Very nice. Musty, tangy, much more lively than most ciders I’ve had.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 This one is great, is the first I have tried in Europe that I like. It has a strong but a sweet flavor at the time.

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2013
Draught at Princess Louise, Holbrook, London dec 2012. Bubbly. clear golden/yellow cider with a small offwhite head. Sourish apple aroma. Sweet and sourish apple flavour. Refreshing.

Frank (3026) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Pours a glowing pilsner golden with no head. Nose of tart apples. Reminds me slightly of the Lindeman's Faro I had the other day due to the sourness only a bit sweeter with less carbonation. Definite earthy notes. Nicely sweet but not at all cloying. Slightly vinous. A very fine cider indeed.

Osprey87 (2049) - WALES - DEC 14, 2014
Keg at Fitzroy Tavern. Very pale yellow, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head (not used to that on a cider). Aroma is gluey, apple juice, alcohol. Body is medium to light, soft carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste is apple-forward, minerally, not overly sweet, dry finish. Very drinkable. The commercial description shows that it’s made in a pretty artificial way...but I enjoyed my half pint.

On tap @ the Cramond Brig. Pours golden, actually smells of intense apple and actually tastes fairly similar. The palate has a good body a big tangy texture and a refreshing zing. Overall, pretty good.

Keg in the Anchor, Guisborough. pours straw with a light layer of white froth. Starts with sweet tart apples and a light citrus acidity. Slight dry finish. refreshing solid basic cider.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Quite sweet, but still very sparkling and refreshing. Nice natural apple flavour.

very nice natural apple flavour, with very nice carbonation, would like to try again as one of the best ciders iv had along with westons.
