handpull @ some random prince of wales in putney. Smells of mould, chemicals and a bit of apple. hazy golden colour, small white head with a bit of lace. Quite tart in flavour, very woody, strong vanilla notes, cider apples. Quite light and watery. very long bitter finish.

Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Fresh, tart apple aroma. Hazy peach juice color with some white head. Near medium in body with medium, firm carbonation. Flavors of apple and appleskin - hardly any "cooked" aspect. Quite refreshing.

Half pint on draft at Queens Arms in Kensington, London. I had this directly after trying Apple Bocq. This beer pours a body which contrasts to the previous beer mentioned. It is clear, yellow, and there is barely any head. The aroma is apple, and notes of wine - or whatever you want to label that as. The flavor however is slightly better than Apple Bocq because it is smoother, and not as overtly sweet. Good cider.

I can only assume that this is the bottled form of the draught stuff that i sell in the pub, though they are the same % and taste the same and when iv asked admins about it, iv had no reply. Lightly sparkling, cloudier in a whiter kind of muddtness than the more yellow looking draught stuff. Aroma is tarts, sulphur, yeast. Taste is similar, quite drinkable if unexciting.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 As its name would suggest, it’s a cloudy yellow colour with minimal carbonation and no head. Subdued, yet sweet apple aromas. The flavour is light and quite... well... appley with medium acidity. Smooth and dryish finish. Goes down well.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow with a very lively body (carbonation streaming up). Lovely semi-dry apple, mildly tart, with an attractive woody note. Finishes with a hint of champagne. Fizzy, sticky finish. It isn’t a great UK cider, but it far trumps most or all American cider. (on tap, Babbity Bowser, Glasgow)
