3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Sim rate (bag in a box at the Bree Louise): Smells sweet and sour all at once. Sour red apple with a sugary tinge. Flavour is sour in a nice citric fashion but screaming of green apple and apple peel. Sharp and spicy. Quite dry but not dry enough.

From the barrel at the borough market, this was a surprising cider, not as dry or sour as i’d hoped but still tasty, surprisingly light body for the abv....i had to ask what it was....7.4%holy crap! It certainly warmed my feet up....it actually stopped my feet from hurting after a long day of walking!!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the barrel at Borough Market, London. I stumbled across a harvest festival called October Plenty while in London for the day recently. Ciders from New Forest were available labeled dry, medium, and sweet. I had the Dry, so I assume it was this entry. It smelled of green apples and had a very enjoyable apple flavor with ample earthy tones. It was a delicious quaff while I watched a man dressed as some indeterminate type of animal play the violin and other costumed musicians join in.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the barrel at the farm (10/07/05). I’m suprised that I havent tried this cider in the 3 years I’ve been living in the Southampton area right next to the new forest - the last time I had it was probably in Leamington! Woody tannins and country aroma with a very appley fruity finish. Pleasingly (but not austerely) dry with a good balance of acidity.

Cloudy lemon. Nice funky apple aroma, bit of an alcoholic/spirit note there too. Fresh apple taste with a long dry tart finish. Quite juicy, very tasty, yet suprisingly simple. Nice!
