Once he realized that I wasn’t the typical American cider drinker, the chap at Lilley’s poured me some Gladiator. It’s what I bought for an evening treat at the hotel. Decent astringency, no real carbonation and depending on if you cold crash it or let it sit, it will settle out pretty clear, just like a bottle conditioned cider. I like the sweet as it was reasonably balanced with a some acid and tannins.
