Keg. Light yellow, hazy. Tart, red, apples, or actually the skin and seeds only. Tanninic, dry, and a bit watery. Apple-y flavours, sure, and sort of a scrumpy spirit, but it’s just too light. A good session cider on a hot day though, this is an easy drink.olio (10408) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 5, 2013

Pours hazy lime color with no head. Aroma of pineapple, mild apple notes and grass. Flavour of apples, grass, faint pear, yeast and some hints of wood. Easy to drink.

Hazy yelly. Exceedingly tart palate. Slight phenolid aroma. Fruitiness gone, only some skins left. Has a kick like a concrete mule - it pulls my face into contortions, it’s so tart! Thank goodness for that, otherwise this would be a waste of apples - scrumpy should never be this weak ABV.
August 12, 2011 - cask at The Draft House (Tower Bridge). Hazy, extremely pale yellow with virtually no head. Very appealing aroma - I get more pear than apple, but what do I know? - tart, a bit funky and vinous (grapeskins?), light alcohol. Taste is very simple, more about ripe green apples and not much sweetness, decently acidic and dry - light, with a hint of Reisling. Average body, strong acidic, some life on the tongue, finishes dry and acidic, for some reason I got some bacon in the aftertaste (no, I had not been eating a bacon butty).

Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours clearish, pale yellow with a ringy film. Crisp, unripe apple nose. Nice flavor, not too sweet, bit of funk and dankity dank - though mellow - and faint tartness. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes dry or semi-dry, mildy sweet with some lingering, crisp apples. I like this kind of cider. downender (8728) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
On hand pump at the Goddard Arms, Clyffe Pypard, Wiltshire 29/1/2011. Pale yellow with a bit of fizz and slight haze. Sweet, pulped apples with the faintest trace of the barnyard. Has an unpleasant, industrial edge to it. harrisoni (18970) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2010
Bag in a box at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Pale green gold with haze. Some apple flavour but a tad vague. Touch of wood spirit. Poor vinegar aroma. Yug I think is the word. Cant finish a half pint. sm89walt (2073) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2010
Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. A clear, pale yellow with no head & a slight effervescence. Predominantly sweet apple aroma, just a slight tang there though it’s quite subdued on the whole. A bit farty with weak apple flavours, a bit of white wine finishing with a light & short green apple tang. Soft & moderately dry medium body with low carbonation. yespr (46523) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
From cask at Standing Order. Pours clear and pale yellow with a no head. Aroma is fruity apple. Acidic, crisp apple fruity and citric. Citric and crisp dry finish.
