Keg @ White Lion, Heptonstall. Deep gold in colour. Fairly dry with the apple evident but understated in taste, although lingers for a while. Good nose.

Tap - unknown source vessel (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Very sweet aroma. But even sweeter in the taste. Maybe whoring itself to people who donít like real cider, but alienating the scrumpy fans like me. Sugary palate, slick as itís flat. Tastes like the sugarís trying to cover up something, such as booze. However, it is very appley. Shame, Iíve had some good stuff from these guys, but this is just absurd levels of sweetness, I canít cope with that in cider any more than I can in pale ales or lagers (I can cope with it in barley wines and stouts)

Very pale clear still cider with a sweet appley nose. Quite syrupy in flavour with a bit of a kick at the end.

Polypin @ Galtres festival. Pale see through colour. Slight appley taste, with a big hit of alcohol. Tramp juice but acceptable enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
On cask at the Rook and Gaskill. Pours an extremely light straw colour with an aroma of sweet apples and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation. Quite sweet overall.

wheresthepath (1621) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2011
[Polypin at the Three Crowns, Chippenham] Clear with slight greenish-gold hints - one of the palest ciders Iíve ever seen. Aroma of meths and nail varnish remover. Tastes overwhelmingly sweet, thereís a hint of unripe aplles in there but there must have been a load of sugar added, surely - this is like syrup solution. Evident alcohol - this is probably favoured by tramps. Tellingly, on my drunkenly scrawled notes the words "this will make you ill" have subsequently been amended to "this will make you dead"!

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
From a polycask at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 23/01/10. Pale, almost colourless, green in colour. Sweet apple juice with plenty of sugar. The alcohol was very well hidden, which could make this dangerous, if forgettable drinking.
