3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at 6.8%, picked up at Cotteridge Wines. It pours clear yellow - gold with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is earthy, funky, farmyard, apple skin, lemon zest, sherbet, white grape and gooseberry. The taste is crisp, clean, bright lemon zest, sherbet, some acidity, tartness, tannins, earthy, pale skin and farmyard with a pretty dry finish . Medium body and fine carbonation. Wow. Pretty impressive. Bright and dry. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Polycask at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Pours light straw colour, touch floral on the nose but also a little farmyard. This is really quite a full on cider, very dry and its almost like cider with a goodly splash of jiffy lemon in it. This is really nice, a real palate cleanser though and a mouth puckeringly dry and challenging cider at times, was loved more than loathed by all who tried it though. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8
