Handpull at the Haymakers, Cambridge. Golden, clear and flat. Dry woody smell, with some turpentine, accompanies the apple scent. Sweetervthan I expected, but with dry woody edges and a papery dry finish. Fairly run of the mill but still tasty.

The_Osprey (5323) - 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.
