Not sure what everyone else drank, but this isn’t it. Bland, flat, no aroma. Would probably drink again…

Gwynt Y Ddraig Farmhouse Cloudy Scrumpy (5.3% ABV, 500ml). Fermented apple juice, no addition of juice to make it cloudy (AFAICT). Hazy orange colour. The whiff of vanilla I get when opening the bottle is completely gone in the glass. In fact, there's not much aroma left at all: Mild, sweetish yellow apples, yeast. Light body, watery, mild carbonation. Now, on the palate I do get some vanilla, along with yellow apples, very faint sulphur, even fainter honey. Some very mild bitterness towards the finish, again lemon. Short and unimpressive aftertaste with tannins, only the ghost of apples. The most disappointing cider from the Welsh company yet, very blah. 5.5/10

Not particularly special. The pub landlord said he gets this for people who ask for geneic cider. It is better than the generic cider but there is nothing really to talk about Clear gold colour (bag in the box so it was still). Typical Gwynt Y Ddraig flavours, predominately being over sweet for my taste.

Amber colour, moderate fizz and very cloudy (as on the tin!) Ripe apple aroma. Flavour of apple skin. Slightly tangy.
