2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bag-in-a-box at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading. Hazy gold. Light vanilla, a bit of funky apple tartness. Sweetish. Smooth but a bit thin. Hint of dryness in the finish. Rather wishy-washy but OK I guess.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask HP Glastonbury 2016 as Thatchers Heritage, 4.9%. Hazy orange, lasting off white head. Aroma light raspberry, red apple, airy. Body is fairly light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, thin apple juice, red apple, cheap tinned fruit salad in thin syrup, dries out a little in the finish. Perfectly fine serviceable stuff, but a bit thin for my taste. I don’t like to be reminded of the water content of my ciders to this extent.

*Old rating. Round and refreshing. Hints of sourish apples with sulfur. Dry body. Long sulfur-apple aftertaste, dry-sourish but round. Could be a bit more aromatic, but probably not fresh enough...

Tap at The Royal Oak. Hazy straw coloured cider. A nice light fruitiness. Apple and some definite ethyl acetate notes (although they’re light). Tannic/spicy apple skin and a bit of apple sweetness. A bit of pepper and some nice fruit. Dry finish. Fairly light palate and a bit of dustiness. Okay.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ The Cider House, Bridgnorth, an absolute joke of a cider pub! Pours a cloudy yellow with a fair dose of barnyard funk in the nose and palette. Fairly straightforward medium-sweet taste with a light, green apple fruitiness and slight wooden element to keep it from being too boring. Not great but there are much worse ciders out there.
