Bottle. Golden colour, medium carbonation , medium sweet/dry mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. Smooth finish. Not bad at all. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
500ml : in a pint : (2015 vintage) 8% is the reason I bought this . This is ratebeer.com , not ratecider.com - let’s try and keep ratebeer fun for everyone. Nose is a little tart , acidic , light cheeses and horse shit complexity. Sugary alcohol undercurrent. Dull gold . A nice sweet and dry mix. Quite sweet infact but light dry leathery vibes too . It’s a pretty agreeable Cider but it’s not as fun as rural scrumpy or tramp within the Cider family.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Plymouth. 2015 Vintage. Deeper golden coloured cider. Its strength is not overly evident although its potent apple isn’t quite as stated in its taste, but it’s still flavoursome all the same. tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with low carbonation. Aroma is light sour apple juice. Taste has dry apple skins. Woody finish. Very dry mouthfeel. Really drinkable for the strength. mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
Strong aroma. Perfumey, floral apple aroma. Soft carbonation. Flavour starts sweet but there’s enough complexity and dryness to make it interesting. minutemat (5500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
500ml bottle from Tesco Markthalle, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold. Syrupy sweet aroma. Taste is mushy overripe apple, sweet apple sugar, light brown sugar, toffee, with a crisp alcohol bite. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015
500ml bottle from (I think) Tesco. Pours like irn bru. Vibrant orange, no head, light carbonation. Aromas of cooked apple, marmalade, light sour apples. Taste is bitter Bramleys, light sour, green apple peel. Quite thin. Tannic, but sweet, jammy finish.
