Shared bottle at local tasting, fj ØL øy, saturday 2.session..
Clear, extremely pale yellow colour with some bubbles. Aroma has red apples, dry, somewhat yeasty. Medium, sweet taste, a little bit of dryness towards the finish. Alcohol pushes through a bit. Medium body, slick mouthfeel. Not that great in my opinion. Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle from work, so probably picked up at Sainsbury’s. It pours clear green - gold with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. The aroma is quite rough, barnyard, earth, sugary sweet, apple skin and apple cider. The taste is surprisingly light, sweetish, white sugar, apple pie, tinned fruits, alcohol hit, some acidity, earth and distant wood. The finish is pretty short. Medium body and fine carbonation. Found this a bit disappointing really - a bit thin and sweet. So-so.

2014 vintage Bottle from Waitress. Pours a clear medium yellow color with a quickly receding head. The smell is wood, mature apples, floral, dust. The taste is very dry, vinous, some oak, some aged apple flavor with a crisp very dry ending. The body is light/medium with prickly carbonation. More depth than a lot of ciders.
