Tap at Krakatoa. It pours hazy bright orange with a small white head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, apple skin, sweet pear, vanilla, tart tatin and a touch of plastic. The taste is sweet, dry apple skin, apple pie, pear, tangy, wood, straw, warming alcohol and some citrus peel with a dry finish. Medium body and limited carbonation. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 This is my first pyder sampled at Beamish Hall Beer Festival. Golden in colour with a few bubbles on the head. Quite sweet on the nose. Fairly dry sand starts of very cider like but aftertaste is definitely perry. Sampled again at Box at Stowmarket Beer Festival quite fruity in a boiled sweet kind of taste, nice though!

On cask at the Standing Order. Appearance - golden with a little bit of froth on the top. Nose - odd struck match note then apples to follow. Taste - sweet apple sauce. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - very average.

Half pint @ the Salopian Summer Cider Festival 2014. Pours clear gold, sweet, drinkable apple-juice character, minimal alcohol, not much pear coming through. Alright, but just a bit weak tasting.

Cask @ O’Hara’s Freehouse
Aroma is quite leathery with some earthy notes - but no pear here. Flavour is slightly sweet and rather leathery with some pear and something metallic and fruity I find hard to describe. Becomes rather dry and leathery towards the end of the glass. My first real perry - interesting.

On draught at Cloisters. Pours a dark golden colour with an aroma of apples, pears and alcohol. Similar flavours with a lovely dry finish and an oily mouth-feel.
