Bottle (RBESG2011, Grand Tasting)
Dis have sinky crap, but that stayed in the bottle. Vinegary aroma. Very dry and acidic. Close to a UK cider. The apple in this is clear, but perhaps it’s a too dry for me.

Martin243 (772) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle ordered in a restaurant in Costa Teguise: Reading the notes above, I think I was sold a duff ’un: It wasn’t "clear, transparent, bright yellow", but cloudy like scrumpy. It didn’t taste good, just sour with a hint of parmesan. but my sample may not be representative. Live and learn!

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 bottle. vibrant nose of must, bitter apple skin and even something resembling hops (grassy, green, musty). high acidity, medium-high astringency with semi-sweet apple pulp flavor. above average, which given the presence in nearly every bar / sidreria in asturias I figured it was more of a common / simple sidra, so the surprise was nice.

Marko (3933) - 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.
