From cask at Southampton Arms. Pours pale and slight hazy yellow to greenish with no lasting head. Aroma is acidic and citrusy fruity. Mild acetone in the perry based flavour. Dry and acidic flavoured. Light acetone into the finish. Despite the strange notes I like this one.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 Bottle from garden centre, near Wellington, Herefordshire Poured light golden, nice peary nose but also a bit wine like in character. Wonderfully juicy and given a little time in the mouth this really had quite a good depth of flavour. Not as good as the Rathays which was a stunner but very nice all the same. Polypin at Banbury Beer Festival 09-05-08 Cloudy lemon colour looks like Robinsons barley water. Very slightly sour nose but with some overipe pears. The taste is just superb, this i sweet admiitedly but those pears just feel like that oozing ripeness and oh bugger it this is one you just have to drink and forget about words, I loved it, little tangy bite back at the end, my beer/cider/perry of the fetival and this has now been updated to a 4.1
