3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned handpump Evening Star Brighton 24/05/12. A hazy green almost clear coloured perry which poured with no head. This seems fairly sweet to me with a lot of pear fruit but also a little of pithy funkiness. Very tasty and drank on a very hot day and not cold enough. Nice.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Plastic barrel at Woolpack Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Clouded pale yellow, no head. This was slightly wierd, I get the chemical, petrol note mentioned below. Generally I enjoy a Perry, but not really this one, very intense and bitter. Quite poor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled bright from a bag in the box and enjoyed on the train home from Planet Thanet BF 2007. Cloudy green gold colour with no head. A bit of industrial pear juice on aroma. Touch of nail varnish. Touch of cabbage in mouth. Some pear juice. Little bit of sugar sweetness is more evident on the finish. Pleasing perry if a little more sweet than I prefer.

Gravity, out the box, at the Burton summer CAMRA festival 2005. Just wonderful. Soaking pears, dry nose, astringent finish. Would have taken the box home with me if I could.

Barrel, GBBF 2005:
Dry perry aroma. Petrol notes are present. Finish is a bit rodden. This one is a litte too much "alive". Corky notes in it as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 From the barrel at GBBF, August 2005. No indication of the level of sweetness, but I’d put this on the dry side of medium. Quite woody on the nose and on the palate. Some petrol notes in the aroma. Not as fruity, and more tannic, than most perries, which could (or could not) be a problem, depending on your preferences. I liked it. Nothing like the Hecks Somerset Perry which I’ve tried before and I initially thought was the same drink with a slightly different name. This one is defnitely more traditional and challenging.
