2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
550 ml bottle from the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served a bit above fridge temperature from a 550 ml Sam Smith’s glass. Bubbly, huge white head fizzes away quickly above the roiling, fizzy pale gold and very clear body....dusty, dry, rather tart and somewhat musty/rotten apple aroma, not terribly pleasant, somewhat weak, though real enough I suppose.....definitely more pleasant on the tongue than in the nose, moderately sweet but full of apple rather than sucrose flavor, juicy and pretty full-bodied, with carbonation a little softer and less forced-feeling than the appearance suggests....nothing amazing in the character here, but perfectly drinkable, reasonably balanced in the dry/sweet axis....that’s about it.
Sampled from 0.55 l bottle from ’EDEKA Preller’ (Breckerfeld), best before April 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, fluffy, quickly diminishing, white layer. Sourish-fruity, woody aroma of ripe apples and some wood. Slightly sweetish, moderately sour, quite fruity and slightly woody taste of ripe apples, some pear and light wood, followed by a short, rather dry, slightly tart finish. Thin body, slightly astringent and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Tasty! mR_fr0g (13226) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle at the horse and groom. A crystal clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is tangy apple, bile, rubber, little wood. Flavour is composed of semi sweet and tangy apple, honey dew, crisp apple hints of acid. Palate is semi sweet tangy, moderate frorhy carbonation. Ok cider.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Im Sommer sehr erfrischend, aber nichts für Biertrinker. Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2017
A bright golden color. Aroma contains some red apple peels and honey. The flavor is slightly sweet and dry with some red apples and sugar. Overall some nice flavors going on but a little thin on the palate and maybe a bit on the sweet side. EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2017
Bottle in The Glasshouse Stores. Memorable place for me as I once dumped a girlfriend in here that I had a mega crush on. She was just too nuts. Pale Amber, no head. Nose is sweet white apple and oxidised brown apple, white apple vinegar, not much dryness. Taste is light, sweet, white apple, no tannins. Simple, light, little watery but refreshing.

Bottle. It poured a clear pale yellow with virtually no head. The aroma was Green apple and the flavor was the same. It had a watery mouth feel. Overall, OK. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017

Bottle from bierlinie. Pours clear golden. Nose is natural Apple. Taste is dry, apple, sweet. Finish is is short, fruity. Best cider i have tried yet, but this isn’t saying much. tfontana (1089) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is apple, champagne. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with nice sparkle, minimal white fizzy head. Taste is balance of light sweet and tart. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, initial burst of fizzy carbonation but then soft, and dry finish. Overall, a nice, light change of pace from beer.
