tomxcs (320) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 14, 2006
500mL bottle, purchased at Whole Foods in Madison ($6). Poured bright gold with a soapy thin head; low-moderate carbonation. Nice apple aroma, some grassy & lightly funky aromas as well. Sweet-dry, light sour funkiness in flavor, herbal. Dries out at the end, but not to the extent of some ciders, as it still leaves sweetness. Nothing special, but I always like trying whatever ciders I can get my hands on.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Pale golden cider with a green tint. Aroma of faint freshly pressed apples. Taste is dry tart apple with some pulp and a little wet wood. Decent.

danlo (895) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear yellow gold colour, foam white head that dissipates away and aroma of sourish apple & slight barnyard. Sweetish apple flavour with some tartness and tannins. Light to medium body, low carbonation, dry bittersweet finish. Quite OK.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Draft at Alla Spina - sample. Pours a clean light gold with thin, quickly dissipating white head. Nose of apple, citrus. Medium body. Light carbonation with a pretty dry finish. Not bad for a cider.

maneliquor (2781) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
A bit weird. Kind of like a half white wine half cider. Very vinous with vibrant apples. Like Sauv and sparkling apple juice. Solid

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear light blond colour, not much head. Aroma is bit weird, bread, touch of apples, quite boozy. Taste is similar, apple and booze, bit of minerals, bit of plastic. Spritzy. Should probably have some nicer cider.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2013
bought mostly for the funky bottle and I wanted to try some real english cider. clear and golden color. Aroma was a lot more funky tart than i expected. Mkaes me wonder what yeast is used in this. Taste is mildly sweet with a touch of pummis or sulfer. Tartness on the finish.

Martin243 (689) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Small tulip at home, served cold. Pale white wine colour, gentle carbonation. Apple and gooseberry flavour, with a bit of tart bitterness. However, once again, I found the palate of an Aspall’s cider dull and insipid. Won’t buy again.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 05/04/13. Clear pale blonde with no head, very little in the way of colouration. Nose carries fresh apple notes allied to light sugars. Taste comprises apples, light sugars, straw. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, clean crisp finish. Ok cider.
