rauchbier (3800) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle, from Waitrose, Lincoln. Pale Gold, shortlived white head and low condition. Pleasant musty earthy oak notes and sweet apple juice in the nose, soft and sweet in the mouth but quite full bodied with some bitter appleskin notes to give balance and a dangerous drinkability. Quite a short finish with some dry skin notes and a faint apple sweetness, and a retronasal alcohol note right at the end to remind you of the strength.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bright and sparking tight and a bit dry to the nose. A very rustic and beautifully English apple flavour remains perfectly preserved here. This is a lovely cider, lovely.
