COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This cider, which is made from top quality apples, has been allowed to mature in old oak vats for up to six months and then specially selected for Henry Weston, great-grandson of the founder, as the very best of the year's vintages.

suurjuust (1881) - ESTONIA - OCT 18, 2011
2010 vintage. Pale gold, no lasting head to speak of. Nose is sour apples, acidic notes, yeast, wooden notes. The taste is less complex than the nose would suggest - mainly acidic apples, with some wooden-yeasty undertones. It’s good, but not great.

BeerBaboon (1774) - FINLAND - OCT 14, 2011
Clear, pale golden. Earthly aroma of apples and yeast. The flavour and palate are not as good as you could assume based on the aroma. Sweet, apply and dry. It’s a good cider.

hawthorne00 (2878) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2011
Clear gold, medium bead. Aroma of mellow apples with a little wood but no tartness. But there is a little there in the mouth because the apples are quite sweet but get cleaned up before a touch of vanillaish oak. The wood is pretty prominent after a while. The cider is OK but plain beforehand.

tommann (3012) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours pale gold with medium carbonation. Aroma is slightly sour and a touch acidic apples. Taste has some wood to start. Dry, sour apple finish. Tastes a bit too tramp juice-esque.

MikaJuhani (28) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Lobby Bar Vaasa. Soft applegarden aroma. Nice golden color with small sparkles. Quite rich sweet/bitter applejuice taste. Some alcohol comes trough. Not so longlasting taste. Smooth palate. Not a special but ok!

Ernest (6748) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is notes of pineapple and apple. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The pineapple note is distinctive and fun, but overall there’s just not much to this. Sweet and simple. Hogan’s Medium is the easy winner of tonight’s cider showdown.
