3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2011
bottle. vibrant nose of must, bitter apple skin and even something resembling hops (grassy, green, musty). high bitterness, medium-high astringency with semi-sweet apple pulp flavor. above average, which given the presence in nearly every bar / sidreria in asuturias I figured it was more of a common / simple sidra, so the surprise was nice.

Marko (3766) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 23, 2010
Bottle (2005 vintage!) courtesy of fiulijn whom I thank a lot :). After doing a huge job on Asturian cideries, I finally get to try an Asturian cider :). Yellow body bordering somewhere between hazy and murky. Nicely sweet and sourish corky appley aroma. Sweeter than I thought it would be. Sure, there is a relatively strong acidity and notes of glue (that are pleasant), but the underlying corky sweetness balances this out nicely. A lovely cider in my opinion.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at Sideria la Socarrena, Barcelona.
Bright very hazy yellow looks. Big and fruity, slightly acidic with some ripe and chewy apples. Quite sweet but a nice tart finish balances it out. Good stuff

thewolf (10767) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle, bought in some cheese-shop in Barcelona behind the Maria Christina market.
Pours pale hazy yellow, no head. A bit more yellow than the Camín version. Aroma is quite tart, adding both sweet red apples to zesty, tart green ones. Quite fresh feel. Low carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is tart, light apple vinegar, dry on my teeth. Green apple zest dominating throughout with a slight citric finish. Nice, despite the light heartburn it gave me.

Fresh bottle at the Sidrería El Ñeru, Madrid. Cloudy golden colour. Fresh sour apple aroma. Very good soft mouthfeel. Lovely sour fresh apple flavour. Sor dry apple finish. Yum! Goes great with the strong cheese called Queso Cabrales!

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
(on 70 ml. bottle) My first tryout in sidras and this much like a mix of cider and geuze. Sure has that "barnhouse"-feel, actually quite like horseurin and manur. But Ilike that stuff. Smihazy yellow, no head. The apples apears shortly, but the stablearomas are very strong in the finish too, as well as the alkcohol.

Beautiful blond color. Aroma of apples, hazelnuts and almonds; subtle and complex. Dry mouthfeel, astringent, citrusy, acid, a bit fruity; with wood and lightly smoked. A cider with character!
