As you have probably noticed from my lacking of posting this weekend, it has been a manic one and things have only just calmed down enough now to review another cider. It involved a cider pub crawl on the Saturday to even help run a pub on the Sunday! After all of that, yesterday just had to be a day of rest. I’m now all recuperated and ready to jump back on that cider wagon! Up next is the last of the Rich’s cider, with their Years Yarlington (SV) (2011) now taking centre stage.

This is probably one of my last ciders I’ll be reviewing before heading to Frankfurt on Friday in pursuit of Apfelwein. Hopefully I can go out with a bang with this selection. Luckily for me I found it hidden in a bag I completely forgot about and lo and behold I find a cider! Don’t you just love it when that happens?!? The treat for today is the Cider Bus cider from Burrow Hill.
