Earlier Rating: 10/17/2004 Total Score: 3.3
Straw coloured without excessive carbonation. Aromas are earty apples with some pepper. Flavours are dry and earthy apples without much sweetness - especially the unforgivable sweeteners in some ciders. Some pepper on the finish followed by a very dry and woody aftertaste. A good honest cider.

Bottle. Clear yellow golden body with no head. Apple earth wood aroma. Mild and relatively sweet apple flavor with a strange dry note that I cannot figure out. Low carbonation, short aftertaste.

Bottled and picked up from a farm shop Mar 06. Straw coloured cider with quite a pleasant appley aroma, bit on the dry side but a decent taste which was very natural and a very drinkable if not outstanding cider.
