The_Osprey (6351) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Cask at JDW. Hazy orange, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is apple cider vinegar, apple juice, potato peel, sour fermenting apples. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apple juice, touch of spice, soft booze, watery, a little sour. Meh. This has an unpleasant sourness, but forgivable overall. The least offensive of the three I tried here.

Martin243 (1019) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Pint at the Schooner Gateshead. A big brown glass of drink. Pleasant apple and farmyard aroma. Alas, (and it’s a personal thing), far too sweet for my taste. Too sweet and sticky to be refreshing, which is what I was looking for. Could be a good winter drink with roast pork.

jookos (5507) - FINLAND - JUN 3, 2013
Cask. Clear copper. Fresh picked reddish apples on nose, really nice. A bit of zest/seeds there also. Body is medium full, some oiliness, dry, with mouth drying tannins. But lovely. Red lush apples, sweet, but with the right acidity to balance it out. Dry, with a mouth drying finish.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2013
Draught (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Lovely full aroma, sweet and appley, but some slightly picked or marinated onions too. Nice bold orange, still. What a kick in the mouth - shivers down the spine! Nice phenolic aspects too, a sweet smokey sausage at times. So full, and also so refreshing. No sign of 6.5%. Great cider, one of GyD’s best clear ones.

Plastic barrel at 1st K&ES Railway BF 2009. hazy orange gold, good dryness, fleshy apple fruit, good tannins. Bit of cheese on aroma, but this is really fleshy and rather lovely. Good cider, good dryness and decent tannins. Drunk watching a band play Ramble On by Led Zep.
