Hazy, like pineapple juice appearance albeit bit darker in color. retais low head. Aroma of ripe apples, pear and something earthy...carrot?
Palate is nice chewy, medium carbonation and taste a little sweeter than I expected with little of herbal notes like autumn rotting leafs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
September 14, 2014 - at Southwark Tavern - on draught. Cloudy and bubbly, pale orange gold with no head. Nice tart aroma - ripe apple and lemon sourness - background sweet apple; simple. Taste - sweeter, nowhere near the lemon - but okay. Sharp carbonation, moderate acidity, finishes quick with a bit of a dry tingle in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, golden / light amber.
Nose: Initially fresh, slightly sweet apples. But quickly something more cooked and yeasty takes over, even with a hint of burnt rubber.
Taste: Quite fruity and rather dry, with some nice freshness (acidity). There is some bitterness here but it´s so well integrated with the freshness and the fruit that you might not even notice it as such. Medium to medium light body. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste where the fruity taste of fresh apples lingers on for a full minute and more.
Surprisingly appetising and fruity cider from a big producer. The nose appears strange but the fresh and fruity taste and - not least - the long, fruity aftertaste are this cider´s best features!

On tap at the Green Dragon.
Appearance - cloudy golden with a steady flow of bubbles.
Nose - sweet but fresh apples.
Taste - sweet apples verging on pears.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - yeah, felt the need to have another so can’t be bad.

Keg at the Mermaid, Porth, Cornwall on 29/5/2015. Dark and cloudy yellow with a small white head (head? on a cider? wtf?). Baked apple juice with a little straw and garden fence. Medium-dry with just a hint of tartness, just a little roughness round the edges. Quite easy drinking though. Ok cider overall.
