sound67 (761) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Deep yellow golden, clear. No head. ***
Nose: Strong apples and vinegar. Mild oaky note. ***
Mouthfeel: Medium body, still watery. Soft carbonation. ***
Taste: Intro of dry, tart apples, mild vinegar. A little more sweetness, fruitiness inn the middle, abruptly leading into a dry-as-dust finish. Aftertaste of musty apples, lemon. ***
Impressions: Well-crafted dry cider with intermittent fruity notes, very refreshing. Surprisingly light, hides its alcohol very well indeed. Superior dry cider may not be to the taste of cider fans who like things fruity and accessible. More like a dry wite wine, actually.

Bottle from Walsgrave Aldi. Headless pale yellow. Mildly dank fruit peel and calamine aroma. Bright, lively and dull with more mellow dank tart fruit and hints of almond booziness, Chewits and distant oak. Easy to drink but not worth the units. apickles (578) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Light golden in colour sparkling with no head. No much nose. Taste strong apples quite tart a little drying on the mouth. Pretty strong alcohol tasting stuff. The_Osprey (8452) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015

50cl bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley - 2013 vintage and 6.5% ABV. A pale amber pour with a light fizz; intense, fragrant, appley aroma; smooth and full bodied, with lots of fruit, some oak and honey; then a dry finish that’s deeply satisfying with some earthy tones. Very good indeed. jfb (6509) - GERMANY - SEP 22, 2014

Bottle from Tesco Extra Aylesbury, Bucks, consumed at home, Wednesday 5th February 2014. Pours warm gold pretty reasonable clarity. Soft but a good clacky and tart appley bite, the initial softness almost leads you in with a false sense of security but this cider has a good fruity appley zappiness. I very much enjoyed this and would happily have again. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5 tommann (3851) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
