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.

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

Pale straw pour, super fizzy with a lightning fast soda-ish head. Light and refreshing. Light on the palate, but not watery. Crisp green apple taste, with a nice balanced tartness. Slight metallic aftertaste, but quite refreshing.

Bottle. Clear pale golden cider. Aroma of apples and sugar. Taste is crisp apples and sweet sugar. Lots of champagne bubbles. OK cider.

Dobry cydr wytrawny i mocny, troche rozgrzewajacy mimo schlodzonej butelki, ktora jest ladna smukla typu "Long neck". Piana jak na cydr spora. Wyrazny posmak sfermentowanych jablek. Polecam

A really nice 0.5l long neck bottle. It’s really pale this! Almost like really thin squash drink and the small bubbly white head that came in the pour is leaving a thin ring on the sides of the glass. It smells of green small apples, some wood, a little bit of cellar and traces of ginger. Smells quite alright. It’s above average on the carbonation level and it has a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Not directly watery, but still thin. It’s either sweet or dry this. Feels really balanced, almost a but to balanced? Again, small green apples, some mustard seeds and traces of pear. A bit metallic almost on the aftertaste. Not something I will remember for to long to be honest, but it’s a drinkable way to balanced cider without to much character. 19.04.2013

500ml bottle served cold at home in a tulip.Pale piddly yellow, No real aroma, slightly sour green apple flavour. Where is the creamy or oaky palate that I associate with top-notch cider? Disappointing, and spelling it "Cyder" is just pretentious.

Bottle at home, split with the old man, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 03/05/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head, carbonation’o’clock in the glass. Nose is light apples and sugars, a little on the thin side. Taste comprises apples, straw, sugars. Full end of medium in body with moderate carbonation belying the visuals, dry and crisp in the finish with a touch of booze. Ok.

fairly dry apples and apple skin dominate as you’d expect. the tartness is wonderful, and apple character nice though perhaps not the most uniquely characteristic. not bad at all.

Tasted in 2010 (backlog). Clear with a light yellow tint and small white fizz. Aroma is of butter, band-aid and apple. Taste is of butter and apple.
