hawthorne00 (4196) - Melbourne, - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle, 9C. Gold with some lazing bubbles. Aroma of tart and mellow apples and their skins, wood. Sweetish with fresh apples, a little cooked, drying skins, light wood. Good balance - the sweetness is fleshy but the finish is dry and just a bit zingy. Good.

BeardedAvenger (1274) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2018
Bottle at PoW, Farnborough. Musky apple peel aroma. Bright gold. Bubbly. Lively creamy white head. I usually sweet before some sourness finishes proceedings off. Quite sugary. Juicy. Light bodied. Thin but with a slickness to it. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. Only ordered it because it was a tick but actually a juicy refreshing cider. Sweeter than expected. Good stuff.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A clear deep golden cider. Aroma of dry apples, not too sweet, sulfits. Taste of sweet and dry apples, sulfits, medium carbonation.

Erzengel (9759) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017
Many thanks to Minutemat for this bottle. Fresh fruity apple nose. The cider starts fresh sweetish with sourish parts. Nice and refreshing, hints of sweetness there. The apples are ripe and fruity, not too deep with a nice and fresh sour-fruity appley aftertaste.

The_Osprey (9690) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Clear bottle at Anona’s small holding. As Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon Welsh Cider , 6.5%. Clear orange, sparkling, very little head. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is sugary syrupy apple, tart apple, slight elderflower, semi dry finish, bit gassy and acidic on my stomach. Alright but not really my thing. (5-4-5-3-12=2.9)

EugeneStraver (324) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2017
20170713 Proeflokaal te Delft (Nl); 50 cl bottle. A thin white foam layer on a dark yellow coloured cider. A nice aroma of red sweet apples. The taste is not really sweet (enough for a good body) with a very good fruity apple taste. Light white grapes and a small bitter. Good balance.

tommann (4026) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet apple and pastry. Taste is medium dry with apple on the finish. Dry aftertaste.

Camons (13500) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2017
Cask @ St. Jude brewery Tawern, Ipswich. Pours golden, no head. Aroma of apples, light sweet, green apples, wood, little nutty. Thin to medium body, flat carbonation, light sweet finish. 150217

FinnIckler (978) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle from ciderandmore.de .Pours clear yellow. Nose is acidic apple, but a weird boozy touch. Palate is sooo smooth, the carbonation accumulates at the tip of the tongue. Nice medium dry apple, some oak, some vanilla. Great cider, very smooth, one of the best I’ve had yet.
