Gaymers County Range.

This cider is crafted to reflect the character of the best cider apples of Somerset. Its is therefore, a classic Somerset Cider: Bittersweet apples flavours combined with astringency from natural tannins.
Somerset County is a light amber cider with aromas of green apple and lime. A lively and refreshing mouthfeel that combines the fruit flavour with a little dryness in a medium length fruit hit.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - FEB 9, 2009
Golden hue with no head. Weak appley aroma. Standard medium dry cider taste. Not much else to report. A pleasant enough drink.

ManVsBeer (11168) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle from Saintsbury’s, Halifax. Paler golden colour. Crisp enough in the palate with a dry texture where the apple flavour lingers long. Fair aroma of the fruit.

Leighton (22814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear gold with a few bubbles for a head. Nice apple nose, light funk and sweat. Good flavor, light dank and juicy apples, mild dryness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Dryish finish with pleasant apple notes, not too sweet, very lightly dank. Good cider overall.

rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from Rhythm & Booze in Brigg. Gold, no head and low condition. Trace apple fruitiness and a touch of oak in the nose, muted sweet apple noes in the mouth with a faint hint of barnyard and a little tartness, a little dry bitterness creeping into the otherwise fruity finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, no head. Arom is sweet apples, some mild vinegar, vanilla and mild tartness. Flavour is rather similar ending in a quite dry way. A bit too vinegary to be relly pleasant

harrisoni (19536) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle at Chriso Easter Tasting 2012. pale gold slight white head. Appley cider. Stewed fruit some dryness. Fine

cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Pleasing, orchardy nose with a hint of spiced apple promise. Pours a pure cider gold. Flavour is well balanced, sweet and gently sharp. The lingering flavour is medium dry and moreish although the mouthfeel is a little thing so it doesn’t hang around for long. Quite nice.

Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2011
Well balanced between sweet and dry. Served cool in a small glass, It was quite refreshing and had more flavour than the other Devon version that I tried.

fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2010

Clear medium to dark orange yellow color with a average, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy apple, vanilla notes.
