Cask Conditioned at The Pembury Tavern, London
Hazy light blond color; thin creamy head, persistent. Strong aroma of fresh apples, yellow and green, light marmalade too. Smooth mouthfeel, with good apple juice flavor, light acidity, some residual sweetness, and a light astringency to make it more complex. Excellent.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2010
Bag in a box at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Really surprised at the decent ratings this cider has got. Gold, clear. Few bubbles on top. Some decent scrumpy apple aroma. Touch too sweet on aroma. Bruised apple flesh flavour, touch of apple pie, touch of rubber too. It’s not great to be honest. I don’t like the rubber.

Oakes (12234) - 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.

bhensonb (10812) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 2013
Cask at The Punch Bowl in York. Pours burnished copper with a white smear. Aroma of old appleskin. Near med body. Flavor is almost oaky appleskin. It’s astringent, but not really dry. Almost or mayhap even actually bitter. Very tasty. Too drinkable.
