330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.
Clear light golden colour; Near zero head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with notable slight carbonation; Fragrant aroma of apple wine, with apple flesh and peels, yoghurt tartness, hint of Balsamic vinegar, strong wood barrels, light sugar and tannin; Mid to light sweet taste of strong apple wine, with strong alcohol, liquorices, fair yoghurt tartness, light sugar and tannin; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is dry apple wine, boozy but not screaming, close to a Scrumpy. Very dry, with good non-juice apple taste accompanied by moderate swetness. Liqruorices and tannin for a fmid- astringent finish. Nice stuff!... Dry after taste. Boozy and fruity to mouth.
Comments: Not very often a Scrumpy-like cider can accomodate dryness, booziness and right amount of sweetness. This is one of them - appealing fleshy aroma, dry winey palate with strong booze, controlled sweetness with a bitter finish. A nice example of a good strong cider. A gem!
Very nice cider, but not as dry as I was expecting it to be. Pale straw colour. Enjoyable. EmanuelBonn (4) - - OCT 8, 2017 does not count
I like this cider. Almost like white wine. Only better. It’s slightly sour, but not too much.

Bottle at Full Monty. Clear golden color. Dry apple nose, skin. Light sweetness, dry finish, minerals, pear, apples. Gets very dry in the finish. Nice, but the Vintage was much nicer. PeatyPete (1112) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2017

The Cru is false advertising trying to make it sound artisanal like a high end wine. Instead its a carbonated mess. Clearly added carbonation at that. The cider itself is fine. Overly sweet and fizzy for sure. But goes down easily and has just enough acidity to contrast the sweetness.
Not real cider but its okay. Rasmus40 (21689) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle from Beernavigator. Clear yellow without head. Aroma is dry apples and light sugary. Flavor is quite sweet and slightly acidic. Dry and slightly acidic finish. 270117 kajser27 (1959) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 15, 2017
Clear, yellow colored, watery, no head. Aroma is of apple juice, tart apple. Taste is of apples, some apple juice, moderate tart, some apple peel, medium bitterness, very dry finish. Medium bodied, soft- carbonation. Itstasty (112) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle. Aroma not good, bit of a rotten apple, farty smell. Light golden colour. In the mouth palate is balanced, light green apples, dry but not teeth shattering. Light carbonation. Ok flavour wise, but I’m guessing the ’Cru’ is just advertising nonsense.
