From oak barrel at Borough Market as New Forest Draught Cider Dry 7%. Hazy orange, still with no head. Aroma is airy, some armpit, cardboard. Body is oily with very light carbonation. Taste is very dry, woody, some vinegar, touches of blue cheese, not even a hint of sweetness, some varnish. Absolutely bone dry with a prominent acidity. A very interesting drink, but hard to drink in large quantities. They sell pints of this, but doubt they get many takers. I found it quite hard going.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2010
A Sim rate (bag in a box at the Bree Louise): Smells sweet and sour all at once. Sour red apple with a sugary tinge. Flavour is sour in a nice citric fashion but screaming of green apple and apple peel. Sharp and spicy. Quite dry but not dry enough.

From the barrel at Borough Market, London. I stumbled across a harvest festival called October Plenty while in London for the day recently. Ciders from New Forest were available labeled dry, medium, and sweet. I had the Dry, so I assume it was this entry. It smelled of green apples and had a very enjoyable apple flavor with ample earthy tones. It was a delicious quaff while I watched a man dressed as some indeterminate type of animal play the violin and other costumed musicians join in.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
From the barrel at the farm (10/07/05). Im suprised that I havent tried this cider in the 3 years Ive been living in the Southampton area right next to the new forest - the last time I had it was probably in Leamington! Woody tannins and country aroma with a very appley fruity finish. Pleasingly (but not austerely) dry with a good balance of acidity.

Barrel. Yeah, nice stuff. Farmyard funk aroma. Nice juicy and dry, with some woody characters, aswell as some fresh apple. Nice acidity in the finish.

Cloudy lemon. Nice funky apple aroma, bit of an alcoholic/spirit note there too. Fresh apple taste with a long dry tart finish. Quite juicy, very tasty, yet suprisingly simple. Nice!
