Draught at shrewsbury hotel. Pours copper. Rich caramel aroma. Quite a rich super sweet taste perhaps too much. Rather boozy & syrupy. Not really a pint-worthy cider.

Tap at the Pump House, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is kinda apple. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth light alcohol apple palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. It’s a cider. They all taste the same don’t they??

September 5, 2014 at The Southampton Arms (visit #1) - handpull. Amber-gold, very clear and refractive, just a hint of bubbly head. Aroma is quite interesting - apple, alcohol, and an odd uric tartness ... the taste is super super simple, and drinks like 4% - some baked alaska sweetness in it, but ... wow. Slick, average body, not all that much acidity, and quick finishing - very pleasant. A real "wind up in the gutter" pull.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Cider Farm in Lewes. This one was quite classy. Cloudy, sharp, some earth in the back with a bit of grass and hay. Unusual aromas by a fine and special cider. Big apples and sharp ending. Liked that one like McT did.

Draught at the Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes / Firle. Pours out in a deep orange-golden colour with smooth body. Aroma of leaves and red apples. Taste of ripe red apples, some light unripe green ones, leaves and fields. Smooth and delicious finish. Nice one.

Cask @ Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Light Copernicus, completely clear and still. Aroma of apples, icing sugar and pear drops. The initial blast of sweetness in the taste gives way to a tart apple-skin finish. A very good cider indeed, but is missing the complexity of some less commercial recipes.
