thewolf (11101) - 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.

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

Marko (3878) - 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.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Corked 750 from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours hazy gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is sweet/tart with ripe/cooked apple. It is extremely tart. After the tart there is strong mixed apple skins. If this were a beer, I think we could call it sour/wild. Pretty good drink.

Lowenbrau (1865) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 70cl bottle. Hay colour, crispy, high carbonation, Taste is sour, herbal and subtle sweet flavours. A kind of mainstream asturian cider, for all kind of palates. Update: @II Prueba Popular de la Sidra Lugones 2014. Quite sour and lively carbonation. Enjoyable.

Corked bottle
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!
