3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bought at Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Lively pour, golden colour and moderate carbonation. Tart aroma of apples with some honeyed sweetness. Flavour was dry, with plenty of apples, woodiness, and yeast, smoothed by the honey, finishing with some more tartness. The honey gave this a bit more character. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[500ml bottle from a farm shop somewhere in Devon] Dry and tart at first with a crisp fizz. The honey leaves a lingering creamy sweetness. Very refreshing, yet more-ish. Im no fan of cider normally, but I liked this very much indeed!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. pale blonde. Oak, honey and apple in the aroma. Swetish apple flavor with persisting notes of oak, especially in the aftertaste. Honey. A considerable dry out effect. Sawdust. Thirst quenching, not too sweet and even some complexity.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale gold. Sweet aroma with a promising tart background. Taste has a little sourness and even the beginning of a back of the throat dryness. Mainly, though, it’s a not unpleasant if slightly thin sweetness. I’m not sure I’d have identified it as honey.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a rough, white head that dissipates in no time. Lightly tart apple aroma. Medium body with dry apple notes and some acidity. The honey isn’t very distinct but I believe it adds a certain smoothness to the mouthfeel. Fairly high in carbonation with a dry finish. Very drinkable. 190208
