500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Clear deep golden colour, short-lived white foam head and aroma of fruity apple, apple skins, wood. Taste is tangy apple, woody, oak, barnyard, some initial sweetness and then dry tannins, earthy. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, drying tannic, woody finish. Quite drinkable.

Bottle shared at ChrisO. Clear golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste apple, quite vinous yet pretty sweet, a hint of grapes, a hint of sugar, slightly alcohol. Decent body and carbonation.

Golden with a small white head. Aroma of ripe apple, wood and marzipan. Dry and tart apple flavour. Strongly carbonated, a bit too much

ALLOVATE (2474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2011
At room temperature, a 2009 vintage. Cap came off with a quiet ’pffft’. Still in the glass, radiant, deep, golden amber, seemingly viscous as I swirled it. Nose of plump fruit, ripe and fell, a little musty old apples in there too with oaken wood, match sticks and soft hessian, strawberries and tart cranberries and just a smidge of white cheese. Unexpectedly spritzy on the tongue, a little life showing. Alcohol is immediately evident giving it a warming, vinous quality. Nice level of ripe apple pulp fills the mouth, the body is firm to oily. Notes of vanilla icecream and soft white cheese, the oaken wood of the nose shines through nicely as does that odd matchstick, toothpick sense. The swallow is quite warming and full of fruit. This has a great presence in the mouth. Lingers long on the palate, all the flavour in harmony. A great sipping cider. Not overly complex but wonderfully crafted. Very nice! (50cL, BBE 06/12, Tesco Exmouth, Devon)

500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Tuesday)
Crisp fruity cider - lovely nose. In the mouth it’s also very crisp. Very fruity, some apple pips and skins too. No sign of 8.3% alcohol at all. Refreshing and uplifting.
