3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bright orange, cloudy and still cider. A fairly potent apple fruit aroma, plus a little sourness. The taste is on the dryer side of medium, with plenty of mouth puckering sour apple flavours. A dry finish. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Cask, Newark Fest 07. Very bright orange. Aromas are earthy apple juice with a light sourness. Flavours are dry, yet sweet apple with a mellow sweet and sour character. Fairly fizzy.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 A Mes rate:
Cask from the Wenlock. Totally hilarious, sat in the Wenlock with Anthony from Du Bocq and Gert from Oud Beersel and I ordered this for Anthony pretending it was a hoppy English blonde. They both sat there staring at it like they didn’t know what to do with it. Considering Gert is a brewer of such fine lambics I wouldn’t have thought anything would throw him off but it did. Gert said he liked it but it was too sweet, Anthony said it was awful but drank almost all of it. Great. Oh yeah the rate, erm... BRIGHT orange. Straight forward sweetish cider that could do with some sourness for a kick at the end.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Boot, Weymouth, Dorset. Seemed to be the tipple of choice of a good proportion of the punters in this pub, which was easy to spot from the rather alarming orange colour, which I’m reluctant to believe is entirely natural. It may have been a case of suggestion but I thought there was an orangey accent on the palate to go with the sharp, pulpy apple flavour. Reasonably dry and tart but a bit short of farmyard character, which I suppose is understandable in a semi commercial product. Pleasant but not too challenging.

Cask (gravity) at the Melton Mowbray CAMRA festival 2005. Looked like Irn Bru, smelt like freshly peeled apples, tasted like heaven. Just a touch of tart, and we all know just a touch is enough ;)
