leaparsons (7794) - 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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
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.

Cask, The Francis Newton, Sheffield, UK. Wetherspoon Ale Festival. Deep golden colour, sweet apple aroma. Smooth, zero alcohol on the flavour, dangerous for a +7% cider. Finish is medium sweet, then a general cooked apple ending.

ekstedt (5201) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Golden. Fresh ripe yellow apple aroma. Too sweet with low acidity. Would clearly have gained from more carbonation and cooler serving temperature.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
@ Royal Oak, Twerton. Deep gold. Earthy, skin-forward aroma. Crisp and juicy with lots of acidity and almost toastiness. Great complexity and balance, a gorgeous cider.
