The pour is a rich amber with medium effervescence. The aroma is apple and farmhouse - some leather and pasture. The taste is classic West Country. It’s dry apple and bitter. There isn’t much acid coming through. The finish is astringent tannins and long. It has a weighty mouthfeel. It takes me back to my trek through the English countryside. I quite enjoy it.
Heavily tannic, with a distinctive caramel flavour, this is strong on flavour, and alcohol.
Not sure I would want more than one in an evening, but glad I have more than one in stock, as this is engagingly different.
