2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL bottle BB 06/11/14
Hazy pale straw looking thing. A white head flairs up, but doesn’t persist.
Not much on the nose; some fresh apple juice character, vinous yeasty sort of undertones.
Light bodied, moderate carbonation, a decent spike of acidity higher than most mainstream ciders to be sure.
Palate starts with a touch of sweetness, fleshy apple follows then it turns a bit sour (literally), and there’s a slightly vegetal celery/green herbal sort of note. Finish somewhat abrupt, not what I’d regard a "clean" finishing cider.
An attempt at making a mainstream farmhouse style cider, bit of an oxymoron. Not terrible, but seemingly geared towards the masses than serious cider aficionados & craft beer drinkers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours a very cloudy greenish yellow. Small white head that fades almost immediately. Sweet stewed apple aroma; almost identical to applesauce. Medium sweet-dry ratio. Dry enough to avoid the dreaded stickiness. Strong cooking apple flavour initially with a sweet finish of fresh apple. Decent

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bottle into a crystal clear tumbler. Cloudy. Very cloudy. I found it very tart which was a most refreshing change. I wasn’t sure about this at first. But i thinkit is growing on me...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - pour cloudy pale yellow, looks a bit like lime juice. Aroma is a bit like stewed cooking apples. Crisp up front which mellows down into a smooth dry appley finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Seems greenish and cloudy with no head and some evident sparkle and stewed apple aroma. The flavours are of that same stewed apple. It isn’t over sweet, in fact I’d call it fairly balanced with its sweetness. Sessionable cider that seemed to keep Mrs Jimthechap happy.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not being a cider drinker the results were always going to be bad. Pours lighter and cloudier than a typical wit. Light hint of apples on the nose and has a little bit of a sourness on the front palate.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At just on cool and straight into the ol’ pint. Cloudy and opaque in the glass; a palest, pastel yellow in colour with very light carbonation. Highly mineralised is the faint apple peel nose with a weird edge of plasticine and Blu-tak™. Quite tart and tight in the mouth with a drawing acidity more akin to citrus than apple. A hint of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon sherbet and green apple pulp fades quickly after the swallow. It’s got plenty of body to its credit with a foamy, overall dry mouthfeel. Lingers with something reminiscent of raw enoki mushroom, but hey maybe that is just me. I didn’t mind this one ruling out the aftertaste and aroma. Easily quaffable stuff!
