ClarkVV (4160) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2009
2008 bottle drunk January 2009 with approx. 4-6 months age on it.
After the delightful tartness of the dry cider from Aspall, I was very curious to try this guy. Similar in appearance, with, perhaps, a bit more amber color to it and equally carbonated. More mushy, red apple-like sweetness is apparent in the nose, with some musty, though I wouldnt quite say tart, notes on the end. A definite woodiness, like wet/damp sawdust is noteable in both these ciders, leading me to believe it must be a house character and not an unenjoyable one at that.
Cleaner, more straightforward in the mouth, with simple juicy sweetness and a less staying tartness/acidity on the finish. Some light alcohol creeps in to the finish and as the carbonation softens, it gets rather "mushy" and probably a little too lifelessly sweet. Good enough though, and the wild yeast/musty house character is a nice touch.

slowrunner77 (6920) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2015
average cider across the board - was hoping for more at nearly $9. golden pour, standard apple aroma and flavor. Nothing bad at all, but I can get this level of cider anywhere for a buck.

Shared bottle. Clear golden/ straw like, sparkling. Lambic like aroma, vinous, leather, grassy, soury with touch of apples. Taste of apple peel, medium sweet, leather. Medium to full body. Pretty much drinkable.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
I think that great looking bottle promises more than the cider delivers. Nice touch of green apples, some earthy moments and a good background with that high abv. But this cider comes a bit unbalanced and slightly watery. Still not a bad brew.

McTapps (5554) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear golden colour with a medium to smooth body. Aroma of ripe apples and leaves. Taste of ripe red apples, mild pears, leaves and poak. Flowery finish. Nice one.

Light yellow cider. Light apple vinegar aroma. Dry and light taste. Grows a little in the after taste. Quite bland.

Tsekouratos (463) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUL 3, 2014
Watery yellow color, clear as hell. Aromas of green apple. Taste of apple and white whine. What else? Ah yeah, apple. No aftertaste really. Light body with low carbonation. Not my thing.

Clear, pale straw colour. Refreshing apples with a touch of sweathy gym socks and berries in aroma. Fine and refreshing taste. Fine aftertaste. Good drinkability.
