minutemat (2563) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Draught @ Cottage Loaf, Llandudno. Pours hazy amber with a fresh floral aroma. Complex juicy, fruity taste with an interesting sweet character and some rogue wood varnish notes. A little sharp at times, and drier than expected but still pretty nice.

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Cask at JDW. Cloudy yellow, still, small white head. Aroma is flowery, a little sour, apple, pungent esters. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is astringent apple, banana skin, soft alcohol, some rubber, sweet and sickly, light acidity. Not hitting the right notes for me. Overly astringent peel and ester.

Cask @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Pale golden-amber with a very small bubbly head. Has a light nose and a fairly watery texture, but is full of sweet flavour.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Draught in the Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Lightly hazy yellow gold with pretty much no head. Aroma of sherry, apples sauce, some wood. Flavour is thick syrupy apples. I always know I’m in a mess if I’ve turned to cider. Quite enjoyed this.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 04/05/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin white head that retains well. Nose is apples, sugars, good depth of fruit. Taste comprises sharp apple notes, sugars, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry in the finish with a little apple tang. Decent stuff, one of the best ciders I’ve come across.
