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!

On tap at BKS festival. The aroma has apples. Clear, golden coloured cider with a thin head. The taste is light sweet and has apples. Refreshing. Nice.

minutemat (4154) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Draught at shrewsbury hotel. Pours copper. Rich caramel aroma. Quite a rich super sweet taste perhaps too much. Rather boozy & syrupy. Not really a pint-worthy cider.

Hazy dark-ish golden color with almost no head. Apples and a bit grassy aroma. Full body. Tad sweet and a fine acidity. Soft carbonation. Powerful apple flavor with some grassy notes. Tasty nice cider!

Tap at the Pump House, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is kinda apple. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth light alcohol apple palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. It’s a cider. They all taste the same don’t they??

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
September 5, 2014 at The Southampton Arms (visit #1) - handpull. Amber-gold, very clear and refractive, just a hint of bubbly head. Aroma is quite interesting - apple, alcohol, and an odd uric tartness ... the taste is super super simple, and drinks like 4% - some baked alaska sweetness in it, but ... wow. Slick, average body, not all that much acidity, and quick finishing - very pleasant. A real "wind up in the gutter" pull.

MichaelAwesome (6434) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Draught at the Cider Farm in Lewes. This one was quite classy. Cloudy, sharp, some earth in the back with a bit of grass and hay. Unusual aromas by a fine and special cider. Big apples and sharp ending. Liked that one like McT did.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Draught at the Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes / Firle. Pours out in a deep orange-golden colour with smooth body. Aroma of leaves and red apples. Taste of ripe red apples, some light unripe green ones, leaves and fields. Smooth and delicious finish. Nice one.
