The Rhino Winter Fest. Barrelled and taking in a substantive cider taste and aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Light orange bodied, with some head. Not bad drinkability. This could have been a lot worse, I think they are playing the cider popularity, and it was fine.

Hazy deep orange colour, bubbly white head with little lace, pretty good for a cask beer. Smell is full of apple and some tartness and a touch funky at points, malty with some sweet candy apples and cider, a little bit of biscuit as well under all the apple. Taste is like sweet tarts, apple juice/cider, malty at times, a bit sweeter mid palate, a bit more tartness with a malty aftertaste. Lightish carbonation, medium body, decent cask feel. Not bad but reminds me way to much of apple juice with a underlying malt bill, a bit of a novelty but not off putting, my girlfriend liked this and she hates beer so maybe this one is for the ladies.
