Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear, extremely pale yellow with a few bubbles. Hugely fragrant, like perfume, like a punch of flowers to the face. Medium sweet flavor with tons more flowers along with some herbs. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Outrageously floral and perfumey and very sweet to finish. Somewhat artificial and just way too much perfume.

harrisoni (16533) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
33cl bottle from Sainsburys Clear very pale gold colour with a thick white head. Certainly quite a lot of elderflower on the aroma. Yes, not entirely sure I like this. I like elderflower in something like Dark Star Hylder Blond, but not sure it works so well in a cider. Definitely herby. But it’s a bit sweet and it’s just not really very good as a combination of flavours and the sweetness is just too much. Glad it’s only a 33cl bottle.

allmyvinyl (8668) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2015
330ml bottle from Sainsbury. Pours clear pale yellow with no head. Aromas of elderflowers, almost a floral hop thing going on. Taste is very floral, white grape schloer, some astringency, but a sweet finish overall. Alcopop territory.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Headless green gold. Beautifully fragrant tinned lychee and pollen aroma. Sweet and vibrant with the elderflower dominating all else. Mellow acidity to counter the sweetness. Lady cider no doubt, but a good one.

mR_fr0g (7795) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle at home From Sainsbury;s spilt with Sarah. Aroma is big and artificial, parfummed lavender, purple violets and pear drops. Aroma is very sweet as well. Petrol colour with a relucant white head. Fine campagne like bubbles. Flavour is very parfummed and sweet. Pears and slight tart apple skin in the finish, but it’s not enough; this is still way wway sweet.

Bottle from sainsburys, wednesfield. Almost clear yellow cider with quite a bit of carbonation. Aroma of elderflower and herb. Taste is elderflower, herb and Apple juice in the background. Not great.

minutemat (3604) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours greenish yellow, clear. Aroma is elderflower / grandma’s toilet pot pourri. Taste follows, with an old woman dithering around the town market hall character. Herbal with a touch of turkish delight. Can’t say this would be my go-to cider. Unless I became insane.
