imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Draught at The Orchard Inn, Bristol. Gold with no head. Sweet, fruity dessert apple type cider, thinnish a little claggy on the palate. It’s ok.

apickles (89) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Tasted at the annual ale and arty beer festival in Stockton. Slightly cloudy with a hint of red colouring, but mainly golden. Quite a strong nose, slightly vinegary traditionally smelling cider. Really quite nice, full of flavour, just slightly drying on the mouth.

minutemat (890) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
500ml bottle from New Forest Cider, Borough Market. Exceedingly good cider, fruity and rich with overripe apples and just the right amount of dry earthiness on the finish.

TimE (2979) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2013
Hazy med amber golden color. Mildly spicy nose if nutmeg and cinnamon and raisins. Unbelievable sweet and tart mouth showing cinnamon, brandy, stewed apples. Great balance of acidity. Puckering dry finish. Stewed apples and cinnamon just linger despite the dryness at the end. Wow. This is the type of English cider I’ve been looking for.

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2013
Cask @ The Castle Inn, West Lulworth - The permanent Dorset Cider Festival. Unclear, dark orange body with practically no head. Aroma has apple cores and wood. Flavor is medium sweet apple, quite strong apple core/ripe apple, wood and a bit earthy. Nothing here that reminds me about port wine, but it has a pleasant robust and smooth flavor at the same time. Interesting twist.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 On tap at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in 1st Welly Summer Cider Festival ’11. Bright Lucozade orange. Faint sweet aroma. Taste has sweetness up front, followed by a pervasive sharp artificial sweetener dryness. Didn’t like this much.

Cask at the Alma, London, Oktoberfest Beer Festival. Pours a glowing, ruby-pink, with basically no head. Really, this hue is remarkable. Otherworldy even! Has an apple and light funk aroma. Flavor is dank, sweet, dry. Hintsof sweaty gym socks and dirt. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Has a very dry, sweet finish with light must, earth, apple and more dankness. Super cider.
