3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Expecting this to be weird, but was actually different. The Apple is there but this is a beer not a cider. As a change I would definitely try another one. The quality of the beer was there in terms of balance of malt and hop and bitterness was appropriate. Mouthfeel was good. Jury is scratching their heads on this one.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL bottle BBE: Oct 2016. Well-chilled. Pours a crystal clear copper or apple-juice coloured body, with small, tight, off-white head with good lacing. Clean, malt-forward aroma of lightly-baked potato, crisps, some citrus and a hint of strawberry. A light sourness on the tongue is overtaken by a heavy, artificial sweetness, with a hint of bitterness on the finish struggling to break through. The body is light, with a smooth texture, low-medium carbonation and an unpleasant, bittersweet finish. As a whole, this doesn’t work for me. It gives the impression of a cheap cider mixed with a bland, uninspiring base ale. Maybe a beer to attract newcomers to the craft, but not one to keep them there.

Bottle @home. Pours hazy golden. Sweet on the nose, apples and general fruitiness. Big apple flavour on the taste but a bit too sweet for me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Quite fruity. And yes you can notice the apple feeling. A mix between beer and cider. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok body and an average carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
50ml bottle from Beerhive, Edinburgh. I didn’t think it was as bad as the overall rating on here seems to suggest. Pretty simple and straightforward, yes, but, unique and refreshing enough - perfect for drinking outside on one of the last nice days of the year. Especially enjoyed the mouthfeel, it was soft but lively, and quenching. Not too ’cidery’ thankfully, either. Applesauce, fairly sweet.
