Pleasant apple juice and skins aroma. Paleish, clear, petilant. Light palate, crisp carbonation, a little watery. Dry apple skins in the taste. a bit dull, but pleasant enough.

50cl bottle from Waitrose, Sandhurst. Vintage 2014 Straw coloured with moderate carbonation; a crisp dessert apple taste, not too sweet, with some drier pear towards the finish. Very drinkable. Theydon_Bois (21429) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Windsor, 15/08/15.
Clear golden topped with a modicum of white bubbles, whose obtuse actions in terms of staying to make friends, belied the quality of this cider and left me somewhat less than sanguine upon the initial pour.
Nose was crisp apple orchard, straw, light balsa wood and dung.
Taste comprised pork crackling, apple xauce, straw, earthy, apple core, light wood, vanilla.
Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, drying crisp close with apple pie licks.
I was not sure I would become friends with this cider when it all started but when an alligator demands your pajamas, all you can do is acquiesce.

2011 vintage bottle - clear golden orange, no head, still. Smell - sweet and acidic cider, slight strawberry jam. Body is medium to light, no carbonation. Taste - sweet yet drying, apple juice, a little strawberry, musty. A bit too acidic and over-sweet for me. My teeth feel furry. HenrikSoegaard (14704) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2013
