Gravity dispense at Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2016, Brangwyn Hall. As ’Seider o Sir Medium’ 6.3%. Thanks to Sarah. Hazy orange, still, bubbly white head. Aroma is socks, armpit, musty apple peel. Body is smooth with light carbonation. Taste is dry, some varnish, watery apple, white sugars. It’s OK if a touch harsh.

Cask Stillage at the GBBF Earl’s Court, London 09/08/2008 Fruity and slightly spiced aroma. Golden coloured and hazy in appearance. Very fruity with a little dryness in a tannin finish.

Hazy yelloow with no head. Strong oak aroma with vanilla, and apples. Dry and wooden flavour with tannins. Apple juice takes over after a while

6.3% at GBBF08. Good acidic aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Burning acidity in the flavour, quite strong, paint thinner. Not bad.

@GBBF2008 (6.3%, sold as O Sir Medium Cider). Golden colour, no head. Aroma is spices, apples, some quite strong alcoholic notes. Flavour is very dry apples, blue cheese, grassyness, mild spicy notes as well as quite much alcohol.

Cask @ Piglet BF, listed as Barker’s Seidr O Sir 6.8%? Hazy gold with no head. Apple, pear and a bit of hay in the nose, slightly medicinal. Sweet, juicy and tart at first, like biting into an apple but ultimately quite dry. You can certainly tell there’s a few varieties of apple in there, some cinnamon hints also. Warms your belly like wine. Good stuff.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2007
A Mes rate: Boxed stillage @ Planet Thanet. Very similar to the dry with just a little extra sweetness. Expect vintage barnyard character and puckery sourness. Excellent stuff.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2006
Aroma is sweetish apples, with soem sourness. Taste doesnt have to much appkle character, not very dry either, seems to have some apple skin going on.

This was badged as Seidr O Sir Medium Cider, but it is not clear whether the producer makes any other version. Also at 7.7%, although the website says 8%. Hazy yellow colour. Medicinal, slightly phenolic aroma, to go with the usual farmyardy manure notes typical of an authentic farmhouse cider. The flavour is surprisingly fruity, but also has a good tart tannic grip. Certainly on the dry side of medium. From the barrel at GBBF 2004.
