Marduk (8837) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2016
375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Slightly hazy straw color. Tiny size, bubbly off-white head, stays as a ring. Sweet, apples, leather in aroma. Cinnamon, acidic apples, sweetish in taste. Cinnamon and juicy apples in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Feels bit thin.

FatPhil (17513) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2016
375ml bottle (Siidrimaja, Tallinn)
As I pour, there’s lots of fleshy apple bubbling up from the glass. Closer, there’s more apple pie, a bit of cinnamon. Light palate, but a nice sharpness, plenty of skins. Nice sharp finish, but good real apple flesh fruitiness. Extremely drinkable, so full of apples.Good one.

culchiem (4306) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Martins. Yellow with no real head. Aroma is lemon apple. Flavour is dry fruity, a little sweet on a very dry finish.

A beautiful fresh cider with apple filled aroma. Refreshing and not overly sweet so its perfect for Summer evenings.

Dalliance is our favourite cider. Beautiful elegance, shiny apple/pear notes carried on the back of persistent fine beads of Co2. Massively food-friendly.

Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle: Vintage 2012: Served in a shaker: Small white head/lacing. Hazy yellow body. Aromas of apple, wood, yeast, apple skin, dust, hints of other fruit like berries and citrus, flowers, fruits and marzipan. Flavour is tart, apples, light citric and green apples, some yeast, wood, light dry, some yellow fruit, hay and berries. Aftertaste is tart, apple, light dry and some wood and hay tints. Medium carbo, light watery mouthfeel, just a bit more than medium bodied. Nice stuff.

Liamrua (49) - Waterford, IRELAND - DEC 2, 2014
375ml bottle 5.8% from World Wide Wines. Pours cloudy lemon with no carbonation. Ripe apple lemon aroma. There is a stringent dry sour taste to the front with a dry finish balanced with a lemon and sweetness that doesnt leave a dry mouth finish. It has a full bodied mouthfeel with almost no carbonation. Overall it is a full bodied rich tasting cider that is designed for food. Too heavy for drinking on uts own.

Re-rate...Bottle from Cellar Blackrock sometime in 0714
Didn’t seem as quite as good to me this time now I had the chance to have more of it. Does have an excellent aroma and nice crisp apple, but found it rather over dry. 8/4/7/3/14 3.6

Bottle @ EBBC14, Dublin [270614] 8/4/7/4/15 3.8
Light pale yellow, clear, thin white head
Aroma of sweet juicy fresh apple pulp, no tartness, really nice apples
Taste of soft sweet juicy fresh apple, bit tart, dab of juicy lemon
Palate - soft carb, light body, bit stocky. Finish is crisp, with that dab of soft lemon
Overall - Very nice...some great ciders coming out of Ireland
