    I am seriously tempted to stop taking them a day early so I can get some cider action on Sunday.

    I dont think I'm going to be able to make it.... got a rare trip to the football Saturday so getting out on Friday or Sunday is going to be hard. Might be able to stagger in after the game on Saturday.

    Dunno when everyone else is going but we were thinking of Sat afternoon and taking the kids. It would be nice to see a few familiar faces if anyone else we know is around.

    Getting started.

    Had a delightful tasting session and now settling down with a rum cask to consider my options.

    As well as some of the old classics there is a fine crop of new comers.

    The blood orange is right up there for you sweet fans. Plesently sweet tipple without crossing over into sickly.

    Elderflower cider follows it up as an absolutely delicious medium sweet that I could drink all night.

    Greebo's talking juice is a fine easy to drink all round medium that will have you raising many a glass.

    The Reined Des Haives is a continental shocker. It hits with a hard lemon punch and leaves a deep tannin resonance.

    The stoke red is the RDHs little brother. Not quite as full on but sharing plenty of family traits.

    Decided to follow up with a pint of Greebo's.

    This is a cider that remembers what people enjoy about a nice glass of apple juice. A nice mix of tartness, apple sweetness and refreshing to quaff. The fact it is hiding a 6.5% cosh behind it's back is something that will catch many by supprise after being lured in by its affable composure.

    Things continue with a pint of elderflower cider.

    I have found my new alcopop god.

    People bandy around the term alcopop like it was a bad thing. How far from the truth they could be. Sometimes you just want to indulge yourself with a drink that has all the naughty sweetness of our favourite soft drinks combined with the kick of alcohol.

    Previously I would indulge this desire with something like the rekorderlig with strawberry and lime. A delicious mix of sweet sour and oblivoin.

    Elderflower cider reminds me of corinthians 13:11
    When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

    I have put away the childish alcopops of the past. Here and now i drink a man's alcopop.

    Rutita1 Scum with no integrity, apparently.

    Greebo's Talking Juice :cool:
     
  17. Shippou-Sensei

    Shippou-Sensei 4:1:2.5

    It was the first cider that ever liked me back.
     
  18. Shippou-Sensei

    Shippou-Sensei 4:1:2.5

    I pace myself somewhat with a half of Iford. A medium dry with a light clean taste with a decent touch of sweetness.

    It has an deceptable mild front that is a trojan horse filled to bursting with a tannin after taste.

    My teapot dry mouth craves more.

    It's cry will be answer by my first can of the night. Elk. A Swedish brew with a blackberry boost.

    It is a fizzy explosion on the tounge. It reminds me somewhat of refreshers.

    It is a plesent sweet fizzy drink.

    Served over ice on a hot summers afternoon I would probably compare it to pure ambrosia.

    But now I have been spoilt. Compared to elderberry cider this is a rude unsubtle brew.
    It has its charms but it is writ in neon sugar rather than subtle sweetness.

    I plough on and partake of the pear o'duddas

    A delightful perry that balances sweetness with a bramley apple edge that pulls us back into a nice easy to drink that is on the sweet ens of a medium.

    A superb lubricant that partners excellently with plesent company.
