A medium-dry still cider, available in 750ml bottles.
An off dry style, the richness of the Dabinett, Ellis Bitter and Browns Apple are enhanced by the soft sweetness retained in the cider, with a refreshing balance and length to the finish.

Bottled. Still pale golden. Mouldy, woody apple aroma. Very dry with notes of blue cheese and salted leather. Even drier finish with notes of wood and dust. Intense and interesting.

minutemat (4312) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
75cl bottle from Battlefield farm shop, Shrewsbury. Aroma is a cross between a very sweet (American) apple pie and an ancient forest. Golden brown colour, immediately very dry with a slick texture. The Browns and Mitchelin apples add a sweet balance to the Dabinett. A great cider, even if it did send me straight to sleep after one glass!

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle picked up from the Cheeseworks, Cheltenham, Glos’ 05-09-09 Pours gold some light carbonation. Aroma is definately appley but there is also a cheesiness which is a little strange bearing in mind where I purchased it. Sniffed again and yep’ there is a slight cheese aroma too this. Taste is softened apples and a touch on the sweeter side of medium dry, nicely tangy, some soft woodiness in the mouth, decent stuff. A6 A4 F6 P4 Ov12 3.2
