A sparkling, single varietal cider made with the Kingston Black apple variety.

Bottle at Full Monty. Very dry, tannic nose. Chalk, minerals, just a bit of apple. This is the driest cider I have ever had, extremely tannic, with just a hint of light, sweet apple juice somewhere in there that makes it very fun and enjoyable. The tannic finish last a long, mouth-puckering time. I actually liked this a lot, beyond the educational value of a single KB cider. It is too dry to drink all day, and I enjoyed the Vintage Reserve much more, but a fascinating creature.

Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen 27.04.17. Clear golden. Not much head. Fine aroma of apple zest and wild apples. Similar taste, with leather. Dry. Very good, interesting and with excellent drinkability.

Holmen1 (6149) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 27, 2017
Flaske delt med skibsrederen ombord på den stolte skute: klar gylden med kort skum. Forfriskende og innsmigrende aroma og smak av engelsk eplehage. Fornemmer et snev av kanel i ytterkanten, og helt i slutten noe som minner om tørre epleskall og et villeple eller to. Deilig drikke.

ManVsBeer (10800) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Plymouth. Pale golden in colour. Has a small apple aroma, but much more stated in its taste with a slight burnt wood infusion. It has a strength but its flavours dominate over this. It’s a dry tasting cider.

Bottle brought by a friend, medium sample. Clear golden color, short head. Aroma of green apple, dry wood, slight vanilla, touch of funk. Dry in taste, apple, slight wood. Crisp, quite complex (although I cant seem to describe a lot of characteristics :-)). Nice cider.
