Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear pale golden beer without any head. Aroma of sour apples, Flavor is quite sour, stringent and tingy. Really interesting to have something like this Not really impressed, but still a really fun thing to try. Sourness really sticks. Nice cider.

EdKing (1872) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle picked up from the brewery. This is probably going to be my lowest rate for Old Chimneys, much as I love some of their other beers. This pours out very very pale rusty amber with lots of effervescent bubbles. The nose on it is barely discernible. There’s some apple skin, light peach but very little else. Taste is very very watery, as if its lacking enough apple. Dab of white vinegar, slight fresh white apple, crisp dry yeast character. It’s really far too light and needs more flavour.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle at Chris O’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Hazy pale yellow color. Sweet and acidic aroma with refreshing apple scent. Much dryer flavor with grapefruit and lemon. The flavor is kind of empty after promising aroma. Acidity makes the refreshing.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours light hazy yellow, with no head. The nose is tart apple, farmyard, sweet berry and lemon. The taste is juicy red apple, sour green apple, white grape, tart lemon and tangy fruit, with a pleasant dry-tart finish. Decent.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours hazy yellow with basically no head. Sugary apple nose. Flavor is sweet, lightly sour, with moderate apple presence, hints of salt. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Dries out well on the finish, more touches of sugar. Alright.
