Bottle from Beers of Europe.
Appearance - golden amber with no head and no head.
Nose - sour apples. Apple skins.
Taste - more of the same. Some straw and wood too.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - lovely properly made cider. sound67 (761) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Deep golden yellow, clear, no head.
Nose: Lots of ripe apples, some vinegar. Hints of oak. ***
Mouthfeel: Lighto to medium body. No carbonation whatsoever. ***
Taste: Less sweet than the aroma suggested: Apple peel, some vanilla, some oak. Same in the middle, with the wood notes getting strongher slowly but steadily. Finish is still apple peel, oak. Aftertaste dry, of musty apples and a hint of vanilla. ***
Impressions: Fruity and smooth cider that, frankly, would be even better with a modicum of carbonation. As is, it feels more like medium-sweet apple juice with oak and alcohol. digitalviking (99) - - MAR 19, 2016
2014 vintage. Quite bitter, kind of a woody taste but not a particularly desirable wood. Slight carbonation despite being a still cider. The_Osprey (8211) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
500ml bottle as ’Henney’s Vintage Still Cider 2014’, 6.5%, no BB stated. Clear orange, still, small bubbly white head doesn’t endure. Aroma is sweet apple, some strawberry, candy floss. Body is rounded, tingly carbonation, tooth coating sugars. Taste is simple apple, sugar, tangy, semisweet, light acidity.

Cask at Angleterre, Helsinki. Colour is clear golden with very small bubbly white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, apples, sweetness and dryness. Juicy. Benzai (15921) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Thompson, Niilstrong and Bobson. Clear golden color like apple juice. Smell and taste apples, apple peel. Moderately dry finish. A bit boring, but drinkable. Bobson (103) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
Sampled thanks to bottle from Benzai. Taste is okay but a bit sour. The taste is a bit better than that. Not really bad or good.

Bottle @ and shared by benzai... small head rapidly gone.. clear golden colour... smell fermenting apples.. taste apples some yeasting... Niilstrong (23) - Best, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
Bedankt Benzai voor deze nieuwe ervaring. Smaakt meer naar een goedkope witte wijn dan naar een goed biertje. Appelsap met alcohol, wel droge nasmaak.
