Box @ Stable, Birmingham. Pours murky orange with a musty apple fruit aroma. Taste is rather dry, lightly sour with a medicinal touch.

gegwilson (3837) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bag in a box at Newtfest 2016. Pleasany sweet apple aroma. The taste starts with sweet apple juice before a long dry finish. A little watery, but OK.

Scopey (16548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle from the cider shop in Cheddar. It pours hazy bright orange. The nose is earthy, musty, tangy apple, apple skin, wood, vanilla custard, farmyard and hay. The taste is dry, funky, farmyard, touch of manure, oak, leather, farmyard, vanilla, sour orange, apple pie, tannins and light astringency with firm, dry finish. Medium body and flat. Pretty dry, but that’s what I like. Decent oak aged scrumpy.

Bottle in minehead. Cloudy yellow still slightly grey. Aroma is nice fresh sharp apple and parmesan. Flavour is horsey funk, cheese and apples. Medium sweet sugary palate. Tasty.

leaparsons (10906) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Glass jug. Orange, gold with no carbonation. Aromas are earthy and woody with apple skin n and peppery yesst. Farmyard character with a light mustiness. Spicy with earthy apple and caramel lingering in the background. Flavours are very dry, woody and pithy with green apple tart notes and lots of tannins and yeast. Peppery and arid on the finish. A nice traditional dry cider.

Polypin, Rich’s Cider. Hazy orange in appearance. Aromas are earthy apple with oak barrel and barnyard notes. Trace floral lavender with lemon and vinegar. Flavours are dry and woody with earthy apple juice and skin. Quite herbal with floral notes. Dry on the finish. As easy to drink as the medium version.

SarkyNorthener (5075) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
From barrel at the Minehead Cider Company shop. Cloudy orange/yellow cider. Aroma of dry crushed apples. Taste is apple peel, a touch of tartness and dry with hints of wood. Still cider. Very nice.

ALLOVATE (3095) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2012
Out the all class flagon with a jovial Somerset farmer heralding the label. Room temperature as it should be. Still, deep copper body, awe inspiring for a cider. Good clarity and radiant in the lights. All apple pulp, core, peel and limb on the nose; dry, rough, woody with inklings of topsoil, cowpat and bay leaf - hmmm! Very dry, the oak shows as big one party pooper. Sandy in feel, light in body and subtle in flavour. Not much fruit here; oaken, more-so earthy, barnyardy and yeasty with low peel and core on offer late. Good length of pips and oak if that is the going thing. Different, but too much barrel ageing has marred this one! (Rich’s farm shop, Cheddar Gorge, Cheddar, Somerset)
