Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2012
In bottle from Margiotta’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a sweet apple aroma. An apple flavour and a very bitter and dry tannic character. Alcohol is fairly present. OK.

Martinus (4280) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2012
Clear pale golden colour, fast disappearing white head. Aroma of apples, apple cores and earth. Quite sweet flavour, light bitter apple peel, fruity apples, light wood and pear notes. Light carbonation, finish apple, apple peel and earth notes. Quite fresh, considering the ABV.

Martin243 (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
500 ml bottle served cool. Golden yellow and sparkly in the glass. Proper apple aroma and flavour. Smooth almost creamy mouth feel, and considering the ABV, the alcohol is more of a nudge than a kick. Well balanced and quaffable.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Very appley nose that shows off the single varietal nature of this cider - earthy notes with a balance of sweetness and acidity. Pours pale copper. Taste follows the nose with earthiness and some lemony sweetness. Finishes dry and moreish. Very quaffable.

ALLOVATE (2720) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle, just on cold @ Sheppy’s Cellar door, Taunton, Somerset.
Pours a medium gold and almost lifeless bar the odd shy bubble. Wonderfully plump, sweet apple pulp nose, simple and clean. First mouthful was drowned in alcohol giving it a kick. Quite light on the palate, a little tickle of carbonation before becoming oily in back to finish smooth. Seemed more pear than apple in flavour with ample tangy and sweet fruit showing. Little hints of strawberry, vanilla, apple peel, wood and damp earth build as it goes. Swallow is warming, vinous and a little astringent but drops off very short. Not the most complex of ciders and unashamedly heaving with warming alcohol, yet it is still a tasty number. Nice slow drinker!! (50cL, BBE 07/13)

tommann (3053) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours orange gold with lots of carbonation. Aroma is strongly acidic with some sharp apple underneath. Taste is much the same, light acid to start, much stronger acid and apple skins on the finish.
