Sampled on June 10, 2014, thanks to Nisse666! Bottle 33 cl.
As "Ralph’s Old Badland Premium Welsh Cider" also marked "Med Still" and 7% ABV.
Clear golden color, very small bubbly head. Sweet to tart, apple, a bit of sulphur and butter scent. Sweet to tart, buttery, sulphur taste. Buttery aftertaste. Weak flat mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is harsh like.
Smells rather nice, taste does not follow up, falls well short. Could likely improve for my taste with some CO2 that lowers the pH a bit as well.

Bottle 330ml. clear glass @ home.

[ As Ralphs Old Badland Welsh Cider Dry Still ].
[ Courtesy of Fin ]. ABV: 7.0%. Clear medium to light orange yellow color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate apple, tart apple, horse blanket - barnyard, sulfur, toffee - butter notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and light acidic with a average duration, sulfur, wood, tart, dry apple, acrid notes. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat and quit dry. IMO a bit odd cider - funky ! [20110301]

Cask @ Nottingham BF. Well this certainly didn’t live up to it’s name, my first ever drain pour perry. Pale, hazy gold, overly sweet with some cinnamon hints. Both Mes and I agreed it was like sweet glue. Maybe it had gone off by the last day of the fest coz it was pretty rank.
