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!

leaparsons (10044) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
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.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Gold colour, with just the faintest haze. Rather surprisingly, this had a less farmyardy aroma than the same producers medium cider, purchased at the same time. The aroma is fresh and fruity. On the palate, although dry, there is some residual fruit and the mouthfeel is relatively mellow, with a very slight prickle. Spicy edge. A pleasant, quite easy drinking cider. From the barrel at the cider farm.

Cask @ The Lamb, Frome. Cloudy, gold, and flat. Mmmm resin aroma. Farmhouse barnhouse funk. Flat, soft, with some alcohol punch too. Salty and astringent.
