sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2011
Cask - The Glasshouse (JDW), Norwich. Poured a clear, dark golden amber with no head. Sweet apples dominate, touches of oak on both nose and palate. Soft, smooth mouthfeel, no real finish just a hint of apple skin bitterness at the end. Deceptively drinkable at 7.2% but lacks oomph in terms of flavour also.

leaparsons (8307) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Golden with no carbonation. Aromas are earthy apple with caramel and vinegar. Quite agricultural with lemon and yeast. Flavours are clean apple juice with tart citrus and lots of dry, woody notes. Some cheesy mustiness with a dry, peppery alcohol finish. Pretty good.

On cask at the Counting House in Glasgow. Pours a dark golden colour with an aroma of apple and oak. Very dry with apple, oak, caramel and candy sugar flavours. Too sweet for me.
