3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 2013 vintage. Pours a clear golden beer without any head on top. Typical cider look. Aroma has apples, light yeast and juicy. Flavor is medium sweet with loads of apples in there. Really fresh, but also some aged notes on there, giving it almost a vineous touch in the body. Very nice cider in my humble opinion.

Pours bright clear with no head. The aroma has dry apples, some warm alcohol, oak, buggy yeast and a nice fullness to all of it. Has a fairly full body for a cider and bit slick - probably partially due to being still. The flavor is quite dry with rusty notes, dried apples, leather and fall leaves. The finish has a bit of dried herbs mixed with everything else. Super solid cider.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Mild aroma. Cider doesn’t deviate from apples. No hops. No yeast. Less on the bubbly carbonation. A stale carbonated beverage mellowed out gulp that has a longer lasting effect of mellow nature. Extends the need for the need of the next watering hole.

Cask. Golden color, no head. Apple, quite fresh apple notes actually, some wooden vanilla notes too in aroma. Refreshing fresh apple in taste. Bit tart fruityness in finish with hints of spicy vanilla as well.

(Half pint from a bag-in-a-box at Gallow’s Bird, 20150122) The cider poured deep golden and clear. No head. Aroma had apple juice, wood and sugary sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were apple juice, apple seeds, mild sourness, some tartness and tart finish. Aftertaste had tart and seedy finish. A likeable cider.

Cask@gallows raf15. Copper clear. Red delicious, some apple zest and seeds on nose. Vry inviting really- red sweet, with a light tartness. Sweet flavoured, but with good tannins and light tart to keep the palate clean. Real nice sweet red apple flavour, refreshing anall.

Cask @ Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2015
Aroma has ripe apples and strong leathery tones. Also hints of urinal tones. Flavour is rather leathery with apple peel, floury apples and some apple juice. Also some acidic tones. Enjoyable, I like the leather tones here.

2012 vintage. Nice appearance, rich amber/gold pour. A good, solid cider, nothing fancy, seems to have aged well. Nice balance of sweet and sour, clean and very refreshing. Has the flavor of farmhouse cider, recommended.

2012 vintage. 500ml bottle. Pee yellow pour. Smell is earthy and some cidre vinegar, some apple pulp. It is extremely lightly carbed. It has more sweetness than expected in an english cider. Slight rotten note, dry but mild finish.

Very good in every aspect although a bit less sweet would be perfect. Perfect mouthfeel, perfect without carbonation.
