500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass. Head disappears immediately, light lager colour with a little fizz. Pleasant cider aroma, nice and fruity. Sour and dry finish, well matured apples. A reasonable drink, but ultimately I prefer the taste of a beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
2010 Vintage A few seconds of white foam, then very clear yellow-golden liquid. Apples, and a sourness that smells acetic, woody, not unlike Oud Bruin (with apples,). Tart, but not acidic, very dry apples with little restsweetness; faraway glimpse of wry bitterishness. Bit watery, thinnish MF; falling flat; little or no carbonation. Rather decent, certainly better than expected.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 50 cl bottle vintage 2010 @ Kerho
Aroma has raw apple, some earthy and leathery notes. Flavour has apple, some oaky notes and hints of vanilla. Expected a bit better, feels like 5% stuff. I like more my ciders (even) more dry.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Comes as: "Waitrose Reserve Cider". Pours a clear golden with a white head. Spicy apple aroma. Medium body, lowish carbonation, apple, sulphur and a solid astringency leaving quite some tannins on my teeth. 090212

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a rough, dissipating head. Tart apple aroma. Medium body, quite sweetish with distinct apple flavours. Very soft and pleasant, the alcohol is definitely there but yet quite discreet. 180506
