Cask at craft beer company, London. I didnt get a strong presence of rum in this, though it was a flavourful cider and not artificially sweet like so many. Pleasant.

Cask at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a deep golden color with no head and a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is intense and complex with apples, hay, wood, vinegar and alcohol. Taste is sweet-sour, medium dry, with big apple and barnyard notes. Some liqueur and wood as well. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, tasty complex and refreshing. Great stuff.

Real cider from cask: Cloudy golden, no head. Aroma of rum and quite tart apples. Taste is fairly sweet with a lot of rum in it though it doesn’t overpower the apple. Very nice mouthfeel and finish. Would definitely want to taste again.
