COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: I England har man brygget æblecider i umindelige tider. Og den stolte tradition er udgangspunktet for udviklingen af Somersby Apple Cider. Dog har vi tilpasset vores cider til den danske smag. I aromaen oplever du en duft af dejlige solmodne sommeræbler, og smagen afsluttes med en behagelig syre. Farven er gylden og med perlende bobler.

English: Somersby Cider is a refreshing, sparkling and natural cider with 15% apple juice and 4.7% alcohol. Best enjoyed on ice. Ingredients: Apple wine, sugar, concentrated apple juice, carbonation, flavours, citric acid, natural aroma and 3 different E-numbers.

Editor’s note: Available in Denmark through Carlsberg, and in Norway through Ringnes.

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 15, 2008
33 cL bottle at Floras Kaffebar. Pours clear and almost pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet juicy apples. Flavour is sweet with a very fruity touch. Decends into a light aspertam like flavour in the finish.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2008
Bottled. A light golden cider - very sparkling. The aroma is refreshing of green apples. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of green apples with hints of wood in the finish, but the sweetness also stays and makes it a bit cloying - very simple, just a summer drink for the young.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Clear yellow with a bubbly dissipating white head. Aroma of apple and cinnamon. Medium body, very sweet and artificial apple notes - very sugary indeed. No apple acidity whatsoever. Even for a commercial cider this is pretty bad. 160909

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head. Aroma is apple juice. Flavour is the same. Very sweet in every way. Atleast it’s refreshing...

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
Free bottle at Copenhagen Airport Lounge
Pale blond color. Light aroma of green apples, tastes like sparkling apple juice (the one you can find in Switzerland). Low league.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2008
Can. It pours a very sparkling clear, pale yellow body, with the carbonation almost stopping after a few seconds. No sign of a head. Apples, a touch of yeast, loads of sugar and with a general artificial impression. Quite thin in the mouth, effervescent, and sticky sugary, leaving a thin layer of coating on your teeth. Apples, some yeast, white sugar and a little citric note in the flavor. Apples and sugar in the finish. Even though it’s this sweet and sticky, it still has some palate-cleansing qualities, guess that’s the apple-wine, but I’ll have a real cider instead of this one anytime. Didn’t finish the can. Maybe I rated it too high, but who cares. (080624)

Dedollewaitor (14104) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2008
Bottle. Pale yellow with no head. What is this? Tastes like a weak vodka/applejuice!!! Very sweet apples & sugar. Actually a bit surprised - this is not really cider!
