Nose: Quite a spirity nose upon first pour, which blows off after 30 seconds or so, to reveal toffee apples and caramel along with an unexpected note of tart lemons.
Palate: Tastes just like apple juice in flavour – the only clue that it’s not a soft drink is the slight warming sensation on the back palate, its so soft and smooth on the palate it really could be otherwise. As much as I could wax lyrical about the taste, there aren’t really any other flavours than can be picked out – it just does what it says on the bottle!
Finish: A longer finish than may be expected, with the apple flavour lasting for a good 20 seconds or so. Smooth and fruity, this glides over the tongue and is quite moreish.
Comment: A delicious introduction to the world of liqueurs, this is just so easy drinking and deliciously fruity with no sign of any harsh finish that some liqueurs are known to possess.

this may be the best drink ever but it is NOT the original one that my parents used to get from germany. i bought this for a christmas present and after only few hours in the freezer it was rock solid. my mum said they used to keep it in freezer for days in germany and it never froze. also after tasting it my dad said this one tasted more fruitier and sweeter than the original

Spent 14 years based in various places in Germany and this is the echte apfelkorn, I have found its best kept in the freezer then when you get it out it sticks to your hand .... shame !!!!

I agree it should be tasted straight from the freezer, first introduced to Apfelkorn 17 years ago, so am very happy I've at long last found a UK supplier!

I love this. I am another one of the forces (if only a mere 'wife of' as referred to back them) who first tried this in Germany many, many years ago.
