gegwilson (3519) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle. Blond with no head. Fairly mild sweet apple aroma. The taste is pleasant sweet apple juice to start before a slightly dry finish. The honey is not a prominent flavour. OK.

sm89walt (1992) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2012
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured with a fizzy but quickly disappearing white head & a clear golden amber body. Good red/green apple balance with some underpinning sugary honey sweetness aroma-wise. Similar on the tongue but with less honey presence. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a medium length sweet/sour finish.

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Light honey yellow colour with thin carbonation. Regular cider smell. Crisp. Light body. Sour apple taste and a strong dry acid center with a very faint honey aftertaste.

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2009
Bottle bought at Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Lively pour, golden colour and moderate carbonation. Tart aroma of apples with some honeyed sweetness. Flavour was dry, with plenty of apples, woodiness, and yeast, smoothed by the honey, finishing with some more tartness. The honey gave this a bit more character. Good.

wheresthepath (2206) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
[500ml bottle from a farm shop somewhere in Devon] Dry and tart at first with a crisp fizz. The honey leaves a lingering creamy sweetness. Very refreshing, yet more-ish. Im no fan of cider normally, but I liked this very much indeed!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2008
Golden yellow cider with a nice apple aroma. Quite heavy flavour and mouthfeel, lacks some acidity but otherwise good.

bierkoning (12812) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle. pale blonde. Oak, honey and apple in the aroma. Swetish apple flavor with persisting notes of oak, especially in the aftertaste. Honey. A considerable dry out effect. Sawdust. Thirst quenching, not too sweet and even some complexity.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2008
Pale gold. Sweet aroma with a promising tart background. Taste has a little sourness and even the beginning of a back of the throat dryness. Mainly, though, it’s a not unpleasant if slightly thin sweetness. I’m not sure I’d have identified it as honey.
