Previously known as Aspall Dry Premier Cru Suffolk Cyder
Has been packaged as Aspall Dry Suffolk Cider and as Dry English Draft Cider for export.

The first cyder produced by Barry and Henry Chevallier Guild when they joined the business - seven years in creation - and still their favourite drink.

Full dry with a sophisticated and elegant floral aroma that captures the essence of an orchard.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Straw colour. Fizzy mouthfeel. Soft apple aroma with a spicy, almost musky, edge. On the palate its dry crisp and fruity, although lacks a bit of depth. A touch clean and lacking in traditional character but undeniably refreshing. Quite acidic finish and aftertaste.

Bottle. Sparkling pale cider with a spritzy, sparkly and sweet apple aroma. The flavour is refreshingly sweet. Overall a very nice cider.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Sort of a pale greenish with a touch of white foam. Looks like wine. Pleasant musky aroma. Nice medicinal tartness. Quite a bit of residual sweetness to be a dry cider, but still pleasant overall.

skoisirius (1818) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle into a Flute glass. Pours a very see-through pale yellow color with a bit of a foamy head to start with that trails off quickly. Very light aroma of dried apples with a bit of a sour note and spice. The flavor is somewhat bland with much of what you smell on the nose, dried apples, water, and a tiny bit of spice. Finishes as the bottle says: very dry!! Not too impressed with this one.

ALLOVATE (2537) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2006
A tasty and well made bottled cider this turned out to be. Looked like French champagne in the glass. Sparkling, lemon yellow body with high effervescence that created an orchestra of noise from the glass. Woody, soft and rounded, fresh crushed apple and pear aroma that showed a pleasant fruit sweetness and a hint of spice. Quite vinous and drawing in the mouth. Lightly sweet and juicy, fresh apple flavours upfront moving into apple-wine flavours on the mid-palate and beyond where it showed some of the alcohol before drying out in the smooth swallow. Becomes tangy as it warms and the fruits just capture the taste-buds and get the saliva glands working overtime. Very clean and simple, but damned tasty and refreshing, I ended up buying a few more bottles to see me through the night. Nice!!! (50cL, BBE 05/08, Tesco, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk)

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2006 One of the best ciders I’ve ever had. I think some of the other reviewers might have had bad bottles, because this is just terrific, just clean apple with a hint of spice. Not totally bone dry, just a tiny hint of residual sugar. Great acidity. Perfect with a pork roast.

harrisoni (14586) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2006
500ml bottle from Tesco. Pleasant apple and oak aroma. Good in mouth and the flavours are good, red apples and then some subtle wood before tangy juicy dry finish. A bracing cider which I like. Attactive bottle too. The aroma really is like putting your nose into a box of apples. Very clean and crisp, but with a lasting juciy finish.
