2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ Gallows Bird RAF 2013. Pours golden orange. Aroma has some apple skin, but the strong barnyard... might as well call it stench dominates. Strong horse blanket. Taste is very, very dry. Hay and barnyard dominate it, light apple there as well naturally. The taste is quite light though. Palate is so as well. Definitely not a quaffer.

Plastic canister@Black Door, Helsinki. Slightly hazy deep orange colour with no head. Aroma is dry wood, some sweet somewhat rotten apples along with mild vanilla and some leathery notes. Flavour is sweet apples, on the verge to being too ripe, with some slight vinegar, yeast and mild earthiness. Dry, but still quite on the sweet side.

Thinner than the sweet cider we just had. Not as fruity either in the taste. Good apple skin finish though. Pretty easy drinker.
