1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Mini bottle (50 ml) bought at the cidery. Clear amber/golden leaving little legs. Aroma is boozy and of caramel, spices and carboard. Taste is hot, not too sweet but boozy and cardboard forward along mild acidity, caramel, moderate spiciness and apples. Medium body. Liquorous mouthfeel. Burning finish. Among the worst apple products I have ever had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An orange cider with a very pure apple aroma. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of apples, but also with so strong an alcohol presence that it burns the throat. The mouthfeel is like drinking the sugar water used to preserve pears. Too strong for my liking.

Still, golden. Very powder sugar sweet, slightly floral, heavily alcoholic. Oldish apple taste, more alcohol flavors throughout, direct mcintosh, not overwhelming. You can separate alcohol parts from the rest. Syrupy, extremely sweet medium body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
07.10.05 Bottle, RBSG tour. Pale golden. Aroma is riesling and very concentrated apple juice laced with vodka. Strong alcoholic kick. A bit over the top, tends toward cloying, even in this tiny sample.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Alcohol is quite apparent in both aroma and flavour with buttery, brown sugar, sweet and tart apples. Clear deep golden body with nice legs on the glass. Warming in the throat. Alcohol perhaps too apparent but this may be a nice one to lay down for a year or two. Sampled at the orchard tasting room at RBSG’05.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a pale yellow golden color. Light apple and pear aroma has a nice sweetness and a touch of alcohol. Body is full, thick and sweet, but also powerfully alcoholic toward the finish. Nice warming fruit complexity throughout, but the alcohol is a touch too much.
