StevieT's rating

2.1
StevieT (1997) - - DEC 14, 2013
Not much of an aroma, they put a lemon wedge in it which is rarely a good sign. Dry as the name suggests, thin and average at best.

LazyPyro (1126) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
06/08/2016 - from cider ratings backlog.
330ml bottle @ 5%, brewed by Konings NV, Belgium. Clear pale golden colour with a fizzy white head dissipating quickly. Aroma is fairly mild apples, mild sweetness. Taste is the same, fresh apples and some sweetness, dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.

2.6
Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle at 6% consumed in Windhoek. It pours clear yellow - gold with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet, sticky apple juice from concentrate, candy and white sugar. The taste is initially crisp, touch of fruity tartness, sweet apple, apple pie, apple tango and some white sugar. Finish is dryish. Medium body and average, fizzy carbonation. Not a huge amount to it, but it snot that bade really. Alcoholic apple juice.

3.2
alexmate (173) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Pale gold colour. Nice taste of green apples, pears and lime blossom. On the dry side, but maybe more medium dry. Recommended to the usual gnat’s piss like Magners.

2.9
Grumbo (2848) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle from the Savanna (South African shop) at Liverpool Street Station. Pours pale gold with a large but short lasting white head. Aroma of light apple, also seemed a touch of honey. Medium sweetness, very light sour edge. Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation after the initial fizz quickly dies down. Better than most mainstream ciders available in U.K. Finish is slightly dry and quite sweet.

3.2
dfearnley (2070) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
This is getting hammered in RB, and I’m not hammered, but this is okay by me. Yeah, it’s not Schrams, but it’s a nice light aperatif. Slightly sour, light apple, and perhaps too much sugar.

2.3
schnubbie (50) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 23, 2017
Nice yellow color with a lot of bubbles but the carb is low. Light apple taste and slightly sour.

3
Koelschtrinker (20229) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Eher wässriger Antrunk nach roten Äpfeln. Sehr süffig, ausgewogen süß-säuerlich. Spritzig, wässrige Ähnlichkeiten zu Weißwein. Nett. 8/9/9/10/10/9

3.4
androman (2291) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle at work. Medium sweet, light sour, slightly sugary. Finish is short light sweet. Easy, tasty.

2.9
martin00sr (4008) - Haderslev, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2017
Clear yellow, fizzy head, sparkling. Nice apple aroma. Flavour is sweetish, has a little sourness. Slightly watery. Carb is lower than expected which is nice.

2.9

0,33l bottle from marktkauf/edeka. pours a very pale clear golden with a small head and even some lacing. aroma of champagne, sweetish apples. flavour of pears, white wine, cinnamon. not quite dry, with a hint of sweetness towards the finish.
