2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bag in box @ JDW Shrewsbury Hotel Cider Fest July 14. Pours hazy yellow. Quite a harsh taste, its fruitiness seems masked by an acidic, sour almost chemical taste. Bizarre. Nowhere near as soft, fruity & drinkable as previous Hecks ciders I’ve had. Disappointing.
