50cl bottle from el corte ingles, lisbon. Very light golden color with thin head. Fizzy medium to high carbonation. Sweetness is maybe to high for me, but there’s some bitterness here. Interesting apple and light wood aroma.

Beer4000 (4401) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2012
500 ml bottle (on sale at Tesco). Clear golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Quite mild apple aroma, apple core and a hint of sulfur. OK fruity apple flavor with mild acidity and a light apple core impression. A bit thin in body and plain aftertaste, some fruit flavor is actually missing in the aftertaste. OK enough, but pretty in the middle of the road all over and easy forgotten.

prawlie (1095) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass. Head disappears immediately, light lager colour with a little fizz. Pleasant cider aroma, nice and fruity. Sour and dry finish, well matured apples. A reasonable drink, but ultimately I prefer the taste of a beer.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2012
2010 Vintage A few seconds of white foam, then very clear yellow-golden liquid. Apples, and a sourness that smells acetic, woody, not unlike Oud Bruin (with apples,). Tart, but not acidic, very dry apples with little restsweetness; faraway glimpse of wry bitterishness. Bit watery, thinnish MF; falling flat; little or no carbonation. Rather decent, certainly better than expected.
