3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (2012). Quite deep golden body with a disappearing head. Aroma has sweet peary esters and sweet apple jam. Also booze. Sweet taste with honey and apple jam. Some light woodiness and a bit of alcohol bitterness in the finish which later gets more intensive, even medicinal and at times resembles rotten apples. Nice and juicy but not really complex.

Lovely sunset yellow cider with a white foam. Fresh apples aroma. Crispy carbonation. Medium sweet a little tart or sour apple flavor. I really like this cider as it has more depth than the Westons vintage in my opinion.
