yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden cider with some white bubbles on top. The aroma is sort of sweetish, with yellow apples. Some apple cores in the flavor but mostly sweet apples. Medium body, quite dryish even though it’s on the sweet side. A quite decent one, for drinking purposes, it lacks a bit to be really good. 110319

Bottle, SH Jones, Banbury, Oxon, 28-07-07 Poured warm golden with a red blush, little carbonation. Tasted very soft and smooth, quite sweet but dangerously easy drinking, with a baked apple tart type taste the usual crisp and sharp bite was tempered. Nice

downender (7843) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2009
Bottle from Tesco. Clear gold in colour with a decent white head and plenty of carbonation. Would echo comments about this being easily drinkable - pleasant sweet apples, with dryness in the finish and a touch of oak and spice character. Another good bottled cider from Sheppys.

These ciders seem to be creapign up into scotland slowly, and i can understand why, some of them are quite good. Alround a nice refreshing drink which loads oif extra ripe apple charcter, though a little dryer than expected.

minutemat (4145) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours quite a clear yellow, with a light yet assured vanilla sweet taste. Can’t work out why this got such an average rating.. for a sweet cider this has a great well-rounded blend that really hits the spot.
