mviljamaa (105) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - APR 20, 2017
Pours with little foam. Carbonation seems intense. Color is lighter than in the Oakwood version. Aroma is similar to Oakwood version, but is fresher. Aroma is dominated by red apple (including peel) and there are some faint notes of cut grass and soap. This does not have the pronounced "caramellized apple", nor does it have the "chemical" aroma that the Oakwood version has. Palate is more balanced than in the Oakwood version. Its a bit oily, but not too overwhelmingly so. Carbonation is nicer, consisting of medium to small bubbles, whereas in the Oakwood version the bubbles were big. Taste is also more balanced than in the Oakwood version. The balance between sweetness and sourness is pretty ok. Taste has again that red apple taste (with peels), but theres definitely some sour green apple as well. Some lemon and lime notes. Some mint even. The taste develops as one drinks more. When the drink is almost gone, I almost start to like this. Slow sips is the key to enjoying this. Its much better than the Oakwood version and this is actually an okay cider. It could benefit from coming at a higher alcohol percentage though. In the 5-6% range. Since at 4.7% it suffers slightly from wateriness.

Can 33 cl. Courtesy of oh6gdx. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Sweet, greasy, perfumy nose. Medium body, very little clean apple flavour. A strange artificial tartness. A wannabe "real" cider - which it is clearly not. 150413
