harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2006
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Well what a strange day when the best thing that I drink is in fact a cider. What has happened to me? Hazy gold/green colour with disppearing white head. Apple juice aroma with a bit of rubber. Very drinkable. Very dry on end. Apples throughout are good. Bit of herb or apple blossom on aroma and finish. Not much puckering of gums but tongue is left dry as a bone. I liked it.
