A still medium cider available in 500ml bottles and 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).

Smooth and rich with a spirit aroma and taste that resonates with the taste buds to surprise and delight. Would be an excellent substitute for a dessert wine. The Yarlington Mill apple is a favourite with traditional cider makers because if its outstanding taste. It originates from deepest Somerset but is found growing throughout the cider makers kingdom. The well sized apples, which are red and yellow in colour, are ready to harvest in late November. The juice is slow to ferment, which produces a rich, red, medium cider.

500 ml clear bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 7%. Clear deep golden to amber colour. No sediment in the bottle. Pours with a slight carbonation and a low and short-lived white head. Lovely aroma of cider apples, hints of sulphites and oak. Only the slightest carbonation in the mouth. Medium sweet flavour, notes of cider apples and sweet eating apples, apparently this is from one single apple variety. Oaky finish with a hint of smoke, a bit too much sulphites.

Bottle @ Angleterre. Pours a slightly reddish, light amber with no head. Aroma is medium apple, not sweet, not dry or sour. Taste begins quite sweet, but not too sugary, strawberry, sweet apple, turns sour apple on the finish. Palate is alright.

Vinegar stong apple smell. Not liking the smell. Dark orange colour opaque. Full oily body. Sour sweet with a light honey finish. Astringent aftertaste. The sour taste is a little offputting.

Bottle at Chris O’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Copper color. Sweet ripe apple aroma. Sweet but also fairly tannic taste with some barnyard, grapefruit and lemon. Nice artisanal cider, reminds some of the great ciders from Dunkerton’s.
