Bottled (backlog). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet apples, some mild vanilla and a bit of yeasty notes. Flavour is sweet and tart apples with some slight sugary and mild winelike notes. A bit thin, but otherwise ok.

ALLOVATE (2726) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2015
Wow, phooooof, cow pat nose meets soft vanillin, balsa, toothpicks, pear drops. Pours a brilliant, deep, honey gold with light effervescence, actually almost still. Creamy, big and plump in feel. Quite sweet with lasting sugary sweet apple pulp. A lot of earthy, musty notes around to save it. Light salted cheese, tangy pear juice, long apple cordial flavour. Quite nice but on such a sweeter tip. Not quite my thing!! (50cL, BB 10/11/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

Bottled 06/09/14. A light golden cider with no head. a sweet fizzy apply nose. Same in the mouth. a biggish body. No funk but definite and decent enough yet friendly apple. It’s pleasant.

harrisoni (15793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home in front of the football. Clear gold no real head. Apple juice aroma and flavour. Medium sweet I’’d say. No great dryness or tannin or other interest, but perfectly drinkable and pleasant. Yes drinkable enough if fairly forgettable

apickles (303) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle. Light golden colour, sparkling & clear. Sweet aroma with quite a traditional cider nose. Light & refreshing with a slight scrumpy edge. Is however a little drying on the mouth but overall a nice cider.

olliejobbins (1525) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
500ml bottle. pours a clear yellow, lighter than the other orchard pig i had. aroma is less tart too. more like a toffee apple perhaps? good, slightly sweet taste. but one is enough. prefer it a little less sweet but still nice nonetheless.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle shared at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting 2013 - London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a light, bubbly film head. Funky manure and apple in the aroma. Big sweet flavor, lightly medicinal, some faint rubber, sugary apples. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, lightly sticky, somewhat pukey. Not excellent.
