500 ml.bottle sampled thx! to Kraddel. Clear greenish apple juice appearance. Smells like candy, sweet apples, very sugary, pure candy but in a good way. Taste is simple sweet apples, sugar golden apples, white sugar, apple juice leading into some odd raw booze with old rotting wood barrels with an odd mouldy finish. Macro but okay. Fizzy sparkling mouthfeel.

Smell is a little volatile. Color is surprizingly orange red, much darker than most ciders. Taste is not really rude but it certainly is dry. Just a little better than my homemade cider. Quite strong on the taste buds, makes me a little numb. Yes, session need a few manners. Same with finish. Wew.

It is as it says. A bit bitter and dry. Not a bad flavor though, but one, if not use to, will take a bit. Id drink it again if my faves weren’t available.

Intense aroma of apples and alcohol. Color is copper, white head dissapears momentarily. Fizzy carbonation, very sweet with some sour, alcohol in the taste, watery side taste. Aftertaste is also slighlty sour and watery. Overall: was expecting more from "oak aged cider".

Keg @ Old Farmhouse, Southampton. Mid gold, very heavy on carbonation. Aroma of orchard fruit of course, but a bit sickly and synthetic. Sweet taste with sour/bitter creeping in but never dominating. A passable commercial sweet keg cider. Not really my thing.

Bottled. Pours clear golden in color. Rubbery stable, cellar and earthy leather notes in aroma. Some mashed apples as well. Apples in a mashed way, cinnamon and oaky barrel notes in taste. Mouthdrying. Cinnamon spiced apples baked in the oven in finish. Tasty and refreshing.

500ml bottle. Orangey golden amber colour, fizzy off-white head that quickly disappears and aroma of oak, apple. Taste is sweetish, apples with hints of woody oak. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, some tartness at the finish. OK cider.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint glass. Dark, clear, active, orange amber body. Fizzy cheap lager head.
Smells of bitter apples & animal crackers. Grease. Old leather, old money, watered down whiskey. Something orange-y near the end. Stuffy.
Once the harsh carbonation dies down, I taste some genuinely nice acid-y & bittersweet cider apples. Unfortunately, the second half is not so nice. Way too much wood. Sucking on popsicle sticks come to mind. Dusty texture. Asprin bitterness. Some faint lingering vanilla & peel.
The carbonation did it no favors, as it tasted decent enough only once it warmed up & flattened out.

500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Aroma of sweetish ripe apples and notes of wood. Flavour of sweetish apples and not much else. Some slight oak notes in the finish. OK, but nothing particularly interesting.
