COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
xtra Stout Bodied. Naturally fermented using a premium blend of fresh pressed apple juice, not from concentrate, and fermented with Irish stout ale yeast, Lansdowne is a rich brown color, it shows a slight hint of butterscotch, balanced by a subtle fruitiness and a slightly dry crisp finish with a uniquely full and buttery mouth feel. Lansdowne never strays off-sides and is uncorrupted by added malt, spirit or grape alcohols, and is free of colorants, sorbate and benzoate preservatives.

From a bottle poured a dark amber/brown color with no head. Malty slightly sweet flavor with a quick finish.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle… Clear dirty-orange cider with a quickly dissipating, bubbly head. There is more stout and molasses than apple character in the aroma – hearty and earthy with a note of beef bouillon. Medium-bodied with buzzing carbonation. The flavor is an entertaining marriage of sweet apples, sorghum molasses, dry stout and malic acid. Finishes crisp and refreshing with a hint of molasses. Crazy interesting!

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2012
An amazingly rich chestnut colour. A sweet and beery aroma. Holy crud this is bizarre. It’s like a beef stock with an apple floating in it. Dry and bitter with a real earthy depth. That is a full on stout yeast. It’s just got guinness written all over it. There is an underlying cherry fruitiness but dang this is leathery. This is what I imagine tongue tastes like.

mar (4664) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Deep brown with a few bubbles. Maple syrup, light apple, and sticky. Easy on the palate, heavy maple flavor, not enough apple, light finish.

jzzbassman (1466) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours hazy dark gold with a wispy head. Smells like straight up fresh apple juice. Flavor is fruity and sweet, finishes dry with low carbonation.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - JAN 2, 2012
interesting cider here. aroma is more scotch ale than anything else, with molasses and caramel and malt. flavor is an interesting mix of cider and burnt sugar. almost beer-like, doesn’t have the bright cider freshness that other crispins have, but it’s tasty, and it grows on you.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Dark amber color with a small white head. I get a lot of apples, as well as some grape and a little bit of molasses. The apple notes in the flavor are complimented by molasses, charred oak and a little bit of maple. The alcohol is very apparent and the cider is a little bit boozy. Very dry.

degbert (1007) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours a very dark gold-brown with no head or visible carbonation. Nose is dry, but with definite molasses elements; very little malic sharpness. Dry on the tongue as well, with notes of nutmeg and molasses woven into a dry cider similar to an Asturian cider. Mouthfeel is round and creamy. Fascinating.

madvike (2588) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours rosy brown with a thin light tan head. Sweet red grapes on the nose, with sugary sweetness, and some light apple. Has some astringency in there as well. Taste has more apple, with some rubbing alcohol sharpness and a caramel/brown sugary sweet finish. Medium body and pretty smooth, but overall too sugary for my tastes.
