3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Hazy golden with no head. Tart and very authentic apple aroma - lots of honey as well. Medium body, flat with very astringent apple accents quickly balanced by a fruity sweetness. Has a whiff of acetone, well actually a bit more than a whiff - it makes me cough! A rather authentic and interesting cider. 180110

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned From the barrel St Albans BF 09. A hazy lime green coloured cider with an off-white ring of bubbles for a head. The aroma has some spritzy funk together with the obvious apple. There are sweet and sour notes in the nose. In the mouth are sweetish apples and a good full body. On the sweet side of medium and very drinkable and enjoyable without ever being challenging.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 4/10/07. Opaque orange with minimal head. Aroma was a mix of yeasty farmyard and inviting apple juice. Flavour of tart apples with a very long dry finish. Dangerously drinkable for the ABV. Excellent [4.0]. Re-rate at the Cotham Porter Stores, Bristol 22/03/10. Much sweeter this time around, with a distinct caramel edge and lacking in complexity [3.2].
