rodbod (340) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2017
Third of a pint at Paisley Beer Festival 2017. Very disappointing. Yes, its got clean apple juice flavours but sadly thats about it. Very low tannins, no funk, undistinguished acidity. Humdrum

minutemat (5148) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Draught at shrewsbury hotel. Pours copper. Rich caramel aroma. Quite a rich super sweet taste perhaps too much. Rather boozy & syrupy. Not really a pint-worthy cider.
