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.

No bottling information.
Appearance: Crystal clear pale golden body with a quickly dissipating white head that settles into a foamy ring with a little foam island in the middle of the surface.
Aroma: The aroma has a chalky sort of mineral quality with apple skin aromas. Not much aroma of apples.
Taste: The flavor is a bit flat with a mineral quality to it and a mild apple flavor. This reminds me of a mildly sweet Riesling in a way. Not bad, but I like more apple flavor.
Palate: Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
Overall: Not my favorite cider, but I’d drink this again. Not bad, just I like my ciders a bit more bold in flavor. This reminds me more of a wine than a cider.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Appearance: Clear straw/golden/green colour. Aroma: Apple, spicy, wood and note of leaves. Taste: Low/medium sweet and medium tartness. Palate: Thick coarse texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt dry tart apple finish with gentle sweetness. Comments: Tasty but quite subtle flavours.

ClubGonzo (4722) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow crystal clear body with a good deal of bubbles. Nose is mild sawdust, yellow apples and hints of green herbs. Taste is yellow apples, mild citric tones and hints of strawberries in the back. Light body, medium to high carbonation. A very mild, drinkable and inoffensive cider which probably serves well as a crowdpleaser but I find it to be a bit on the boring side. However, the 7 % ABV is amazingly well hidden and this certainly has some merit in my book.

Mjp12 (765) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
A very light tasting, dry cider, with carbonation. It’s great from the freezer in summer, but the 7abv catches you up after a few. Not the most flavoursome cider, but very easy, refreshing drinking.

DocLock (8529) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottles from Capone’s and Whole Foods. Pours clear and effervescent pale gold with minimal head. Nose is apple, earthy, with apple flavor, some tartness, crisp finish, but nothing earth shattering here.

danlo (1631) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear pale yellow colour, thin white foam head and aroma of sourish apple, wood, oak. Fruity apple flavour, with some tartness & sweetness, and oaky notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, well carbonated, dry clean finish. Quite OK.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Purchased at Kingstown Liquors - Kingstown, RI. Lightly sulfured and cooked caramel aroma, fruity and light. Flavor is good. Extra clean, but with a tart closure and some aged gouda, which is a good thing. Bubbly, refreshing, but full bodied and rich. Enjoyable and solid, if not overly complex.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2013
High gravity cider amd finishes with much less sweetness tham would be typical. Otjer than that not really worth mentioning. Very mild and forgettable.

Nice cider. Nice apple aroma with some oak. Some caramel taste. Slightly sweet on the finish. Nice cider.

Had a couple of times before. Very pale yellow. Semi dry, semi sweet, semi carb, semi acidic…..pretty ’semi’ all round really. Drinkable enough.
