight acidic side and a bit of a bandaid taste as well.I Have to agree with JK it is a bit funkafied and not at all good,but still worth a try.

Thanks to Footbalm for sharing this one. Aroma is kinda funky, as if it were naturally fermented. Red color, first red cider I have had. Flavor is very sweet, almost sugary. Worth trying, but unfortunate that the flavor doesn’t live up to the aroma.

Pour is light golden yellow and crisply clear...smell is delicious...mildly alcoholic apples with some yeast...this smells way beyond 4%, which at 4% is probably a very bad thing...mouthfeel is incredibly lively with some apple, alcohol, and something sweet and nasty but I don’t quite know what...blech...hello drain...

Blond color. Some apple aroma. Quite sweet with a vinegar touch. Not good.
