Draught at the Hope Tap, Reading. Light amber. Very sweet economy apple juice up front. Growing vanilla gives a nice smoothness. A little oakiness and a hint of nail varnish remover in the finish. Quite tasty, but a bit too sweet for me.

EdKing (1848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Gravity at GBBF 2013. Clear amber, light small foam head, bubbly lacing and head stays. Nose is pungent apple tannin, earthy, aged apple skins, alcohol. Taste is sweetish apple, juicy, refreshing, apple juice, stoney, earthy. Deceptive because it’s quite strong. Not much dryness, but fruity.

TimE (3143) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2013
Perfectly flat, lifeless carbonation. Great fruity character backed underneath by oak, raisins stewed apples. Smooth. Very quaffable for the strength. Oak works very well with this cider.

Rune (7992) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
Half, 7.3% abv, cask at Vernon Arms. Copper coloured body, headless, no lacing. Aroma of apples. Sweet, half dry, taste of apples offset by momentary tartness to the aftertaste. Medium bodied. Cider is not a favourite of mine, but alright to drink now and then. This one was ok, a tad too sweet though (Liverpool 08.04.2013)

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.

DruncanVeasey (7142) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
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.
