COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A still sweet cider available in 750ml bottles and occasionally on draught. NB: Gwatkin sometimes produces draught versions that differ significantly. If you rate a draught version please specify that and include details of the ABV and designated sweetness level (if provided).

The Stoke Red cider apple takes its name from the area in which it was originaly grown, Rodney Stoke in Somerset, but it has become common in most cider apple growing areas of England. This popularity is a result of it being a good apple to sweeten, well bodied and with a good flavour. The cider produced from this apple takes a long time to ferment, which makes the cider late to mature. The trees tend to be of a medium height and bear fruit early December. The apple, as you might guess from it’s name is a strong red colour with a slight tint of yellow.

Bag in a Box @ Euston Cider Tap. Way too sweet, astringent & concentrated to be drinkable for me.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Corked bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy amber color, no head. Mild aroma of vinegar and hazelnuts. Rather oily mouthfeel, without carbonation; semi sweet flavor, that moderates the very strong astringency, and light vinegar; some apple juice flavor too.
Pleasant.
