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.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Pale gold colour with no head and slight carbonation. Sweet, slightly industrial apple aroma with a hint of yeast. Sweet apple apple flavour with a dry finish. Alcohol not prominent, but the drink wasn’t particularly refreshing either. Not my kind of cider.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Øltorvet.dk. Pours quite golden with a little head on the pour - disappears immediately. Lots of bubbles breaking the surface. Aroma is sweet with lots of red apples, a great dose of sourish oakiness. Mouthfeel is flatter than expected with a nice oily feel at first. Flavour masquarades the alcohol very well. Sweet and sticky apples at first, with a great dryness. The oak appears as a great tarty finish. A good cider, but it is very powerful, tart and dry.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml Bottle: Actually tasted this one almost a year ago, forgot to rate it as I see in my notes here. Poured golden, apple-juice in colour; mine offered no head at all. The aroma is obviously high in apples, but there’s a distinct sweet white wine coming through as well. Both prevalent in the flavour, but it’s extremely tart and unpleasant to me. Couldn’t finish it, but it’s possible it’s just not my thing.
