Bottle 0.5l from Marks and Spencer Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Taste as M&S Vintage Oak Cider. Pour it clear golden color with no head. Aroma green apples and grapes. Taste sweet apple kind of juice, pinch of citric, dry and earthy finish, heavy cloying sweetness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation. OK not so bad.

Vintage 2015. Zdobyte z Beers of Europe dzieki Panu Jackowi. Pachnie dojrzalymi i wylezalymi jablkami deserowymi. W smaku kwaskowo slodkie, jablka jakby lekko nadpsute, troche drewna i wilgoci piwnicznej, gazowane ale przyjemnie, lekko rozgrzewajace po chwili. Tresciwe i smaczne.

Leighton (19502) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle at home in London - picked up at M&S. Vintage 2012. Pours clear gold with a faint bubbly topping. Pleasant aroma, with lightly aged and musty apples, nips of honey, apple skin. Medium sweet flavour with a lightly cutting musty dryness, hints of caramel, earth, leather. Medium bodied with faint carbonation. Somewhat drying on the finish, with further ripening apples, a little bitter skin, old hay. Fun one.

ManVsBeer (8943) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2016

Garrold (4630) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle. The M&S version. Clear, very pale gold. Nose has baked dessert apple. Some sweet oak. Some toffee apple. Taste is soft sweet. Minimal bitterness. Has a curious, rubbery thing going on. A bit of a flabby mouthfeel. Finishes light sweet, with a dry close. The oak seems to have mellowed out any apple tang or bitterness, and as a results feels a bit soggy, overall.
