Pint at red lounge Dorking. Hazy orange pour. Completely a I’ll with no bubbles on the surface. Aroma is sweet, syrupy apple sauce. Smooth, pretty sweet stuff. Toffee apple taste. Nice but not particularly refreshing and no "bite".

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Handpull at the Old Bell, Sawbridgeworth. Orange-gold, completely still. Pleasant applesauce aroma with a slight innuendo of potpourri. Taste is too sweet. Not artificial, just more like apple juice than cider. Bittersweet juicy finish. Hard to get excited about.

Cask by handpump at Jolly Judge, Edinburgh (9 Aug 2013)(5.3% abv on the pumpclip) - clear golden amber, weak apple / pear aroma, no head, very sweet, apple and pear flavour, flat, easy to drink

Rune (9355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2013
Half pint of cider from cask at Jolly Judge. A slight haze to a amber-gold coloured body. Low, bubbly surface. Sweet fruity aroma of apples and pears. Similar taste profile of sweet apples and pears. Dry, almost sticky, sweet ending. Quite drinkable, however, one half was enough for me (Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Bag-in-the-box at The Globe, King’s Lynn, 5.3% ABV
Blond color. Apple juice aroma. Apple juice flavor, semi sweet, with low character, just a hint of astringency and some lemon juice in the end.
Pleasant but simple.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 10, 2012
Tap (Black Door, Helsinki)
Simple cidery aroma, slightly sharp and a little phenolic. Taste similar, but feels a little watered down. Completely clear, but fortunately not too pale. Should be made to proper strengths, as this slips down like fruitjuice, and then not filtered so much.
