Tap at Pigalle. Hazy gold with a small head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of soft apple, pear and light funk. Taste is quite similar with a light bit of yogurt. Nice medium to heavy body with soft carbonation. Good apple on the finish with some light peach and yogurt. Very nice.

6 Sharp, slightly acidic aroma
3 Bold orange, hazy.
7 Massive sweet fruity taste.
4 Huge acidic bite
13 Two thrusts - sweet fruits and harsh acid - pulling in opposite directions with equal force; gotta love it!
Rerate: Tapped bag (Whetherspoons, Cambridge) (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Beautifully fruity aroma, packed full of riupe apples, blossom and a touch of woody bite. Touch funky, super refreshing, and no hint of 6% at all.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a plastic barrel at the Great British Beer Festival, Day 4 on 6 August 2010 as Sandford Orchards Medium Cider but I think this is the same stuff. Orangey colour. Whoa. Big blue cheese in a sweaty sock tossed around in a farmyard full of cow shit. Very reminiscent of Gamle Ole - my favourite smelly Danish cheese - too. In short, a blockbuster of a nose that is great if you like that kind of thing. I do. Others might find it unpleasant. Very different character in the taste to the aroma. A little sweet on the palate with a fair amount of fruit and modest tannins. Pleasant enough but not as extreme as the aroma, or as demanding, or as rewarding. Most definitely a cider of two halves but still interesting and enjoyable.

Draught at Pigalle. Rich apple and pear with a light sour edge, honey, some funky notes, fairly sweet finish. Good stuff, a tad too heavy maybe.
