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.

marcus (6705) - 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.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods - Short Pump on 10/31/2010. Cloudy dark amber body with a medium fizzy tan head. Huge molassas and brown sugar aroma with some light apple and caramel notes. Sweet molassas flavor, some brown sugar, caramel, light apples, slight nuttiness and a touch of astringency. Medium full body with moderate carbonation.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of Swalden28) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a spare white head. Aroma of honey, molasses, butterscotch, apple, and butter. Flavor of baked apple, butter, honey, and molasses with a somewhat dry finish.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a murky brown with small, fastly fading fizzy head. Aroma of over ripe apple, petro, burnt molasses. Flavor is the same with a light sweetness and bold flavors, small tobacco notes and burnt butter. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, I am kind of up in the air about this one, interesting and worth a try.

Not pleasant. You can smell that stout yeast but then it tastes like sweet rubber. After the first taste, the aroma was messed up and smelled as hot rubber also. Maybe this is typical but definitely not for me. Flat.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2011
(22oz bottle courtesy of dionysusu!). Pours hazy caramel color. Aroma of cooked apples and molasses. Taste is sweet with a maltiness from the molasses. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Smooth. Thanks Walter!

popery (1451) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Not terrible, but I wouldn’t really want another. Lots of maple syrup sweetness. A bit sticky. A bit low on carbonation. The sour green apple flavor is nice, but I think it’d be tastier without the syrup. Tannin-ish bitterness. It’s just too sweet and maple-y. It’s nteresting but doesn’t really work for me.

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazed apple cider brown reddish color with a very minimal head of tan that collars around the glass. The aroma is somewhat peculiar with a base of apple but then another aroma of grape and almost candy. Medium mouthfeel. Apple flavors in the flavor and less sweet than some of their other varieties. Fairly cheap so it fits the bill if you are looking for an afordable sweet treat. I’d probably prefer a mead though.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2011
22 oz bottle. Slight smell of apple, with natural musty smell. Cloudy, brownish yellow in appearance. Tastes like an apple that is overripe and starting to turn brown. It lacks the fresh crisp flavors that I enjoy in ciders. Flat, syrupy mouth feel. Although unique, would not drink again.

JohnMan (102) - Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2011
This was an interesting cider. There’s some apple floral flavors mixed with a slight roasty malt. Not my type of flavors.
