polaxis (73) - - MAR 1, 2014
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a quickly diminishing and lacing white head. Mild apple aroma with a hint of alcohol. Sweet apple flavour with a lot of sugarish notes following. Light acidic to citric touch before the finish. Medium sweet finish. One of the best ciders you can get in Switzerland.

fdomig (1015) - München, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2017
1 pint at the Turks Head, Dublin. Aroma is apple, light yeast. Appearance is clear golden with no head. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Medium carbonation. Good.

Hermod (7844) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2017
50cl bottle from local store. 4,5% Poured light golden in color with a thick bubbly white head. mild funky notes and ripe apples in aroma. good enough, but why all the adjuncts? Flavor has ripe apples, sweetness, artificial notes, even more sweetness. The apples get lost in the sweetness.

568ml bottle. Clear golden colour, minimal head. Ripe apples, light-medium sweet, slightly sugary. Light body, lively carbonation.

Senap (736) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Förvånansvärt rödbrun. Mycket mustig smak. Snarare söt än torr. Lättdrucken sällskapsdryck.

MarcoBasile (417) - DENMARK - MAY 31, 2017
Classic apple cider aroma. Sweet red apples with a candy quality. Pours crystal clear and golden in the glass with medium to high carbonation. Small quickly dissipating head. The taste is fruity and sweet. Simple as that. Little sugary but not sticky. Tasty simple refreshment.

thin applejuice with a bit of sparkling water. It needs the icecubes to be bearable to drink.It has no use being on this site as it is cider.

Zlotta (3272) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2017
Sampled from 0.5 l bottle, best before January 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly sourish and moderately fruity aroma of green apples, pear and some straw. Sweetish, slightly sourish, moderately fruity taste of green apples, sparkling wine and some pear, followed by a short, sweetish, slightly tart and a bit dry finish. Thin to medium body, a bit astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay!

dunklermessias (205) - Lüneburg, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2017
0,568 L Bottle. Pours with golden color and absolute no head. Nose and taste are prettey much the same: sweet apples and pears. Low body, but refreshing.

Block (2722) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Light pour, very sweet, somewhat tart. Apples throughout as expected. No body. Lots of sugar.

Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 28, 2017
Eher süßer Beginn mit Noten von Apfel und Birne. Etwas süßer werdend, süffig, mild würzig. Geringe Trockenheit, monoton. Okay. 7/8/8/7/8/8
