A lightly sparkling cider of medium sweetness with rich mellow flavours typical of English bittersweet apples. Fermented from freshly pressed juice and allowed to mature over the winter, this is a wonderful example of the art and tradition of English cider making.

Bottle. Pour was medium clear golden with a granny smith aroma. Flavors were medium sweet with more granny smith and a little apple peel tartness in the finish. Decent cider with some slight alcohol in the finish. Still a bit sweet, but ok.

500ml bottle (Koht Shop, Tallinn)
On pouring, it’s a beautifully sweet appley aroma. In the glass it’s got some much drier notes, even a hint of acidity, and once or twice a nice hint of cider yeast. Nice bright orange, pours a bit fizzy. Fairly watery palate, carbonation crisp, but light and easy, no sign of 6% at all, has again a littly hint of cider acidity and yeasty dryness. Taste is pure apples, nicely sharp. Finish a little brief, alas, but it was nice while it lasted. Lovely clear sparkling English cider. Looking forward to trying many more. Goes down so damn easily.

tommann (2967) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours light golden with no head and lively as hell. Aroma is sweet apples, also some funk and tart notes. Taste is sweet apple to start, then some funk and more sweet apple in the aftertaste. Finish is medium dry.

Shakesbeere (216) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Aroma is an amalgam of sweet and sour apples with a hint of tart apple peel. Taste is similar. Dry with a tart finish. It was all right, but I’m only sure of its superiority to Strongbow.
