Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2009
A golden cider with a thin receeding white head. A pleasant aroma of sour apples and light horseblanket. In mouth, a tartish apple with light aldehyde harshness, a bit thin. Bottle from LCBO giftbox, x-mas 2006. BB 07-08.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
Flaske: Årgang 2007. Udmærket duft af æbler på en klar lys cider. Smagen er for domineret af alkohol og en smule stald, og bestemt ikke lige så god som standard weston. Meget tør finish.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2009
(Bottle from Tesco’s, Diss) Light golden with fast bubbles and no head. Smell tart apples, yeast, wild, sharp and strong. Nice. Smooth apple taste with sparkling carbonation. Sweet in the back of the throat with some tart bitter underneath. A little wine-y-ness to it. Very nice cider.

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2009
Bottled (from Alko, Vaasa). Golden colour, no head. Aroma is mild alcohol, some apple, vanilla, wood and some slight notes of champagne. Flavour is brutal wood, grass, dry champagne, mild apples and some vanilla kicking in in the finish. Very dry and alcoholic, yet quite thinbodied. Easy to drink though, for being 8.2%.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 500ml bottle (Hell Hunt, Tallinn)
Clear golden cider, slightly fizzy, but no head. Dry fruity aroma, quite subdued. Mellow apple taste, quite sharp, not too cartoony at all. Fairly sweet, balances the sourness, but not at all sticky. Reasonable finish reflects the earlier tastes.
