2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour was medium to light golden with a light apple aroma. Body was light with a mostly dry, but somewhat sweet character. Tasted like there was just a little sugar addition, for the alcohol content was 8.2%. The apple flavors were quite nice, not being too tart, sour, or sweet, however the alcohol was a bit strong. Decent.

Bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours a clear birght yellow/ golden color. Aroma is apples with some mineral and slight musty notes. Flavor is fruity yeastiness with a slight saltiness at the end. Medium to light palate, fairly dry. Nice drinker, but would expect a tad more complexity at 8.2% abv.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle from my local Co-Op, the 2013 Vintage. A really well balanced cider. A pale straw colour with moderate carbonation; oaky aroma, but some fresh apple too; crisp green apple taste, but softened and sweetened by the wood; and a smooth, satidfying finish. the alcohol is well hidden, but provides a gentle warmth.

Henry surely is the godfather of cider. The unassuming label shows what looks like a sweet old man of years gone by. But in reality that sweet old man is a double hard b****** that is going to give you the time of your life! he’s insane, he’s wild, he’s the instigator. This cider tastes great, I have drank a lot of scrumpy and mainstream cider in my time and this is the happy medium. The best thing about this cider is the fact that it doesn’t seem to contain any alcohol in the taste, there is no after taste either. But it kicks like a mule, one min you’re fine, next minute Henry has punched you square in the jaw and taken your legs out!!
