Cask @ GBA @ Gallows Bird. Pours a very hazy orange soda color, no head. Aroma is apple and fermented apple. Taste is somewhat sweet apples with a bit pungent vanilla and oak finish. Palate is alright. Not the most refreshing cider for this weather.

Cask, Half Way House, near Langport, Somerset. Thanks to brewery for confirming this was the correct cider. Aroma is apples; candi sugar, cherry cola penny sweets. Taste is apples; lemon, wood, oak, dry apple notes, sherbert sweets, a load of candi sugar, very sessionable. Very nice. Abv is well hidden. Great work.
