A light yellow cider with no head - as expected. The aroma is of oak and apples. The flavor is primarily of acidic apples. An OK cider.

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a rough, dissipating head. Tart apple aroma. Medium body, quite sweetish with distinct apple flavours. Very soft and pleasant, the alcohol is definitely there but yet quite discreet. 180506

oh6gdx (20902) - 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%.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle from Sainsbury. Pale gold, no head. Some rubber upfront, but then fresh apple fruit aroma. Carbonation in mouth is ok. Bit more rubber, but some nice apple/peach flavour. Finish has some intense syurupy fruit and good dryness. Above average commercial cider. But then what do I know about cider?

Bottled. Pale golden with no head. Lots of sourness in the aroma, along with apples and yeast. Sour apples, yeast and some medicin-like notes in the flavor. Thin, astringent mouthfeel. Lovely and refreshing cider. (060518)
