AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle at Darts Farm, Topsham, Devon. Appearance - golden with no head and steady bubbles. Nose - autumnal, dried leaves and apples going brown. Taste - stewed apples and dry leaves. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - prefer a still cider but this is not bad.

danlo (2393) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Clear golden colour, short-lived white foam head and aroma of tangy apple, wood, vanilla, light barnyard. Taste is tart, sourish, apple, woody oak, vanilla, bittersweet, barnyard. Oily mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, low carbonation, very dry with tannins and sour notes at the finish. Quite drinkable.

FatPhil (13312) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2011
500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Wednesday)
Pale, clear, fizzy. Crisp and sharp, but less fruity than Green Valley’s sweeter ciders. Thin and watery. Emasculated.
