Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
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.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear, bright yellow with a few bubbles on the surface. Hugely sugary, dank apples in the nose. Big sweet flavor (there was no false advertising from the aroma) with ripe apples, faint funk, light spice, lots of sugar. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Sticky sweet finish, faintly warming with more ripe, lightly dank apples. Very mild dryness and must. Pretty OK stuff. The modest funkiness really helps eat into the sugar content of this cider.

imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
On draught at a Wetherspoons. Straw with no head. Sweet cider with a sharp, skinny edge, a little tongue stripping but reasonable.
