Bottle. Hazy Yellow Gold in colour. Massive lasting foamy white head. Excellent lacing. Fruity; tangy apple. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; malts, caramel. An apple flavoured beer NOT a cider. Bittersweet apple fruity hoppy throughout. Easy drinking. Liked this. A refreshing crisp apple fruity bitter. (2016-10-03)

Rune (11637) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2016
Cask, half pint, shared with Finn at Brass Monkey. Patchy white head, clingy lacing, clear golden-brown body. Mild aroma of apples and and pale malts. Taste of apples, berry fruit and pale malts. Mid-dry ending. Rather thin in-mouth feel. Easy going (Plymouth 22.09.2016).

Sigmund (6950) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2016
500 ml bottle, as Hunterís Crispy Pig Speciality Ale, from Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. ABV is 4%. Brewed with Boadicea hops and apple essence. Deep golden colour, large white head. Strong aroma of apple essence / apple candy. The flavour is slightly acidic and fruity with notes of apples, but also with distinct hops and a bitter finish. Okay, and something out of the ordinary, but hardly a beer that will be on my priority list to buy again.

Bottle at United Lounge, Heathrow. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is malts, caramel, floral. Taste similar of apples, malts and toffee. Finish is hoppier. Pretty good.

Bottle from Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. Pours hazy deep golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of apples, strawberries and malts. Taste is dominated of red apples, citric berries, dry berry finish, crisp fresh mouthfeel, high carbonated. Good one.

DabblingDuck (2) - ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016 does not count
Lovely easy drinking, taste of apples and tingly on the tongue. A little crisp and tangy, a unique flavour and certainly a good Summer drink.

Bottle thanks to mum and dad, bought back from Devon. Amber beer with small head. Aroma of apples and caramel. Taste is apples, caramel and some light malts with a touch of hop bitterness. I quite enjoyed the hybrid taste. Good.

Bottle. Golden pour with small white head. Distinct apple aroma on the nose. Malty notes with apple on the palate. Pleasant and interesting.

DruncanVeasey (8059) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Lager gold slicked with white. Sweet nose of bramley and polished pine anticipating sweetness. Then the disconnect: bitter, not apple-dominated, almond-hinting, way more beer than cider, hints of shrub. Vacant finish. Could use some malt sweetness or honey. Better than expected but an odd fusion of incongruous elements that isnít wholly satisfying.
