In short: dry flat cider.
Pours some hazy dark gold with vanishing white head. Fruity apple, tart, little barnyard nose. Medium body, flat carbonation, oily texture. Taste is really dry, little bitterness, fruity. Good stuff.

500ml bottle. Orange golden colour, no head and aroma of tart apple, woody, oak, funk, leather, rubber. Taste is dry tangy apple with barnyard, woody, leather & rubber notes, and earthy drying tannins. Quite sour, medium bodied, no carbonation, very dry tannic finish. Abit harsh, but OK.

minutemat (5146) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Draft @ Beer in Hand, Hereford. I hope this is the same as the bottled version rated below. This is uncharacteristic Olivers to me, its flavour presenting a very thin and dry blend with a coarse woodiness and gum-sucking dryness without any of the trademark fruitiness that Tom has perfected over the years. Mind you, in this kind of place thatís precisely what the locals want I expect.

CanIHave4Beers (4181) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Whatís the deal here? Not a single Euro rate on this business, yet I find it in a Urbandale grocery store?
Pours perfectly still, with a golden color.

The aroma is appley, earthy, lightly lemony, with some white grape and Pinot Gris wine.

The flavor is puckeringly tart, very dry, lightly spicy and very enjoyably bitter. The apple character is very nice, itís got the flavor of lightly bitter apples without any of the sweetness. The cider is oaky, earthy, and really fantastic.

@ $9 a bottle I went back to the store so I could purchase and drink another one.
