harrisoni (15643) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Clear gold colour with thin white collar. Some decent acidity on the aroma. Touch of acetone even. I like the acetone on this very much. Finish has some dryness. Good character and good firmness in mouth. Rather a decent cider.

imdownthepub (11661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Orange gold with no head. I think I’m beginning to remember the flavours of the different apple types. This is fairly sweet, sucrose with a faint taste of old leather and rusk. Heady alcohol notes. Decent for cider and worth a punt.

Drank from an oversized wine goblet. Nice rustic vibes. Very old skool . Like they’ve not changed the recipe in 150 years type of vibe to this Cider .Sweet and dry...apple skin,wood and a waxiness .Pretty classy.

rauchbier (3685) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2009
Bottle, from Sainsburys, Grimsby. Gold, no head and good condition. Pleasant apple sweetness with a slight suggestion of toffee in the nose, restrained apple sweetness in the mouth with a low gentle oily bitterness and a muted woodiness that lingers in the finish

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
Gold. Sweet slightly ashy cooking apple aroma. Sweet fruity taste, though the balancing dryness gave an oddly disconcerting impression of the chemical bitterness one associates with artificial sweeteners. But it was an above average bottled commercial cider.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2009
Tasted 01/01/2008. 500ml bottle from Regionals. Bright lambent gold with a disappearing foam. Sweet apple aroma, with a little skin and wood. More sweet apple in the mouth, with not as much acidity or tannin as I’d like to balance. Good apple flavour, subtle skin complexity. Nice to sip over an hour or so while I cut some legs off a solid rimu table but the medium sweet finish is a little too sweet for me to enjoy on an ongoing basis.

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 17, 2008
Pours a mid gold with a disappearing lace. Aroma features applewood, a touch of tannic plastic, a warm character. On the palate there is rich sweet apple, warm alcohol, loads of woody tannin leading to a medium dry finish. The evident alcohol would make this a good winter warmer.
