jfb (6575) - GERMANY - JUN 19, 2012
(draught) pours a clear golden colour with no head. aroma of leather and custard, with a hint of medicinal bands, green apples and barnyard. flavour is initially very sweet, lots of apple sauce and custard, leading into a semi-dry medicinal leathery finish. medium-bodied with no carbonation.

olsvammel (7274) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2012
On tap at City Arms in Cardiff. It poured a clear golden liquid without a head. Very fruity with yeast and apples. Like drinking fresh apple juice, but with alcohol.

Clear golden cider, no head. Aroma: bubble gum, wood, cough syrup. MF: low carbon, medium body, dry mouth feel. Taste: woody, tobacco, bit smoky, sweet, white grapes, apple juice. Aftertaste: dry woody, tobacco, white wine, green apples. Not the worst cider I ever had.

sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2011
Cask - The Glasshouse (JDW), Norwich. Poured a clear, dark golden amber with no head. Sweet apples dominate, touches of oak on both nose and palate. Soft, smooth mouthfeel, no real finish just a hint of apple skin bitterness at the end. Deceptively drinkable at 7.2% but lacks oomph in terms of flavour also.

3.4
worldbeertaste (1806) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2011
Cask - Light amber colour. Green apple and vinigar smell. Thin watery body, no carbonation. Sour apple and citrus with a more developed taste. Dry tartness and woody finish.

3.5
leaparsons (10712) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Golden with no carbonation. Aromas are earthy apple with caramel and vinegar. Quite agricultural with lemon and yeast. Flavours are clean apple juice with tart citrus and lots of dry, woody notes. Some cheesy mustiness with a dry, peppery alcohol finish. Pretty good.

2.2
Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
On cask at the Counting House in Glasgow. Pours a dark golden colour with an aroma of apple and oak. Very dry with apple, oak, caramel and candy sugar flavours. Too sweet for me.

3.4
markas101 (2489) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Cask, The Francis Newton, Sheffield, UK. Wetherspoon Ale Festival. Deep golden colour, sweet apple aroma. Smooth, zero alcohol on the flavour, dangerous for a +7% cider. Finish is medium sweet, then a general cooked apple ending.
