Bottle, bought @ HJ Hansen, Odense.
Clear yellow with a fast disappearing head. Aroma is sweet, some green apples, a peppery ginger note and some mild oak. Highish carbonation, a bit thin palate. Flavour is softly zesty tart, green apple, some oak, dry, elegant. Mild sweetness. Still relatively boring overall.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
Orangey colour. Slight haze. Loose bubbly head. Not very sparkling - just a light prickle. Fruity aroma with a slight "rotten" edge (not in a bad way). Sweetish on the palate with lots of fruit remaining even though this bottle was a few years old. Modest tannins hold things together so it doesn’t too sticky. Pleasant easy drinking stuff if not the most challenging cider.
