Served still from the cellar at the Bell, Wendens Ambo. Deep mid- to dark gold with a tint of orange. Clear, flat and - dare I say it - slightly shiny. The aroma is light and, while pleasant, is distinctly un-appley. Cherry candy, along with pear (OK another orchard fruit so close) and a hint of bubblegum. Full taste but too sweet for me. A hint of apple skin bitter in the finish, but the sweetness remains slightly sickly. It does however leave an enticing tartness on the lips. Not an ideal cider but certainly enjoyable. Doesnt taste anywhere near its strength.

The_Osprey (7811) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Cask at JDW. Hazy orange, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is apple cider vinegar, apple juice, potato peel, sour fermenting apples. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apple juice, touch of spice, soft booze, watery, a little sour. Meh. This has an unpleasant sourness, but forgivable overall. The least offensive of the three I tried here.

Martin243 (1125) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Pint at the Schooner Gateshead. A big brown glass of drink. Pleasant apple and farmyard aroma. Alas, (and its a personal thing), far too sweet for my taste. Too sweet and sticky to be refreshing, which is what I was looking for. Could be a good winter drink with roast pork.

jookos (6421) - FINLAND - JUN 3, 2013
Cask. Clear copper. Fresh picked reddish apples on nose, really nice. A bit of zest/seeds there also. Body is medium full, some oiliness, dry, with mouth drying tannins. But lovely. Red lush apples, sweet, but with the right acidity to balance it out. Dry, with a mouth drying finish.

FatPhil (15796) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2013
Draught (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Lovely full aroma, sweet and appley, but some slightly picked or marinated onions too. Nice bold orange, still. What a kick in the mouth - shivers down the spine! Nice phenolic aspects too, a sweet smokey sausage at times. So full, and also so refreshing. No sign of 6.5%. Great cider, one of GyDs best clear ones.
