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.

bottle. muddy brownish with no head. aroma is similar to champagne with a molasses note. flavor has a definite sweet caramel molasses note with bruised red apples. lingering black licorice in the finish. i’m not too familiar with ciders but this is a different one for sure. i really enjoyed it.

Murky brown. Lively. Aroma of brown sugar, apple, and cinnamon. Flavor of sugary apple sauce, cinnamon and some danish. Very dessert-like. But just too sweet.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
medium reddish brown with quickly disappearing white head. nose of molasses and apples. medium carbonation for style with molasses hints providing a nice nearly smokey depth before crisp dry apple flavor. the musky flavor of irish ale yeast comes through and the finish is somewhat full for a cider. overall a nice sweeter cider and enjoyable

arondee (563) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with little to no head and light carbonation. Aromas are molasses and apples. The taste is thick unsweetened molasses and slightly sweet cider. This cider was pretty foul in my opinion.

Absolutley no redeeming qualities on this cider. I have liked a lot of Crispin stuff in the past, but this one was a drainpour. Over the top sweetness with a very strange yeast character.

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Very cloudy brown color, if you follow instructions to "tilt and swirl". Almost no head. Molasses sweetness hid much of apple aroma and taste. Nothing special in ciders, and below the enjoyment of most beers.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle courtesy Swalden28. Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a small fizz of carbonation. Aroma is a bit strange. There is a sharp aroma of gasoline right off the bat with a latent fruit aroma. The chemical notes are almost overpowering. Flavor is sharp spice, like in a pie with molasses and honey flavors. It also has a bit of a buttery mouthfeel. Im guessing the fusel aroma is a mix of the sharp spices, alcohol and underlying fruit. Strange indeed.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Pours murky brown and orange with no head and an apple and malt aroma. There is a butterscotch and apple flavor with a slight alcohol bite. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
