Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. "2010 Vintage" replaced by "English". Pours orange tinged gold with no head. Aroma is apple skin with something suggesting treacle. Med body or nearly. Flavor is apple skin and a hint of brown sugar or treacle. Itís sweet but seems dry. Make that apple skin astringent. Interesting stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a sour aroma about it which is why I have given it a higher rating. Not a sweeter cider but if you like a cider, try it.
