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.

Bottle from Booths, Media City. Very pale golden coloured cider. Has a fairly full apple aroma and taste, somewhat dry, but not too much. There’s a small tanginess too.

500ml bottle - as "work" @ Koht
Dry apple aroma, pips. A bit dirty from the yeasty astringency. Slightly watery palate, crisp carbonation. A bit too dry and astringent, and fizzy.
