DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Cask in 3 Judges. Pours an amazing bright orange/reddy colour. Honestly looks like sahti but not as muddy. Aroma is sweet and sour apples, spicey and soem nutty citric acid bite. Taste is similar very drinkable stuff. Really nice.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Cask at the Cotham Porter Stores, Bristol. Vivid orange colour with next to no head. Sweet apple aroma with a hint of spice and some citrus. Flavour was sweet with a yeasty edge. Drinkable for its strength.

Fukito (1016) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 26, 2007
Stillage @ The Rake, november 07. Deep, hazy, shinny orange color. Orange marmalade, musty aroma wth some very slight blasamic and lemony notes. Orange/ apples flavor with some mineral components. Really nice. Mouthfeel is medium, satiating, refreshing and very balanced. Excellent cider that reminds me of faro.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
[695-20070925] Cask @ Far From The Madding Crowd (Oxford, OX). Musty wood and apples aroma. Murky, orange body with no head (oddly like cheese). Apple cider flavour is fairly sweet and hides the alcohol. Medium body. Well blended, points for oddness.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2007
Cask @ The Wenlock. Opaque orange, like Tang for those that know, with a thin white ring around the edge of the glass. Sweet apple and cinnamon with some orange hints. Much like Tang all round actually, slightly dry but smooth and easy to drink.

Comments: Incredible product, kind of a guilty product in my case. It is straight atomic orange – sunset coloured and absolutely glowing. Just can’t be natural, but delicious grapefruit rind flavours. Totally unique and different despite the gimmick around it and still firmly tannic.

Svesse (7725) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2007
(Cask at Wenlock Arms, London, 11 Aug 2007) Ok, so I’m not really a cider kinda guy, but why not finish a lovely evening at the Wenlock with a cider? Orange, reddish colour with brief white head. Fruity nose with slightly tart apple aromas (Red Delicious?). Fruity, slightly acidic taste with sweetish apple notes. Not really complex and lacking something extra, but still definitely enjoyable.

Fin (9357) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Polypin at Merton Summer Beer Festival 04-07-07 Tried this on the Wednesday night. Poured with a radioactive looking orange colour more like J20 than Cider, this colour must be artificial surely? Taste was dryish bit sharp and reasonable appley flavours.

StueyD (1564) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2007
A bright orange, cloudy and still cider. A fairly potent apple fruit aroma, plus a little sourness. The taste is on the dryer side of medium, with plenty of mouth puckering sour apple flavours. A dry finish. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
