3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at The Punch Bowl in York. Pours burnished copper with a white smear. Aroma of old appleskin. Near med body. Flavor is almost oaky appleskin. It’s astringent, but not really dry. Almost or mayhap even actually bitter. Very tasty. Too drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Pint out the chiller, Earl of Mercia, Coventry, 07/10/12. Headless gold. Slightly lambic, lime and crab aroma. Drying, mildly spontaneous, mid-sweet, almost flat with apple bubblegum and clovey hints. Ordered it thinking it was a Welsh stout, hence it’s become the only cider I’ve ever rated. On this showing it might not be the last.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the best ciders available. Amber in colour with a rich fruity aroma. Taste is somehow sweet, sour and bitter all at once. Like a good marmalade. Deceptively easy to drink and therefore far too easy to get drunk on.

Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a golden colour without a head. Aroma of very sweet red apples, caramel and herbs. Flavour of sweet red apples, vanilla, herbs, caramel and alcohol. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. Juicy cider with a bit too much alcohol.

I am not normaly a cider drinker. In trueth the only reason l’m drinking my 2nd pint of it now id due to the fact l liked the name and thought it was an ale.
Saying that its blooming marvellous! It also leaves an unplaceable after taste l can only liken to mead!

Cask conditioned at The Punch Bowl (JDW), York. (7.2% ABV). Deep orangey body. Thin bubbly white head quickly dissipates. Alcohol, apple, oak, definite vanilla notes, municipal water. Sweet! With some quite sour notes. Like a slightly more bitter apple juice. Dry finish. Warming.
