COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, - MAY 20, 2013
Apologies admins- have added this twice with my fat sausage fingers. From Fosse. Headless green gold. Nose lambic dankness, wasp-infused wheelie bin fruit left to sour on the lawn a couple of months. Dryish, sweet-sour, slightly smoky with Bramley pie filling, cider vinegar, chalky, TCP, paprika (?) and lovely, just-turning sour notes. Complex and incredibly easy to drink with the illusion of refreshment. The kind of cider that undoes my prejudices about cider and keeps me drinking it.

Maakun (569) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Pale golden with some big bubbles. Nice fresh apple, with some white wine, dreid apple peel and fresh juice. Not too sweet or musty, light fresh sweet with more dry and slightly barnyard finish. Light bodied and slightly watery. Decent stuff.

FatPhil (9289) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle (Marks & Spencer Kristiine, Tallinn)
Lovely sharp appley aroma, some almost scrumpy-like dryness, the oak aging coming through nicely. Clear gold, slightly fizzy pour. SImple crisp palate. Slightly acidic bite. Really sharp in the mouth, but still pleasantly fruity. Touch of candifloss, and later even some bacon in the finish. No alcohol at all, super refreshing. For a filtered cider, this is very good indeed.

harrisoni (13616) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from Marks & Spencer St Pancras drunk on the train on the way home. Not sure that a 6.5% cider is the best thing to drink in my condition but hey rates drive the needy man. Clear gold ring of white bubbles. It’s a decent scrumpy type cider. Hugely drinkable good apples good carbonation. Some almost salt and vinegar type acidity. Very likeable and doesn’t drink its strength
