This one is quite a bit sweeter than the Woodchuck Granny Smith cider, but it has kind of a nice brown sugar flavor that makes up for a little excess sweetness. It is more like a honey-gold color than amber, not very bubbly which is fine with me. It’s perfectly fine for the average cider drinker, but a bit too sweet for my taste and too middle of the road. Will probably not revisit.

Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Golden colour, no head. aroma is apple, some sweetness, mild nectar and wood. Flavour is apples, some mild green apple skins as well as quite sugary notes. Flavour is similar. A bit too sugary, but while it was fridge cold it was atleast refreshing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours apple juice color. Aroma and taste are both apple juice. Good if you’re in the mood for cider.

minutemat (4039) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
355ml bottle @ ALB bar, Shrewsbury. Not sure if this was a seperate entry, as it’s from a bottle, but can’t be bothered entering a new one. Pours fairly clear gold, white bubbly head. Sweet apple aroma. Taste is smooth, slick with a syrupy sweet cider character. Pleasant, easy-drinking. Decent.

czar (7484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
pours hazy very light golden without a head, shy bubbles. dusty melamined apples, mid-sweet and mid-tart apples, pears - slightly perfumey; few but present rotten fruit notes, yeast - not quite champagne as advertised. light carbonation - could be brighter; light body; semi-sweet and very lightly tart fruity finish. nod bad or anything. just an honest entry level cider.

Rated based on notes taken 10 Jun 2012 -- Eh, it’s a cider. It’s well made. Not as good as my home brewed stuff though!
