Chewy and earthy with a rustic quality, and an extra astringency from the tannins.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pale yellow, clear. Aroma is apple and some faint funk, a bit of cheese. Flavor is apple, some woodsy notes, a bit of cheese, and some sour notes. A bit of aspirin springs up oddly on the finish. I rather liked this, but it was quite unusual. Sort of like a cross between a clean American cider and the wild French ciders.

shrubber85 (8998) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2008

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
500ml bottle from Morrisons. Clear pale gold, no head, lots of apple juice on aroma, its how I remember cider tasting when I was still a teen. Very drinkable. Reasonably dry with some sweetish apple juice coming in on finish. Refreshing and drinkable.

scotty (1088) - SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2008
This looks dull and old, even tho ity’s best before Jul 09, the nose is bursting with apples (surprise surprise!) Dry, tart palate, quite tannic and one dimensional , still better than most ciders. I used most of this for cooking, not sure if I’d buy again. Tesco.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2007
This pours a deep golden body, well carbonated, with an initially sopay head that quickly settles down into a ring around the glass. The aroma is sweet apples with a distracting tinge of vinegar to it. Same with the flavor, although it has the added "benefit" of a touch of metallica. Crisp sweet finish. I won’t be repeating this one.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2007
After the last couple of cider tasting "brews", decided I would actually have one. Light golden color with a fizzy off white diminishing head. Woody apple aromas. Some hints of brandy and simple caramel when further sniffed. Quite sweet with a medicinal quality. Hints of cherries, plums and dates. LIghtly scidic in the finish. Lightly astringent as well. An over-ripe apple linger. LIquid seem to coat the mouth at times even with all the effervesence. There are some nice apple flavors at times, but they seem to get displaced or intermingled with some flavors that aren’t quite as pleasent. Slightly better than average.
