IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle. Pour was medium to light golden with a light apple aroma. Body was light with a mostly dry, but somewhat sweet character. Tasted like there was just a little sugar addition, for the alcohol content was 8.2%. The apple flavors were quite nice, not being too tart, sour, or sweet, however the alcohol was a bit strong. Decent.

Benzai (7301) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle shared @ weekly tasting by Dutchdrebus. Clear pale golden color, no head. Aroma is heavily white wine. Taste is quite fruity, vinous, lightly sweet, sweet apple and a hint of cherries in the background. Not sure whether this is good as a cider but I quite like it.

DutchDrebus (3876) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
2012 vintage @ benzai. Clear pale yellow colour with no head (I know, ciders don’t have head). Smells apple, wine, oak. Tastes apple, wine, wood, slightly corky. It’s probably pretty decent, but I’m not a fan. Medium body, no carbo.

BitchPls (518) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
2013. Golden yellow cider. Mild apple aroma. Quite soft. Some green apples in the taste but quite mild. Very good balance and a nice taste but lacks depth a little. The alcohol content doesn’t taste anywhere.

Holmen2 (682) - NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
Clear golden. Aroma of apples and pears. Refreshing cider taste. Dangerously quaffable considering its ABV.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours sparkling clear gold with a small and quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is apples, fresh and fragrant, light cookie, honey notes and wet oak. Flavor is sweet apples with a faint tartness, light honey and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

wimpyjoe (3543) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Leeds city centre. 2013 Vintage. Not strong tasting despite the high percentage. Has a very palatable light texture with good apple aromas and tastes. Pale yellow in colour.

edsspoon (323) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
2013 vintage. Pours pale straw coloured with a fizzy white head which fades to a ring. Aroma of apple, pear and spices with some yeast. Taste is dry and fruity with apple, pear and lemon. Medium sweetness. Minerally and tarte, light carbonation. Easy to drink, perhaps dangerously so.
