2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2004 bottle from Sainsburys. Deep orange colour. Toffeish with slight oaky edge. Quite pleasantly off-dry without much acidity but a lot of the character has been removed by whatever processes it has been put through.

75cl bottle from Morrisons. Golden, orange, quite still. Aromas are light apple juice, dry with hints of wood and caramel. Flavours are predominately dry and woody with fairly light apple notes. Dry on the finsh. Alcohol is not very evident (until after a few pints I suspect). Pretty dull.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
75cl bottle from Sainsbury. And frankly I had a problem getting through the bottle. Not that it is horrible. It has an irridescent copper quality to the colour and no head. The aroma has toffee oak and apple. with oak dominating. Mouth feel is slightly sour with more apple juice mixed with toffee and wood. Finish is dry slightly sour but with more wood and definite toffee apple flavours. Not awful but I wouldn’t buy it again

Bottle. Orange colour with only the merest hint of visible carbonation. Aroma of oak and apples. Taste of apples and oak, some sourness, some alcohol in the finish. Off-putting unsatisfying mouthfeel.
