JStax (7307) - 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.

GoufCustom (2253) - HONG KONG - JAN 10, 2018


330 ml bottle bought at Wanderer Cider's booth during the 15th Hong Kong Food Festival in HKCEC, Wanchai.

Clear very pale golden colour; Virtually no head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with barely notable carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of apple wine, with strong yoghurt, apple core, barrel and light sugar; Medium sweet taste of fair juicy apple wine, with light alcohol, yoghurt, light tartness, sugar, and barrel; Light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is thinned scrumpy in a very runny background, with some apple core / mashed apple soaked in sweet booze. some light yoghurt with barrel finish. Easy!... Fairly dry after taste. Light boozy and very easy to mouth.

Comments: So this is the cider base which churned out the dumped-down Traditional and fruity / floral derivatives. A watered scrumpy really, very wet which thinned out its fruity apple character and booze, despite the presence of nice sweetness. Not bad, but too watery for my liking.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2017
330ml bottle (Kaubbamaja, Tallinn) (5:2:5:2:9=2.3)
Sweet aroma, apple juice and starchy wheat flour. Pale, fizzy. Fizzy palate, very sweet tackiness in the mouth. Honey everywhere in the taste. No crispness, no tartness, no wood, no funk, no sophistication, no reason to drink this.

2.4
Marduk (8622) - 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 (16262) - 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.
