LazyPyro (1798) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin bright white head. Aroma: reminiscent of Sourz Apple but very sweet, artificial, I get no malt or hop notes at all. Taste: very sweet artificial apple, the finish is very bitter and very metallic and chemically, like someone has sprayed bleach in my mouth, again absolutely no malt or hops detected. Couldn’t manage more than a few sips of this. I really hope this was just a bad bottle and it’s not supposed to taste like this...

Bottle from Cooperative. Pours hazy orange with slight sediment and rapidly disappearing bright white head. Aroma strongly apple, with good acidity. Crisp.

Cask @ The Grove, Huddersfield. Clear golden with a small head. Full with its apple aroma, but bland in its apple taste.

john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
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)

Fra fat på Brass Monkey, Plymouth 22 Sep 16. Gyldengulbrun. Filmskum. Aroma som bringebærsaft. Smaken tyggegummi. Kunstig. Ikke god.

Rune (13727) - Tromsø, 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 (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2016
500 ml bottle, as Hunter’s 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.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2016
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.

gunnar (9922) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 22, 2016
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 (3) - 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.
