COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional Scrumpy is a hearty and wholesome STILL, CLOUDY strong cider, fermented in our 200 year old oak vats. Sufficiently strong to satisfy but not too sweet to smother the mature flavour of the traditional bitter sweet apples.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, - JUN 23, 2012
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.

teorn88 (2822) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Cask at Market Porter, London Bridge. It pours a pale straw colour with basically no head. Aroma is lightly earthy with a crisp tannic character. Lots of apple character. Gently acidic and refreshing.

olio (6512) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Cask @ O’hara’s Freehouse, Tampere.
Pours clear golden color with no head. Aroma of nettle, grass, lemon and apples. Flavour is the same with some herbal notes. Refreshing, but that’s it.

tommann (2857) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2013
Keg at the Mug House, Bewdley. Pours a hazy light lemon with zero carbonation. Aroma is tart apples and a touch of cheese. Taste has sweet lemon to start and a tart apple finish.

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

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2012
From bag in a box at The Hengler’s Circus. Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Aroma is citric apples, light yeasty note. Mild sweet, citric and towards a tart, yet crisp apple fruity finish.

imdownthepub (10647) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Draught at a Wetherspoons. Greenish gold with no head. Well despite the bumph, this was sweet. Sweet apple juice with a light alcohol note. Unimpressed.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
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.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 30, 2012
Nice one after two years of no real ales or ciders. It was quite sweet and interestingly cloudy. NIce peel features and aftertaste.
