Pleasant appley nose as expected and pours quite pale and clear. Not sweet, and also not very crisp. Flavours seemed a bit muted.

k0mpsa (2771) - Tuusula, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear light golden color, small white head disappears quickly. Aroma is earthy, sweet apples, some stables. Balanced apple taste, sweet and sour notes, small hint of alcohol but not disturbing.

TimE (5616) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2013
pale golden color. No head whatsoever, the mouth is totally flat with a body slight heavier than apple juice. I am not sure if the cidery intended for the cider to have no carbonation, but certainly it is a disservice to the cider. Lifeless and rather uninteresting.

mikkopen (1143) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear golden colour, tiny head. Sweetish, earthy apple aroma. Flavour of sweetish overripe apple, with some earthy, tart notes in the finish. Quite good.

omhper (24646) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2013
Bottled. Hazy golden. Aroma of ripe, red sweet apples. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeek and medium body. Some earth and slightsmoke, clean red apple flavour. Some apple skin bitterness. Too sweet to be my favourite cider from Gwynt y Ddraig .
