3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Clear golden-orange cider. The apple flavouring is distinctive, mostly dry, heavy tasting and with a sour finish. It’s strength is evident in both aroma and taste, with a sugariness in this respect.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Pix. Pours amber with a few suds around the rim. Mild toffee apple aroma. The taste is moderately sweet stewed apple to begin with, with a touch of acetone before a dry finish. Light and refreshing. Pretty good cider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Musty apple core notes, impressive for the 5.5% in the glass. Reassuring scrumpy murk to the body, pouring with a surprising amount of carbonation but only slim bubbles settling at the top. Sandwich of refreshment and mulching country cider fermentation, twisting a lot of red apple skin into the palate. Nothing cheap about any aspect of this and the tradition rings through on every sip. Very sticky sweet dry finish, with a moreish hangover. Glad it’s in a 750ml as this it be mighty tidy all round as a Gucci cider. (Followed up by the superior, un-rateable, fruit infused "Sloe and Elderberry Fruit Cider")

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l clear swing-top bottle that shows the red glow of the cider already. Clear, slightly hazy red-golden colour, tiney white bubbles on top. Slightly sparkling, slightly sweet with a punch of tart apple flavours. Very nice indeed.
