harrisoni (13733) - 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 Iííd say. No great dryness or tannin or other interest, but perfectly drinkable and pleasant. Yes drinkable enough if fairly forgettable

apickles (124) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014

olliejobbins (789) - 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.

Flavours of sour apples, cellar, dust, dry, grapes, some berries, some sour notes, wild yeast, light bitter, light spices and dry wood tones. Aftertaste is dry, some dusty sour apples and some light dusty cellar tones. Medium to fuller carbo, sparkling mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a dry light watery texture.

Leighton (11023) - 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.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 500ml bottle (Milenka, Helsinki)
Iced water aroma, some apple too. Just a touch of dry woodiness, but itís desperately thin. Middle of the road colour. Nice dry tanniny woody retronasals, but the palate is thin, itís a watery cider. Alas the cider is totally freaking boring Even the 4.5% N.I. one earler was more interestng than this. Watery, thin, and gutless, itís just an excuse to get drunk, which is what Iím tring to avoid.
