33cl bottle from Alko.
Poured cola color with a thin off white head.
Sweet candy apples in aroma and flavor. Very sweet actually. Marmalade, sweet apples. mviljamaa (206) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2017
Pours with no head really. Color is dark coca-cola or carbonated coffee. Aroma has fermented apple and alcohol, some maltiness, even whiskey like fermented notes. Not a very special aroma, particularly because the alcohol is so noticeable. Palate is fairly balanced. Taste is an okay combination of sour and sweet. The apple taste is natural and also has the taste of apple peel. Some maltiness in the body that gives the taste some body. Nice amount of warming alcohol. It’s an okay cider, nothing special, but not much to complain about either. Beerhammaren (1836) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2016
.3l on tap @Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours deep dark reddish brown with low tan head. Aroma is green apple, sourish, candy notes and stable. Flavor is mostly same. Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2016
500ml bottle (M/S Star, Gulf of Finland). Clear very dark brown color. Looks like flat Coca-Cola. Sourish, apples, sweet and caramel in aroma. Licorice, apples, sour in taste. Sour and licorice in aftertaste. Some metallic and coppery notes too, later. Well this is just an apple cider with licorice. I can feel tha alcohol, but can’t taste it. Not my thing. minutemat (6252) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
500ml bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Drunk in our hotel in Lapland. Pours cola black. Off-white head. Taste is quite strange. Tastes like a blend of cider and cola with added spice. No information available so maybe it is. Odd.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Seppo!Dermi (1199) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Dark brown color with a small tan head. Weird color for a cider.
Red apples, sweetness and Coke in the aroma.
The flavor is dry apples, some sweetness and Coke.
50 cl, bottled. Pours black with no head. Aroma: Apples, notes of dough. Hints of wood. Taste: Towards sweet, some mild tartness. Mild tones of salmiakki. Palate: Medium body, somewhat dry. Herbal tones in the end. Not bad. jookos (7160) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2015

Tap at HBF 2014, Helsinki. Colour is clear brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, apples and sweetness. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Draught @ HBF ’11. Rated on 08.04.2011
Aroma is slightly sweet with lots of apples and some sugary notes. Flavour is sweetish and slightly sour with lots of apples, some fruit sugar and hints of spices. Quite basic cider, not sure if the colour affecs the flavour or aroma at all. I guess there was hints of licorice but I am not sure if it was just placebo.
