From oak cask at Borough Market as New Forest Draught Cider Medium, 7%. Cloudy orange, still, no head. Aroma is apple, some urine. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is tangy, apple, elderflower, musty, lightly acidic and astringent. Quite acidic. Interesting. Much greater drinkability than the dry.

Bag in box @ The Castle Inn, West Lulworth - The permanent Dorset Cider Festival. Slightly unclear orange body with practically no head. Relatively light apple aroma with hint of perfumed alcohol. Rather robust in flavor, ripe apples, cellar notes, some acidity and hint of alcohol. A bit different cider and quite pleasant.

From the barrel at Chelmsford Beer Festival on 15 July 2011. Noted at 7.0%. Considering this is made in Hampshire and presumably does not make heavy use of traditional cider apple varieties, this had a surprisingly farmyardy aroma. Firm and fruity on the palate with moderate tannin. A very decent drop.

Bag in box at The Castle Inn, West Lulworth, Dorset. Clouded orange gold with no head. Quite a peppery apple flavour with a perfumed brandy note. Some skinny bitterness. Not great.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Cask at the stall in Borough market. Alround rating: I generally have a half of this when im feeling poor in the morning. Aroma is funky apples, big tart apple acidiy, woodyness is key. I really really like this stuff and its an excellent hangover cure!

Fukito (1019) - Santiago, CHILE - NOV 23, 2007
Stillage at The Wenlock, october 07. Turbid, pale yellow color with a small white rim. Rancid, geuze like aroma. Musty, fruity, lemony flavor with some green apple notes. Medium to light palate, packs a punch of flavor. Nice, deceiving medium real cider.

Almost opaque cloudy golden yellow. Light apple juice with a nice sweetness and delicately dry on the finish. Very drinkable and pleasant flavours. Good stuff.
