500ml bottle Premier Cru, Dry 7% . Pours a beautiful pale yellow with little carbonation. There is little aroma, a hint of sour apples not sweet. The taste is very good with a hint of sweetness and a lingering dryness but neither overpowering. There is an underlying apple but almost pear taste. There is an explosion of bubbles in the mouth which is posdibly too much for food or on its own. It has good body which gives it more substance. Overall a damn good cider. It says 1728 on the bottle and the last 286 years did not go astray! This is a perfectly balanced cider that gas taken years to perfect. I think it is a special occassion cider and not for everyday or pub drinking. The high carbonation may indicate a food beverage.

Bottle, maybe 1.5-2 years old. It seems low on carbonation when pouring but it has a nice palate with bubbles. Appropriate sweetness for demi sec. Flavor and aroma of apples, some sweetness, and a little yeast. Good.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Classy half liter bottle and I got this at Gorillos for only $1.50! Not sure where this goes but my bottle says Aspall English dry draft cider. It has the correct 6.8% tho. Very pleasant aroma. Clear very pale yellow. No bubbles. Taste is yummy sweet volatile treat. Hides alky too well. Decent co2 on the tongue. Very refined compared to my homemade stuff. Well done! Very enjoyable fer sure.

Aroma is apples, a small hint of sweetness and a definite hint of dryness. The flavor is apples, slight mead overtones, fruit and a very dry finish.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is tart, sweet, apples, and mash. The taste is the same. The look is clear, no color, no head.

Tiny bit sweet at first with mellow wine-like body (slightly boozy), oak finish. Some hints of port. Good as an aperitif. I would prefer the dry to accompany food.
