Jug, 7.5% at KØ10. Quite citric aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Good citric flavour. Plasticky aftertaste, but OK.

Presented in a stricking 2 liter glass bottle. I drank from the spiritual home of cider (Somerset) while visiting my Dad who relocated to the rural life after my mom divorced him .
The bottle label with a horse and cart pulling apples sets the rustic ,coutry vibe nicly.
This aint funky , wild scrumpy like the bottle would like you to believe. Resembles apple juice in color...with a subtle rich apple skin and apple flesh aroma...hay and sugars . Drank down with some waxines like you get from apple skin...acidity and dryness, then juicy sugary sweetness ...some woodiness in a h20 finish. Aint nothing like the crazy farm scrumpy but plesant .

bottle from waitrose, for cooking gammon. even though i bought it soley for cooking, i couldn’t help but to pickle the chef a bit as well. considering the stuff is 6 quid for two litres, it’s not that bad. yellow and milky cloudy, it looks like straight from your weird next door neighbours vat... smells pleasant enough of apples and only has a hint of cardboard and booze. palate’s quite watery and flat with a stringend apple sourness in the end. strong, appely and definitely good enough for my chasseur!

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2009
(Bottle from Morrisons) Me and my friend saw this and couldn’t resist being ridiculous with it. The whole bottle is brilliant, and was remarkably cheap for what I knew to be a good cider brewers product. Shared between us out of the bottle (at a party). Appley aroma, although I can’t really rate it due to bottle drinking. Taste was very smooth, almost like apple juice smoothness. No harsh alcohol which could be expected at 7.5%. Tasty actually, quite appley and very drinkable. Dangerously drinkable. A good product.

Cask @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a deep amber, no head. Aroma is sweet, light red apples, caramel and dryness. Low carbonation - actually practically none. Very dry and sticky to my teeth. Sweet and lightly funky tart. Good apples.

Aroma is cider apples westons yeast a bit of hard underrip apples and some floural notes. Taste is similar the flouralness comes through like a strole in a flower field with a huge hat scooping up crickets.

My first cider on here. Flagon from Sainsbury’s. Cloudy golden yellow. Aroma of apples, oak, yeast and alcohol. Nice and sour with a dry finish. Not bad.
