JStax (5222) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Lours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is straight apple juice. Not much else going on here. Tastes like apple juice and Cheerios. Drying sweet finish. Not bad necessarily, but not really something Id want to drink again.

sound67 (699) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Clear, bright golden yellow. Small head. *** Nose: Ripe apples, a hint of herbs. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, not watery at all. Soft carbonation. *** Taste: Sweet red apples, some vinegar, but overall really sweet and fruity at the start. Sweet and sour middle and finish, still very apple-y. Aftertaste of red apples, with a hint of vinegar. *** Impressions: The sweetest cider I’ve tried yet, but with enough vinegar balance to prevent it from being cloying. Extremely fruity, so I’d recommend this to cider lovers who put sweet apples front and center.

Average appearance. Overripe apple aroma with hints of solvents. Flavor isn’t bad. Not too sweet, just solid workaday cider. Good body. Ok finish.
