JStax (6509) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Lours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is straight apple juice. Not much else going on here. Tastes like apple juice and Cheerios. Drying sweet finish. Not bad necessarily, but not really something Id want to drink again.

Marduk (7707) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 26, 2017
330ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Small size, brief white head, stays. Sweet, caramel, straw in aroma. Very sweet, caramel, apple seeds in taste. Sweet and apple seeds in aftertaste. Almost no carbonation. Average brew.

2.7
Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2017
Keg at Lochter Fest. It pours clear yellow - green with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is soft, sweetish, earthy, wood, apple pie, pear, floral and tangy action. The taste is pretty sweet, mellow, apple juice, apple pie, marzipan, light florals, pear and a hint of tartness & tannins. Bitter - sweet finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Overall it’s a bit too sweet and sugary. Fair.

rumore (538) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 10, 2016
From bottle. Pours canary yellow with practically no foam. Aroma is sweet, obviously apple (not green apple). Body is medium, with some stickiness. Taste is very sweet. Finish is fortunately short enough.

sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Clear, bright golden yellow. Small head. *** Nose: Ripe apples, a hint of herbs. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, not watery at all. Soft carbonation. *** Taste: Sweet red apples, some vinegar, but overall really sweet and fruity at the start. Sweet and sour middle and finish, still very apple-y. Aftertaste of red apples, with a hint of vinegar. *** Impressions: The sweetest cider I’ve tried yet, but with enough vinegar balance to prevent it from being cloying. Extremely fruity, so I’d recommend this to cider lovers who put sweet apples front and center.

drpimento (3641) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Average appearance. Overripe apple aroma with hints of solvents. Flavor isn’t bad. Not too sweet, just solid workaday cider. Good body. Ok finish.

3.1
ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Box @ Leeds Station Wetherspoon, Leeds. Clear yellow coloured cider. Slightly dry, but always crisp, with an interesting spirit-like apple fruitiness.

danlo (3067) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2016
BIAB at William Stead JDW Darlington. Yellow gold colour, bubbly white foam head and juicy apple aroma. Taste is fruity apple, mellow juicy, sugary sweet with some slight apple skin. Medium bodied, low carbonation, dryish and residual sweet at the finish. Quite OK.

leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Box, The Highcross, Leicester. Straw gold and still. Sweet apple pulp with icing sugar. Lightly dry finish. Not too complicated but quite tasty.

2.6
allmyvinyl (10629) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2016
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear pale gold with a short-lived thin white head. Aromas are a little plasticky, apples, some sour funkiness. Taste is sweet apples. Thin, astringent dry finish.

3.3
wlajwl (6814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Aroma is apples, band-aid and fruit. The flavor is apples/apple juice, fruit, a hint of tobacco, mild dark fruit and a sweetish/tart finish.
