330 ml can as Upcider Kuiva Omena. BB 24/02/15. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Clear watery yellow colour with a small frothy white head.
Sugary sweetness, apple wine, pear and more sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is dry with some chemicals, apple, apple wine and some apple skin tartness. Quite ordinary Finnish so-called-cider.
33 cl can @ Salmisaari as "Kuiva Omena", BBE 31.01.2014. Aroma is rather sweet with pear and fruit sugars. Somewhat leathery palate. Flavour is sweet with apple and pear esthers. Too sweet and a bit artifical too. I was expecting worse though. thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2014
A bottle that was forgotten for 3 years (no, I didn’t try to improve it by cellaring). Pale yellow body, no head. Aroma has green apple peel. Mildly sourish but mostly watery taste of plain apples. Better than oversweetened sugarbombs but still not any good. This is so artificial and watery that it could easily hold up for decades without any developments in the flavour.

Bottle at a local store. Fruity, light and quite fizzy. Too light palate to be interesting... VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013

Fusel. Bubblegum. Candy. Apples. Artificial. Dryness. Simple. Very sweet. Boring. Marko (5597) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 10, 2010
Draught at some random night club in Helsinki. Poured a pale yellow-golden. Sickly sweet apple in the nose. Light apple in the taste, somewhat sweet. Not offensive but little more than juice. FatPhil (15964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2009

Pale yellow, frothy head. Stale aroma, a bit dusty. Taste pretty thin, not particularly fruity at first, quite nasty, but as it warms some esters come through. Very bad cider though, even the pissy lager was better.
Plastic bottle. Very pale yellowish golden colour, not much head. Aroma is apple and lots of cinnamon. Flavour is also apples and cinnamon. Very sugary sweet.
