minutemat (2504) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Pint at various public houses in the South of England. Beautifully deep orange colour, smooth medium dry blend with no carbonation. Not especially refreshing and a little tame, but still a firm favourite.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Keg(?) on the Cider Boat (!), Bristol. Looks totally unique. Flat and the colour of unreconstituted carrot juice. Orangey carrot taste - stiff yes, but dry. Really good. Cider eh, bloody hell.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
At Foresters, Brockenhurst; cloudy dark impenetrable orange colour - couldn’t decide whether it looked attractive or disgusting; dry, lightly sweet; quite a bitter finish; apple peel more than apple flesh to this untrained palate; nothing amazing, but made quite a nice alternative to the beer in this Ringwood dominated town.

Red/orange colour, like grapefruit juice. Sweet and sour, very fruity but dry and bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask handpull, The Lime Kilns, on the A5, nowhere, LE/CV borders, 14/01/13. Umbongo orange with no head. Appletise (oops, nearly the A-word there), almond, mouldering lawn, hum of wasp, slight tannic aroma. Sourish, mildly tannic with calamine, marzipan and nasty cocktail hints. Somewhat rough and boozy. Drying finish. Not for me.

HenrikSoegaard (11492) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2011
Draught at Montagu Pyke, London. Strange (nice) dark orange colour. Powerfull apple aroma and flavor. Very dry. Fresh and barnyard notes. Long finish. Oily palate. Great cider.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
On cask at the Sir John Moore in Glasgow. Pours a cloudy orange colour, reminiscent of Australian Fanta, with a lacy white head. Aroma of oranges, apples and orange sherbet. Similar orange and apple flavours. Very low carbonation with a dry finish and a soapy orange rind linger. Just OK.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Cask at The Wenlock Arms - Aug 20 2011. Really does pour a reddish hue, not much head - 4/5 for the unique colour. Aroma is pleasing, in a funky acidic way - apple with citrus or underripe mango, lemon tartness - taste follows, more lemon and ripe "red" apple, appleskin, maybe a hint of grapeskin. Fairly thick body, quite acidic, mild carbonation, and a longish sour/acidic finish, didn’t have a lot of "apple" character in the aftertaste. It grew on me.

dynamiteninja (1679) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask. The Last Plantagenet, Leicester. No head, orange. Apples, watery. Bittersweet, with a long bitter finish. Not one of my favourites.

Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2011
Cask. A red cider - like Mette’s former hair color. The aroma is dominated by apples, but also with a light note of vinegar. The flavor is sweet and is dominated by apples, leading to a tart finish.
