oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Bottled. Surprisingly dark golden, close to ambery orange, colour, which has a small white head. Aroma is sweet apples, some wood, mild sourness as well as quite sugary and yeasty notes. Flavour is sugary, wooden, mild sour wooden notes as well as some sweet ripe apples to it. Mild almost syrupy notes to it as well. Balanced and quite delicious. This one I was sipping my share of for quite a while.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2011
This was labelled as Sheppys Vintage Reserve 2009 Oak Matured 7.4% ABV. Pure gold clear colour with a collar of white bubbles. Lovely scrumpy cider aroma. Fullness in mouth and good dryness and tannin on the finish. Tasty strong cider where the alcohol doesn’t show up too much. Oak isn’t too prevalent. But this is a decent supermarket cider with plenty of character and flavour and a good gum hitting bite on the finish. I liked it.
