minutemat (1502) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
330ml bottle from Ludlow Food Festival. Bottle says 7%. Fairly dry and acidic for a medium. Taste brings to mind strong, dry cider apples such as Kingston Black with a complex, tangy aftertaste that thankfully doesn’t get too syrupy. Nice stuff.

From bottle, The Good Food Show 01-12-07 Wonderful cider that was really rather refreshing, ok so it was maybe a touch on the sweet side, but lovely, appley, fresh and moreish.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Sweet, good conversion-cider (converting cider-cows, that is). Nothing stands out as objectionable or particularly excellent.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2007
From barrel @ GBBF 2007, London. Hazy orange green grey color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate apple, sour, horse stable. Flavor is light to moderate sweet with some sourness and with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
From the barrel - GBBF2007. An olive coloured cider. The apples in the aroma smell like they have just started cooking. The taste has nice apples with tannin. Smooth tasty and well balanced. Nice.
