apickles (89) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond beer festival. Interesting palate with a liquorish finish which isn’t unpleasant. Quite fruity in flavour and fairly sweet.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2011
Cask@Helsinki Beer Festival 2011. Amber colour, small head. Aroma is blue cheese, spices, some tart and sweet apples as well as some vanilla. Flavour is leathery, sweet and tart apples as well as mild cheesy and yeasty notes. Pleasantly mouthdrying and also quite complex.

downender (5907) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
On cask at the Bank, Bristol, 21/08/10. Amber with a trace of carbonation. Sweet cider, with some honeyed fruit and a medium dry finish. Very drinkable for the ABV, but perhaps lacking some character.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2010
Cask, Newark Winter Fest 10. Golden and still. Aromas are apple juice with earthy light woodiness and icing sugar. Flavours are very sweet apple juice with sweet icing sugar. Considerable alcohol. Nearly too sweet.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2009
Cask at O’Hara’s, Tampere, 7.5 %. Copper color, no head. The aromas of overripe apple, orange marmelade and chardonnay. Cloying sweet juicy flavor with orange and chardonnay wine. Stingy alcohol sharpness. Cloying sweetness and sharp alcohol make this really hard to drink.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
Polypin at Banbury Beer Festival 08-05-08 Pours a stunning reddy orange colour with great clarity. I found this to be very sweet (supposed to be dry!) admittedly there was a slight dryness towards the end. I cannot get away from a sacchriney artificial sweetness unfortunately, tastes powdery in the mouth, not my thing apples are very much bit players here, and yet I’m almost on my own with my views (poured the last third away) this stuff appears to be very popular.

FatPhil (8556) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Doesn’t taste its strength. Really big on the apple front. Which is good for a cider. But it’s not a beer.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Beer House, Manchester 18/11/2001 Copper coloured and slightly sweet on the palate. Dry woody flavoured finish.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2004
Currently available from The Alex in Derby, from the barrel down in the Cellar. This is a strong traditional Cider that belies it’s strength. Dark Orange & not cloudy in appearance it is perhaps a little to sweet for me. Smells & tasted very "fresh" defiantly worth a few swift halves

CidreMonstre (19) - Cambridge, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2004
A very pleasant medium sweet cider, single varietal. Fruity in both aroma and flavour, the alcohol is not that apparent. Available in draught only to my knowledge. The reason that most British ciders stop at 8.4 % is that they are charged at Wine duty above that and this is a large step.
