1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml bottle bought at Marketplace by Jason’s in K11, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Preparation: the cider was served hot by heat it up in a pot at 60 - 70 degree Celsius for a few minutes, then poured into a glass tankard to taste)
Looks: Clear pale greenish-yellow colour; explosive three finger head and soapy white froth which last about 2 minutes with excellent sticky lacing.
Aroma: light cooked apple, light cinnamon, faint vanilla and sugar.
Taste: Warm, fairly light sweet cooked apple, light green apple, light cinnamon, strong alcohol and light tannic.
Body: light body, thin and boozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Warm (obviously), very sweet even after heating up with a strong boozy feel as if pure spirit was poured in. Light apple taste, cinnamon is fairly light and vanilla is barely detectable. Some thin tannic in after taste which couldn’t beat the sweetness. Nah!
After Taste: Wet after taste; Very sweet and boozy to mouth.
Comments: I am afraid this one doesn’t work whether uit is served hot or cold: it feels raw, very sweet even warmed, the strong booze is incompatible to the already light apples and thin cinnamon and spices. I can imagine my teeth might melt if served ice cold. No!

Not a bad cider, tastes a bit processed, some winter spice to it and quite warming, but not quite special enough

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
przecietny, aromat owocowy, truskawkowy i lekko limonkowo-cytrusowy. babelki mocno musuja pianki nie ma, typowo orzezwiajacy z nutami przyprawowymi. Dla mnie zdecydowanie za slodkie, ale pasuje do deserow i ciast.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. An almost colorless, clear cider. No head or bubbles. Apples and some spices in the aroma, hints of something brett-like too. The flavor is too sweet, with apples and some spices. Rather thin on the palate, but at least not overcarbonated. Apples, spice notes and some brett hints in the finish. A quite decent Rekorderlig cider. 130222
