3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light to medium orange/gold with a frothy, lacy, disappearing white head. Smells of sweet apples and vinegar with hints of wood. Rusitc. Medium thin watery body with soft carbonation. Taste of sweet apple with light apple core sourness, wood and the finish is acidic, dry and artificial flavour filled. Easy to drink but really simple of a cider.

Slightly watery, but a decent sharpness to the aroma. Definitely appley. Refreshing crisp palate. Leaves you with an appley finish. However, something’s missing. It’s a bit watery and gutless.

500 ml bottle. BBE 05/2011, vintage! [sic] Rated @ 25.6.2011.
Pours a clear golden colour without a head. Looks like apple juice. Aroma of sweet tart apples and some wood. Flavour of tart, dry, green apples, cardboard, and again wood. Light bodied with a watery mouthfeel and a surprisingly strong, acidic apples. A month after BBE and this has clearly gone quite sour.
