3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apples seems to be pretty plain. Sweet palate.. and this probably kills the alcohol. Doesn’t feel 8% at all. Finish has a spicy-tannin note. The oak doesn’t come up much. Overall taste is good, too sweet for me, but good.

Kolor słomkowy, wodnisty. Zapach cydru. Smak szampan jabłkowy. Nawet dobry, Nie czuć w smaku tych 8,2%, ale uderza do głowy. Jeden z lepszych cydrów.

From Hipercor. 2014 edition. In Ikea’s pint glass. Watching Carmina o Revienta. The oak aging isnt noticeable. Its just a standard cider, not specially good not specially bad. A bit watery maybe

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, extremely pale yellow colour with some bubbles. Aroma has red apples, dry, somewhat yeasty. Medium, sweet taste, a little bit of dryness towards the finish. Alcohol pushes through a bit. Medium body, slick mouthfeel. Not that great in my opinion.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from work, so probably picked up at Sainsbury’s. It pours clear green - gold with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. The aroma is quite rough, barnyard, earth, sugary sweet, apple skin and apple cider. The taste is surprisingly light, sweetish, white sugar, apple pie, tinned fruits, alcohol hit, some acidity, earth and distant wood. The finish is pretty short. Medium body and fine carbonation. Found this a bit disappointing really - a bit thin and sweet. So-so.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold, no head. Apple aroma, no real oak presence. Surprisingly thin for the alcohol heft. Dry finish. OK.
