jookos (7155) - FINLAND - MAR 17, 2014
[email protected] Copper red. Musty ripe apple zest, some cinnamon, vanilla. Medim full body. Zest&seeds, some tannins, but not much and quite well covered by sweetness. Has a bunch of sugars, slight syrupy finish. Quite alright, a bit murky, nothing spectacular. Some rubber in finish.

AshtonMcCobb (7027) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2014
On tap at the White Lady. Appearance - amber with no bubble to speak of and no head. Nose - apple sauce but not overly mushed. Taste - fresh apple with an apple juice tang. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good cider in my favourite strong still style.

s_hartshorne (2840) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Poured out of a box six chimneys wakeield. Aroma is slight apples. Taste is sweet apples and spice light tart finish. Medium body still carbonation. Very good traditional cider.

apickles (618) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Cask in the Penny Black, Northwich. Cloudy strong cider but relatively soft taste which is unexpected. A bit tart with a slightly foamy top. Slight after taste.

wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Draught at the Hope Tap, Reading. Light amber. Very sweet economy apple juice up front. Growing vanilla gives a nice smoothness. A little oakiness and a hint of nail varnish remover in the finish. Quite tasty, but a bit too sweet for me.

EdKing (2663) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Gravity at GBBF 2013. Clear amber, light small foam head, bubbly lacing and head stays. Nose is pungent apple tannin, earthy, aged apple skins, alcohol. Taste is sweetish apple, juicy, refreshing, apple juice, stoney, earthy. Deceptive because it’s quite strong. Not much dryness, but fruity.

TimE (6259) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2013
Perfectly flat, lifeless carbonation. Great fruity character backed underneath by oak, raisins stewed apples. Smooth. Very quaffable for the strength. Oak works very well with this cider.

SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
[email protected] bellweather, wednesbury. Amber cider, still. Aroma of dry appleskins. Taste is medium, a little tart Apple, some mild spice and soft Apple pulp. A very good cider.

mr_h (6059) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2013
From a box in the fridge by gravity at Prestwick Pioneer - clear copper coloured, no head, strong sweet apple aroma, very sweet apple flavour, medium body, very refreshing and easy to drink

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
Half, 7.3% abv, cask at Vernon Arms. Copper coloured body, headless, no lacing. Aroma of apples. Sweet, half dry, taste of apples offset by momentary tartness to the aftertaste. Medium bodied. Cider is not a favourite of mine, but alright to drink now and then. This one was ok, a tad too sweet though (Liverpool 08.04.2013)
