So yesterday in the pub, I got Non-Dry February started with a pint of Hand Brake, another cider from the Rosie’s Pig line (like Flat Tyre).
Like its stablemate (applemate? brewerymate?), Hand Brake is a pretty pinky-red colour. The label says it’s damson-flavoured, but it tasted more like raspberries to me.
It’s a nice flavoured pint, but I’d say Flat Tyre has the edge for me – the rhubarb is just a bit more interesting. I wouldn’t be disappointed to find either on tap in a pub in future though!
