Spanish Cider. This refreshing medium-dry cider displays the characteristic flavour of freshly-pressed Spanish cider apples, naturally sun-ripened in selected local orchards. Enjoy chilled with a ploughman’s lunch, dessert crepes or eastern dishes - or pour over ice for the extra chill factor!

danlo (1685) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Sparkling clear golden colour, white foam head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of fruity apple & woody oak . Taste is fizzy tangy apple, sweetish, with some acidity, tannin, and vanilla notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, light bodied, highly carbonated, dry tannic finish. Quite OK.

minutemat (2563) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
330ml bottle from an off license in London. Fairly light in appearance with a spritzy body that fizzes on the tongue. Quite a thin taste for Spanish cider, moderately sweet with green apples and a very faint sour tang. Pleasant enough, but lacking character.

Grzesiek79 (3519) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Nic szczegolnego, takie sobie delikatny cydr. Jasniutenki, pewnie z jakis delikatnych odmian jablek produkowany, Piana jak w szampanie, mnostwo babelkow. Ale nie pozostawial zadnego posmaku po przelknieciu. Nic szczegolnego jak dla mnie

Pours clear pale yellow color with fizzy white head. Musty apple aroma. Sweet apple flavor with some mustiness and tartness. Light body with lively carbonation. Not bad @ $3.25 for 750ml.
