2014-07-10. Lightly hazy dark yellow body headless. Aroma wavers from quite nice fruity character to rather rough, backyard and light petrol notes, barnyard funk. 6+ Flavour is a really interesting mix of flavours, apple some funk, some strange earthy notes, tannic apple cores. Smooth bodied palate, low to no carbonation. An enigma. Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival

Draught at Derby NWAF 2014. Cloudy orange-yellow. Aroma of hay and barnyard. Taste is sour-sweet and full. A bit of cheese in the flavour... my God would this go well with Stilton. A lovely cider, not as dry as I normally like but still incredible.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at a cider festival in Bath
There were a number of intriguing looking options at the bar where about fourteen ciders were on offer. This seemed as good a place as any to start. I don’t know much about cider but after this I may have to branch out a bit. Certainly it beats the bottled Woodchuck that is ubiquitous back home.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden rosy color warms the glass. The nose is that of acres of apple orchards in late fall after a morning rainstorm with the mud still fresh on the ground.
Flavor / Palate - Malty polished pennies, honeycrisp (or similar) sweet apples, and a full body make this a beer that shouldn’t just be gulped down. The tang of the acidic cider lingers for a bit. It is a nice alternative to the usual beers and provided a change of pace while on vacation.
