2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland Saturday Session 1 - 01/03/14.
Clear pale blonde with minute off white spotting.
Nose is light apple, papery, thin.
Taste comprises sweet sugary notes, suggestion of apple.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet closure.
It packs some flavour for 0.5% to be fair, better some of the Alkoholfrei German lager efforts, ultimately to sweet for me.

Bottle. A clear, golden cider, still. Weak aroma with some apples and damp, sweaty notes. The flavor has a touch of pukeish sweetness, still the apples dominating. Medium body, faintly puckering. Short finish with apples and sweetness. Not much to say about this, certainly isn’t good. 140301

33 cl bottle from Systembolaget Avenyn, Göteborg. BB 07, 2013; sampled on October 31, 2012.
Clear straw yellow color, very small white head. Sweet, light acidic, white wine, apple juice scent. Apple juice, a bit sweet, some sugar taste. Hints of sulphur, though mainly apple juice aftertaste, also some table salt. Medium smooth mouthfeel with fairly low co2 coming through. Sort of tart dry bitter finish. Apple peel kind of dry bitterness. Like a soft drink.
