Bottle of the 2015 vintage. A golden amber coloured, lightly effervescent cider. Classic scrumpy aromas, sour, acetic apple, farmyard, and vegetal. Dry mouthfeel. A tart taste to start, plenty of sour apple, along with a vegetal flavour. There is a sweeter background flavour in the finish. danlo (3145) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017

Bottle. Golden colour, medium carbonation , medium sweet/dry mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. Smooth finish. Not bad at all. Gary (2035) - West 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. ManVsBeer (10806) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
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 (3859) - 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 (6882) - 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.
