A Mes rate. Cask at GBBF.
Very clean gold. Pretty rough ear wax aroma. Thankfully the flavour is MUCH better. Nice and dry, really wakes the palate up. Long fruity finish. Start wasn’t good, the rest was excellent.

VEry sweet yes, but also too good to discard. Although it was a dry one the sourness is exquisit too.

Bag in a box at Haddenham Beer Festival, Haddenham, Bucks, 05-07-08 Pours warm golden with some haze. Nice musty appley aroma, taste is quite dry, plenty of tannins but despite this there is some sweetness that remains and whilst its not bursting with appley flavours there is plenty in there and its very nice.

Bottled from bag in a box at Rare Breeds BF 08. Mine said 6%. Hazy gold, no head. Typical cheesy cider aroma. Plenty of cider apple fruit in mouth, little bit orangey. This is pretty drinkable, nice apple juice. Bit of eucalyptis. A little grassy even. Cheese flavour settles down, but it is still there. Fine.
