Polypin, Richs Cider. Hazy orange in appearance. Aromas are earthy apple with oak barrel and barnyard notes. Trace floral lavender with lemon and vinegar. Flavours are dry and woody with earthy apple juice and skin. Quite herbal with floral notes. Dry on the finish. As easy to drink as the medium version.

Gary (1907) - Brentford ,West London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Bought a 4 and a half liter barrel @ the farm.
Aroma was a ittle funky barnyard...some gueuzeishness ...with some stale cheeseiness.. zipy apple and musty earth . Very plesant Cider. Its dry which I like , but mellow in that regard. Plesant apple acidity.

Draught (HBF2009) - shared by oh6gdx - thanks!
Now this is a real farmhouse aroma - properly sour. Eggy and bacony in the taste! However, no greasiness in the palate - this is crisp. Real cider rocks!
