500ml bottle - thanks Marduk! (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)Marduk (8068) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
Hazy, fizzy. Not much aroma, some vague apple sweetness, not much more. Dryish yeasty taste, some apple flesh, some skins, quite a harsh cider. Palate a bit fizzy. Not bad, but not quite right either. Needs more signs of slow and careful ageing; this tastes rushed and handle-turny.
500ml bottle. Cloudy orange color. Small size, bubbly head, stays. Sweet, apples, caramel, juicy in aroma. Apples, juicy, bit papery, herbal in taste. Sweet, apples and juicy in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Drinkable brew. suurjuust (3607) - ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2017

Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Keighley. Deep golden-orange coloured cider. There’s only a blast of apple in its flavour, but when it comes it’s quite sweet. It has a dryness otherwise. LazyPyro (1390) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017

500ml bottle. Cloudy dirty orange colour with no head. Aroma and taste of light sweet fermented apples, moderate bitter. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Nice and refreshing but the appearance looked more dirty than ’cloudy’ to me.
500 ml bottle, from Oddbins Aberdeen City. ABV is 5%. Deep golden to orange colour. Only a hint of carbonation. Moderate aroma of cider apples, hints of oak and sulphites. Nice and slightly sweet flavour of cider apples, again with hints of oak and sulphites. Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - JUN 15, 2017
