Canned, bottled & draught.
Bright amber colour; aromas of apple and pear; off-dry palate with crisp apple flavours.
Note: This is the export only version, which nowadays is the only one available at 6.0% (possibly lower on draught). Originally it was sold as Dry Blackthorn. Until 2009 it was 6.0% in can/bottle and 5.0% on draught. In the UK was then "reformulated" with a sweeter taste at a reduced abv of 4.7%. At some point prior to this the word "Dry" had been dropped from the name and renamed simply Blackthorn. Following a storm of protest in the area where it is made Dry Blackthorn was reinstated in it’s original form at 5.0% in 2010 but only available in the English West Country.
If you found this in North America it’s more than likely this one (but pay careful attention to the abv). If you found it in the UK it’s one of the others. The version available in other export markets is believed to be based on the 4.7% UK variant. Again, check ABV.

This crap is awful. No decent beer drinker would ever approve of this stuff. and don’t ever mix this with Guinness...it’s an insult to the irish and a waste of a fine beer.

I normally would not rate many ciders, but this is the definitive English cider to me. Not overpowering in its tartness and very subtle apple flavors. It is as the name says also dry.
