Labelled as Sheppy’s Scrumpy Sweet. Flagon fresh from the cidery, Bradford on Tone, Taunton, Somerset.
Clear, medium gold, adherent to the glass but thinly looking as it rolls upon it, and still. Clean, all apple nose; supple, ripe fruit, core and peel, lightly spicy with a vinous, tannic kick. Good body, firm and well rounded. Fills the mouth well with what seems more a red apple than green. Quite sweet yet drawing, the palate seems to dry out after each swallow yet there is a good lot of residual, tangy fruit left there to play. Slight woodiness and barnyard earthiness builds but doesn’t get in the way of the fruit. A pleasant, devilishly easy drinking Cider.

On tap at Bedford BF ’09. Nothing here except intense, sugary sweetness. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.

Nice cider. Sweet stinky nose, diapers, cheese, apples, very farmyardy, with a slightly cloying sweetness, interesting. (Cask -GBBF 03')

I like to try at least one cider at every British beer festival I go to, and I was not disappointed with this one. The GBBF had a twelve point scale on their casks, from 1 (very sweet) to 12 (very dry), and this was a 1. Clear yellow, the aroma was a delicious blend of apples and lambic-like notes. Unlike some ciders, I really got some apple peel aromas. As it passes your lips, YEE-HAAAW! it is definitely sweet. The sweetness adds a syrupy mouthfeel, and I got the feeling that there was alcohol in there, but it was muted out by the sweet overtones. Without a doubt, you have to like sweetness up front to like this, although it fades in the finish in an admirable way, making it a well-rounded and sophisticated sweet cider.
