3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Draught at the Hessen Haus
Pours a golden color with a very small head that is actually well retained, which is weird for cider but it’s kind of cool.
The aroma is tart and oaky, some mild funk, crisp apple. The cider is pungent and remarkable smelling at first I had it at an 8 for aroma but I brought it down a point because over the course of the pint the aroma faded till it was really quite boring, strange.
The flavor is tart and fairly sweet, it finishes dry so that’s a plus. The cider is very apple-y, a little oaky, and fairly tart with a mild spiciness.
Not too bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Wharf. As Premium Medium Dry Draught Cider. A clear, still, dark golden cider. Pleasant aroma of ripe apples, orchard, apple cores and a little touch of fruit syrup. Quite dry on the palate, but not puckering. Pleasant carbonation and full body. Apples of course dominate the flavor, but there’s also a faint spiced touch. Drying, apple finish with a touch of apple cores and fruit syrup. Drinks easy, quenches and is tasting good too. 101216

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
568ml bottle shared with Blockley. Pours a clear dark gold, with, as one might expect of a cider, no head. There is a pervasive aroma of Jarlsberg cheese, mixed with dried apple. Initially it tastes much the same, before a dry, tart apple takes over. The finish adds some sweeter fruit characteristics. Not as good as some other Westons ciders, and the Jarlsberg flavour is very weird, but I do still find this fairly enjoyable.
