2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the Michael Balcon JDW, Clear pale gold with a faint aroma of sweet apples. Too sugary and one-dimensional for my taste, not sufficiently redeemed by the distant hints of whisky and lemon.

Bottle. Thanks rayaron. Very pale yellow. Smell of sulphur, wood, green apples and white wine. Sweet, woody, spicy, notes of citrus and green apples. Medium-bodied, OK, but too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled draft @ “Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival”. Pale golden. Nose is far sweeter than I anticipated, sweet vanilla & oak mixed with sweet apples, making it bit of a one-noted combination. Taste is sweet apples, white sugar, lots of candy & light vanilla / sweet oak. Okay but expected more, others seemed to love it more than I did. I know nothing about cider.
