Previously AddlestonesPremium Cloudy Cider.

Addlestones is a golden, naturally cloudy cider with rich, bittersweet apple fruit flavours and a smooth, rounded finish. Fermented twice and unfiltered, for a full-bodied flavour and distinctive cloudy finish, our cider is the same as it’s always been – beautifully smooth and delicious to the core.

Miksu (4982) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Draught at Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä. Hazy yellow color, spritzy. The aroma of tart apple and grapefruit. Slightly sweet flavor with tart apple, grapefruit and subdued phenols. Oily and slightly astringent palate. Fairly full body for a cider. Nice drinkable cider, taste could have more depth.

Cask. London. Cloudy orange body with white collar. Reasonably high carbonation with some sweetness. Aroma and flavour reminisant of apple pie!

patrick767 (3672) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2010
draft at Settle Inn in Stirling - Pours cloudy yellow and has a nice tart green apple aroma and flavor. It’s smooth, sweet, and rather enjoyable. It’s not fantastic, but it’s better than many of the hard ciders on the market.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2009
From cask in Edinburgh. Opaque yellow, virtually no head. Tart-acidic apple aroma with a late scent of honey. Taste is both sweet and acidic, very appely. Some yeast and wood notes. Medium body with high carbonation level. Sparkling mouthfeel, yet slick. Rounded, acidic and lightly sweet, fruity ending. A nice one with good drinkability.

downender (6568) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 Cask-conditioned at the Lord Nelson, Topsham, Devon 26/07/09. Cloudy pale brown in colour. Sweetish apple aroma, marred by a whiff of ammonia. Flavour was similar, with some cheesy, stomach bile in the background. Not very nice.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Cask @ University Arms, Sheffield.
Pours cloudy yellow with almost no head. Just a thin film. Aroma has only green apples with a peel-like tartness to it. Prickly carbonation, a bit weak mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly sweet, some oak, green apples and subdued tartness. A bit weak aftertaste. The overall, though, is quite nice and refreshing.
