500ml bottle from Borough Market. Drank this alongside Sheppy’s Kingston Black to compare. This has the same ABV but appears more orangey and thus more tannic and gum-sucking. The fruitiness is there but teasing you from a distance as you feel your gums rubbing against your tongue like velcro. Aroma is much stronger also, barnyard with a little horse stables, which actually emerges from the taste about 4 sips in. Probably more interesting than Sheppys but also a lot rougher.

Bottle from a stall in Borough Markets. Clear golden pour with no head. Sweet and tangy nose - loads of apple skin. Taste is heavy apple skin, juicy and tangy apples with too much sweetness. Ok but a little too sharp and sweet

A wee freebie snifter from the stall in Borough Market, London. Apples,leather, cheese, cat pee and yeast did battle on the taste buds. I think the word is "complex". Would probably need at least a half to appreciate, but I was certainly intrigued.

A light golden cider. The aroma is dominated by apples. The flavor is sweet with notes of apples, leading to a dry apply finish.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
At the Bree Louise. Pours a lightly cloudy, pale yellow. Very dank aroma with notes of vinegar and apples. Wow, funky flavor, acidic, spicy, dank, with apples and cinnamon. Medium bodied, flat with definite warmth. Finishes funky and spicy, moderately sweet, slightly tart and tangy. Pretty interesting stuff.
