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.

mR_fr0g (9515) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Very pale green / yellow/ petroleum coloured pour with a fleeting white effervescent head. Aroma is semi-sharp, some candy, some floral notes and bile. Some sharp lemon citrus in the nose as well. Flavour is sweet sharp fruit, apple, touch of sharpness. Palate is quite fizzy, semi-sweet, semi-crisp finish. Decent cider. Quite clean, maybe a little too clean for me.

allmyvinyl (9546) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours pale yellow, no head. Aromas of... well... cider apples, perhaps get a hint of the champagne they are on about in the blurb, in a light, yeasty way. Taste is dry, tart but not sour. Slightly chewy on the finish.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap as English Dry Draft Cider. Aroma is crisp granny smith apple and light biscuit. Pours clear blonde with good fizzy and no head. Taste is light apple, crisp biscuit, and a light malt finish. Clean and dry mouthfeel. A pleasure.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a slight, white, quick-fading head. Nose has almost no apple to it; there’s rubber, latex, and medicinal notes. Rich and mellow on the tongue, with a small amount of residual sweetness. It has a nice buttery roundness to it that sticks around through the soft finish. Quite good, once one gets past the nose.

Holmen2 (2914) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Champagne and some cellar in aroma. Fine cider taste with some conplexity. Good drinkability.

Shared 0,5 l bottle at Cardinal. Clear golden body with a white rim. Apples and champagne on the nose. Apples, sweet and crispy with a dry tongue in the end. Medium bodied.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pale gold, white head. A bit yeasty and apple juice, hints of tartness and slightly dry. Not bad overall I suppose.

OOKPIKABLE (193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
A tasty cider, as ciders go. Refreshing, if a bit winey. Would drink again.
