AKA Scrumpy. A medium, still cider only available on draught or in 2 or 4 litre plastic containers drawn from the barrel.
ABV varies but is usually 6.0%-6.5%
NOTE: Not to be confused with the slightly sparkling "Farm Pressed" version sold in 1 litre glass flagons.

Burrow Hill Cider is pressed from traditional cider apples and matured in oak barrels. The result is a vintage quality cider which, to the best of our knowledge, is the only cider in recent years to have won the cider championship awards in Devon, Somerset and Herefordshire all in the same year.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
On cask at Southampton Arms - August 19, 2011. Light gold, hazy, not much head, still-looking. Aroma of tart, almost sour apple - like an acidic candy apple. Really like that taste - sweeter, but funky and acidic enough to carry it - a nice sweet/sour balance (6+). Average body, light acidity and carbonation, leaves a tart, funky finish - I liked it more than I thought I would.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton Arms.
Hazy yellow brown colour. A really good, fruity medium cider. perfect level of sweetness, balanced really well with a perfect level of dryness. Edging more towards dry than sweet. Epic apples. About as close to biting into an apple as any cider I’ve ever had. Excellent drying finish. Brilliant stuff.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2005
Sampled at the farm. Unlike some of the sweeter ciders this has not been sweetened artificially. The rich apple aromas with subtle spice notes and toffeish qualities in a way obscure the challenging qualities which really make cider special.
