3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a still deep yellow with clarity. has a great aroma which yields both sweaty orchard notes and a mouthwatering tartness. there’s a pinch of strawberry in there, too. first sensation is a mild acidity which coats the palate, followed by a nice tannic sensation which does not travel in to the overly astringent. vanilla notes are there, a sprinkle of spice, apple cobbler! i understand that the cider is still to accentuate the flavors, but overall a thinness exists which is the main negative here. enjoyable albeit a little overpriced for what it is.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from the beer authority. Different bottle style than shown, capped rather than corked. Label reads "dungeness still, hard cider" and claims a blend of over 200 varieties.
Pours with quite a bit of sparkle; this one is actually a ways from still. Light gold, quite clear at least at the top of the bottle, catches the light beautifully. Wonderful apple nose, no fermentation off-products. Tons of apple flavor yet it’s quite dry, with white wine notes. Delicious stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled at Alpenfire, pours a clear blonde with a few bubbles. Aroma brings out some light funk, some champagne yeast and medium dry apples. Flavour is quite wild and funky, with barnyard funk, dry apples, and puckering dry wheatiness. Low residual sugar. Quite complex. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Funky nose and light green apple. Clear light gold. Funky, light and a light dry finish. Nice and easy drinking.
