750ml bottle @ the office. ABV 5.0%. Pours a hazy copper colour with a thin white head. Nose is semi sweet apples, apple skins, and some funk. Flavour is a nice light apple character with some funk. It is semi dry and has a slight bitterness to the finish. Very tasty! Ferris (16304) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle - Stone fruit, sweet cooked apple. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Peel and funky fleshy notes with a decent finish. Not bad. mcberko (18600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
750mL bottle, pours a hazy bright golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of honey-like sweetness, champagne effervescence and grape must. Flavour is bone dry, yet somehow has some honey-like sweetness followed by some grape must, champagne, and funk. Rather oxidized, but it’s suitable. Palate is highly carbonated, but fitting the elegance. Very good. KyotoLefty (10610) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2017
75 cl bottle, bouche. Juicy apples, spice, some caramle and a touch of butter. Light citrus. Nice nose. Complex. Nice dryness, bit tart, green apple, pits, tanins. Dry, mineral finish with a touch of citrus and apple skin. Good balance, refreshing and crisp. Like it. kajser27 (1963) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 28, 2016
Clear, golden colored, fizzy, small+ white lasting head. Aroma is of apples, strong apple peel, bit funk, some wood. Taste is medium- sweet apple juice, apple peel, bit woody, light funk, very dry finish, very light to no tartness. Light bodied, average carbonation, watery. Refreshing and light, summer stuff!

Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, courtesy of Bob (cheers Bob) Friday 8th August 2014 Pours warm gold, pleasantly refreshing sweet apple pie cider. A reasonable sweet cider it is a little dry but mostly sweet juicy apples. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4 coranc (35) - IRELAND - JUL 21, 2014
750ml bottle, cork and cage opening. Clear amber / golden pour with sweet apple aroma. Dry finish. No overpowering taste - like everything has mellowed and blended. Enjoyed this. beastiefan2k (4076) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2014
750mL cork and cage bottle. I only bought this because JoeMcPhee and Can gave it good ratings. I should have listened to the average. Aroma smells like Motts apple juice. A little bit of sweet apple skins to slightly offset the strong apple. Just a little too much sweetness. Flavor sweet apple up front but ends decently with not dry but way less sweet finish. The strong carbonation helps offset the apple. I feel like the cider starts in a bad place but everything else pushes it forward.notalush (5910) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014

Thanks to Eugene for sharing - smells kind of "juicy," sweet, like Mott’s applesauce - flavor is simple, but not as sweet as the nose suggests - there is a moderate, balancing acidity - some light calcium/mineral through the middle - finish has some mild phenolics - it’s alright, but a bit simple and sweet. sulawang (1189) - - APR 6, 2014
Visual: Sealed with a twisty top + real cork. Be careful this one is a gusher when opened. Pours a clear deep golden orange with a smallish mildy lasting bubbly head, clusters of fast activity, a thin layer of retention.
Nose: fruity apple juice but without much sugar, airy and slightly acidic (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: dry, fizzy, yeasty
Mid-palate: (lvl-0)-fruity-yet-dry sweetness, medium acidity, (MAIN) oaked apple, yeasty, light lemon citrus
Finish: tart & dry apple finish.
Summary: This one is deceptively dry considering the rich appearance and lively activity. I appreciate the burst of natural apple flavour but actually prefer my ciders somewhat sweeter. Thus I can’t say I love this one.
