jjsint (628) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Draught at Derby NWAF 2014. Cloudy orange-yellow. Aroma of hay and barnyard. Taste is sour-sweet and full. A bit of cheese in the flavour... my God would this go well with Stilton. A lovely cider, not as dry as I normally like but still incredible.

Pours a cloudy orange colour, taste is very strong and ethynol like, nice but a bit too potent

Brigadier (2875) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2013
On tap at a cider festival in Bath
There were a number of intriguing looking options at the bar where about fourteen ciders were on offer. This seemed as good a place as any to start. I don’t know much about cider but after this I may have to branch out a bit. Certainly it beats the bottled Woodchuck that is ubiquitous back home.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden rosy color warms the glass. The nose is that of acres of apple orchards in late fall after a morning rainstorm with the mud still fresh on the ground.

Flavor / Palate - Malty polished pennies, honeycrisp (or similar) sweet apples, and a full body make this a beer that shouldn’t just be gulped down. The tang of the acidic cider lingers for a bit. It is a nice alternative to the usual beers and provided a change of pace while on vacation.

worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - OCT 27, 2011
Opaque dark yellow almost orange. Stong acid apple smell, rotten. Heavy juice type body, watery. Tangy sour taste thats a little too strong. Flat vinigar flavour with a dry aftertaste. Pear maybe. Too strong and hard to drink

veryplayful (1) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011 does not count
Just tried this Cider today, this has been well worth the wait, much of somerset has been traveled and many cider’s have been tasted. This cider is quite dark in appearance, almost to the point of being full bodied, which in turn adds great flavor with a very strong but very nice fruit flavor. This is a must try cider for anyone in the area, and the man who makes it is very welcoming, this man wins awards and does not even advertise.

Ungstrup (29084) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Cask. A hazy light golden cider with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of apples as well as light notes of vinegar. The flavor is sweet and acidic with strong notes of apples and applecore, leading to a tart apply finish.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Cask - Planet Thanet Festival 2010, Margate. Poured a cloudy,golden orange with no head and light carbonation. Crisp and fresh dry apple aromas, good sweetness. Juicy apples, some dry woodiness and a delicate tartness. Really refreshing, medium in body but a real thirst quencher. A cracking cider!
