IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle. Pour was medium to light golden with a light apple aroma. Body was light with a mostly dry, but somewhat sweet character. Tasted like there was just a little sugar addition, for the alcohol content was 8.2%. The apple flavors were quite nice, not being too tart, sour, or sweet, however the alcohol was a bit strong. Decent.

Clear golden color with no head. Lots of green apples in both flavor and aroma. Also some faint oak. Solid stuff. Average carbonation level and a pleasant acidity. Tasty cider.
[Bottle from a gas station deep into Norfolk, England]

Thnx to Thomas. Pours clear, very light blonde. Smell is weak, Taste is sharp, tad dry, mild sugary, yet not very sweet . Mild woody notes ( some very hidden vanilla ) Alright. perhaps I had too high expectations ?

Nice drop. Nothing that amazing for me though. Refreshing to drink and doesn't taste like 8.2% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dry taste of apples. Has a chalky floury aftertaste similar to biting into a cooking apple as well as what I think is vanilla. Fairly mediocre, I only tried a sampler so may need to give a whole bottle a go, needless to say first impressions weren’t impressive.

I really enjoyed this cider, nice taste and not too gassy. Unfortunately, it is way too strong (8.2%) and it quickly results in a bad head. Shame it isn’t a standard 5% like the nicer Angry Orchard.

TedE (1391) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2017
500ml bottle into glass. Pale green/yellow cider with no head and medium carbonation. Nose is nice, tart apples and caramel. Oily texture, full bodied. Viscous and tart in the mouth, finish is dry with some woodiness. Late taste of apple cores and alcohol. Adult cider, nice enough but a little unbalanced.

Bottle after RB sumer gathering, tallinn. Served with ice. Don’t care about Aroma. Goes down well. I am alive.

15/08/2016 - from cider ratings backlog.
500ml bottle, 2015 vintage. Crystal clear golden colour, no head. Very nice appley aroma. Taste of medium sweet apples, slightly tart, some bitterness, hint of oak. Alcohol is noticeable but considering the ABV it’s fairly well hidden. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Nice but if I’m drinking cider I don’t usually go for something of this strength.
