UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)shoestring (427) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Nice pale orange, quite spritzy carbonation. Lovely dry cider aroma, has some hints of juicy fruitiness, but there’s a sharp acidic spike that’s really clear - some almost acetone-like hints, and old wooden school desks. Spritzy in the mouth, a little watery, but refreshing. More dry apple, bitter skins, again back to the school desks. Finish leaves apple skin dryness and bite. Very nice filtered cider, so full of real apple, but dryness very nice too. (I’d say it was heading towards medium dry rather than dry.)
Rerate: Gave it a couple of extra points, really enjoyed it. Perfect balance between sweet, fruity, sharp, and dry. More please!
Basically, its apple juice with a light booze kick. - kind of sums it up. slight fizz. not great, not awful -forgetful but I owuld have again just to rerate in future Marduk (8368) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Tiny to almost no head. Dry, apples, yeasty, faint leather aroma. Dry, watery, ice, apples in taste. Quite unusual palate. In a weird way I like it. Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014

Bottle from Morrisons. Golden amber cider, lightly sparkling. Aroma of ripe apples. Taste is pressed apples, some tartness and a little dry with a touch of wood. Decent.

Bottle shared with G on cider blind taste test night. Quite a traditional cider nose. Golden colour and slightly sparkling. Quite a dry taste and leaves a slightly dry mouth, but overall enjoyable. gegwilson (3793) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle shared with Pix on cider blind taste test night. Golden amber colour. A hint of oak in the aroma along with the expected apples. Same with the taste. Quite a dry cider, especially on the finish. Pleasantly sparkling, but a touch watery. olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
500ml bottle. pours the same colour as in the photo - piss yellow. quite fizzy, and dry. lots of apple both in aroma in taste. more into sweet cider/perry but refreshing nonetheless. danlo (3232) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Golden colour, foam white head that quickly dissipates and aroma of sourish apple. Taste is fruity apple with some tartness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry finish. Quite OK. wlajwl (7063) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Aroma is apples, mild sweetness and tartness. The flavor is apples, mild sweetness and a mild off character into the finish.
