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.

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!
