Cask. Poured a hazy pale yellow with no head. Sweet & sour at the fire with a pithy, rindy bitterness at the back. Light to medium body, a delicate spritz on the tongue finishing with a lightly bitter lingering tartness.

Plastic jug (Black Door, Helsinki)
Sharp sour apple aroma. Classic scrumpy. Cloudy. MEdium dry bite. Almost watery palate, so easily drinkable. In some ways itís a bit weak, no alcohol at all, Iíve never been a fan of 6% and lower scrumpies, but I can cope with this. Nice dry palate - crisp. Bacony finish - yum!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpull at The Market Porter. Clear bright gold (cloudy? Not a chance) with a small and lasting fizzy white head. Atoma is ripe golden apple, sweet, with plenty of acidic funk - taste has just a hint of sourness, mostly a mild fairly sweet simple apple taste with a wee bit of tartness and slightly sour white plonk. Fairly thick, still and only a little acidic, it finishes quickly and leaves little lingering impression. Ah well. Not bad.
