Rune (10838) - 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)

bhensonb (13742) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 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.

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.

Very dry and sweet with a smoked aroma, some of which is carried in its taste.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
