Golden clear with no head. Aroma is white wine, yeast, minimal apple. Taste is surprisingly heavy sweet, like honey and alcohol. Really watery. Overall ok I guess.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
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 (2181) - Cambridge, 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.

Rune (10927) - 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).
