Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours clear gold with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is earthy, light funk, touch of cider vinegar, must and some dirty barnyard. The taste is sweet, candied apple, icing sugar, sweet pear and a touch of alcohol with a short, sweet finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Aroma is good, but taste is a bit sweet and thin.

Leighton (14694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle at home in London - picked up from the M&S in the Whiteley’s on Queensway. Pours crystal clear gold with a fizzy white head that fades out real quick. The nose has lightly ripened apples, some apple peel, very slight must. Mediums sweet flavor with sugary apples, some honey, nips of dry and bitter skin. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Somewhat crisp on the finish, moderately acidic, with more ripening apples, subtly musty peel, a bit of honey. A nicely refreshing, very drinkable sparkling cider.

Gurthnar (3337) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle 2013 from M&S. Clear golden colour. Moderate carbonation. Not too rich apple character, but nicely balanced in terms of basic flavours - balance of sour, tart, sweet, a bit of bitter. Slightly thin feeling. Dry sourish finish. Very easily drinkable, refreshing, moreish. Very good.
