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 (3559) - 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.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, deep golden with no head. Leathery apple aroma. Medium-bodied and very classical English with its leathery astringency and also some wooden notes. Sweetness dominates but it’s very well balanced by the leathery astringency. Low in carbonation and therefore terribly easy to drink in spite of the heavy alcohol. 180208

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys. Delicate pale gold colour with a big, frothy white head. Sweet apple with a touch of barnyard. Caramelised apple flavours with some balancing dryness in the finish. Enjoyable.

Fin (7024) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle, Golden in colour, with plenty of carbonation. Fruity aroma, taste is good with pleasant juicy appley tang but just a little too sweet to be really enjoyable.

leaparsons (7798) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Golden with lots of rising bubbles. Aromas are mellow, sweet and earthy apple with gentle woodiness and caramel. Flavours are sweet apple juice with a mellow, dry woodiness. Quite syrupy but not cloying. Nice caramel notes. Has a good sparkle with a dry finish.
