DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, 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 itís become the only cider Iíve 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

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2012
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 lím 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!
