COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available on draught and in 750ml bottles.
Gold Rush is the first Transatlantic cider-making collaboration between Tom Oliver of Oliverís Cider & Perry, Herefordshire and Greg Hall of Virtue Cider, Chicago. Using skills and crafts refined through the centuries, this fine cider is made with unsprayed cider apples from local and traditional orchards. Fresh pressed juice is fermented by wild yeasts and then matured and aged in oak barrels. A true reflection of the cidermakers art.

On tap at Anxo, pours a muddy orange with a ring of white head. Nose is absolutely delicious, sweet apples, earthy too, some yeast, a little turbinado sugar. Flavor follows, apples, apple juice, earthy apple cores, lightly sweet, a little orange maybe too. Mostly dry, earthy finish. Absolutely delicious and crazy drinkable.

Cask at Cider Tap. It pours cloudy rich amber with a small, bubbly white head. The aroma is rich, earthy, funky, must apple pie and vanilla ice cream. The taste is rich, boosty alcohol, sweet apple pie, light vanilla, wood, damp leaves, earthy funk and a touch of acidity. Medium body and a hint of carbonation. A bit chewy perhaps, but it has a good depth of flavour and balance. A quality cider.

Cask. Bright golden color, sparkling. Aroma of tannins and apple skins. Taste is semi-sweet apple and vanilla. Very nice.

Pours clear golden with a minor head. The aroma has dry apples, some brett like funk and very light veggies. It has a medium / light body with mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts very dry with herbal, leafy and rustic notes with some wild yeast sort of thing. The finish is very dry and a bit sulfury. Pretty tasty.

Some band-aid. Drier than #1, not as sweet. Side by side with #1. Tasted at my Whales and Whimps bottle share. Thx John.

330 ml. bottle sampled @ ďKaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer FestivalĒ. Darker shade of golden. Lightly rustic bitter apple in the nose with light sulfite. Taste is bitter sulfite, bitter apple peal, light rustic, light chemical-like taste, sweet apple,Ö Rather substantial body. Not ideal but agreeable.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Zero head. Pours a dark gold with an orange hue. Aroma is mostly tart, with some vinegar and a hint of sweet red apple. Taste follows aroma. Loads of hay, straw and barnyard funk. Very good, much better than I was expecting.

Cask / Bag in a Box @ Euston Cider Tap. Fairly dry one this, with plenty of tannins, nice and rough around the edges with a nice farmhouse feel and a little straw here & there. Bit too acidic, although the oak balances that out. Wouldnít mind trying a bottle of this.
