3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Misted lager gold with a fast vanishing tuft of suds. Big edgy strudel, Chewits and clove-sprinkled aroma; flavour awash with seasonal stewed spiced fruits- largely of the cider-making variety. Dry and sweet with engaging acidity and funk. Am I about to award a battery acid a 4?? A fine, fine beverage and one that could get me into a lot of trouble.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from some organic store for Melissa. Good looking cider thatís for sure. Think musky and dried apples. Then think massive zest. Thatís the cider summed up. Really quite solid to be honest

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at Bruceís in London - many thanks to Josh. Pours clear gold with a few bubbles for a head. Dry apples in the aroma, some musty basement. Medium sweet flavor with nice musty dryness, semi-ripe apples - really tasty. Medium with soft carbonation. Lightly dry and funky to finish, more semi-ripe apples, some moldy hay. Delicious stuff. Super drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Dunkertonís Farm shop. An old favourite, dependably complex, with a dry, dark, lingering, farmyard tannic bite. Always seem to taste the wild warmth of a cider orchard in this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle thanks to Grace. Pours golden amber with some bubbles. Itís got more of the apple sauce thing going on with the nose - the taste confirms this and what is great is that there is not too much sweetness nor too much acidity. Overall, a great cider.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, no foam and quite carbonated. Apple smell and taste, very sweet. Still not sure if I like these ciders, lemonade with alcohol. (Velp, mei 2012)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012-12-31. Dark golden amber body, headless. Very musty aroma, sort of earthy, almost earthy mushroomy quality to it. 6+ Flavour is similar, with a very earthy musty quality to the apple profile. similar to other English ciders. The musty touches linger into the finish. Average bodied palate. Decent, wasnít quite what I was looking for today though. Bottle shared by a friend, my last rating of 2011!
