3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bag in a box at Haddenham Beer Festival, Haddenham, Bucks, 05-07-08 Pours similar in colour to its stablemate, so warm golden, colour a bit richer with this one and also like the other its quite hazy. More depth of flavour here with the sweetness carrying forth plenty of nice tasty apples, its still got a nice tang to it and is a very nice cider.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bag in Box in Blackfriars. Aroma is noteably sweeter cider apples, nutmeg and general spice. Taste is similar, very very apply indeed and defo on the sweeter side, but very tasty and drinkable.
