Had on tap at the Cross Keys, Covent Garden. A hazy yellow pour with a slight green tint. Nose is of rich baked apples and green apple skin with a touch of sulphur. In the mouth it’s tart but sweet with a full body and a note of alcohol. It leaves one with a long-lasting clean apple flavour. Pretty good, definitely a nicer cider.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Pembury Tavern, November 2009 at 6.8%. Sweetish but not too easygoing. A little rubbery on the nose. Lots of tannin on the palate. Decent stuff.

Bullit (3856) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2008
Bon Accord. Hazy copper-orange looking, no head. Aroma of sour apples, wet wood and phenoles. Flavour of sour apple, vinegar, wood. Dry finish. Excellent cider.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2007
Blackfriers. Aroma is deep sour vinigar apples, like super over ripe. Taste is a big bag of excellent tart cider apples with a great vinigar bite that makes the cheeks suck in. Nice one.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2007
A Mes rate: From a cardboard box at London Drinker. Cheesy, earthy aroma, almost lambic like. Some nice white wine notes in the mouth and some fairly heavy acidity. Very dry. Great hit of vanilla at the finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2007
Gravity@Battersea BF. Acidic apple skin flavours, with a dry feeling on both the tongue and the roof of the mouth. Has some septic qualities (i mean this in the best possible way). Quite refreshing, not bad.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2007
Bag in a box at Battersea BF 2007. This was the Dry version of the cider. Cheesy cidery aroma. Very dry in mouth. Bit of cheddar cheese, bit of wood, bit of sweet apple juice. Rather a good cider I thought and my first of 2007.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 Gravity @ Battersea Beer Festival. Powerfull feel. Slight sweetness initially, not too tart with drying tannin. Well balanced flavours with nothing to the fore but still tasty and drinkable.
