thirstyrabbit (1581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2011
440ml can. Golden applejuice colour. Medium head. Light aroma of fermented apples. Taste is medium dry and the finish is pleasantly tart. A bit watery palate but this one is still much better than most of the oversweetened local ciders.

KyotoLefty (8431) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2011
Can. Rather average apple nose, pale gold color with lace. Bland, medium sweet flavor, apple, some spice. Just a touch of tartness. Drinkable and tasty, though not very interesting. Refreshing, not much else going on.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
500ml can. Similar deScription and same ABV. Crisp gold with minimal head. Apple must aroma. Tastes like apple juice. I think I would prefer the DRY version. A nice finishing tartness.

ectuohy27 (869) - ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2014
(As Marks & Spencer Cider) Good but by no means great, though compared to the local Estonian chemical-sugar stuff, this at least is made from real apples. Rather weak aroma and watery flavor leads to a dull, dry finish. Nothing compared to the good stuff from Westons (but perhaps the low abv and literally generic labeling is the cause for this?)

Cunningham (6236) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2015
Clear golden color with a small bubbly white head. Nice apple flavor. Tad sweet with a semi dry ending. Quite ok balance. A bit fruity and typical apple flavor. Decent fresh cider.
[Can (as Marks & Spencer Cider] from Marks & Spencer at Stansted Airport in London, England]

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Can at home shared with Sarah. Crystal clear golden / orange coloured pour with a fleeting white froth. Aroma is semi sweet apple juice, plastic, a little bile, woody apple pips. Flavour is composed of tangy apple, light acid, fruit juice. Palate is very light, spritzy carbonation and semi sweet. Slightly thin. Pretty clean, decent apple character.
