COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml bottles.

Sparkling.
Henneys Dry Cider is our best selling cider. Smooth, light and refreshing.
Sweet, appley aroma. Palate has a delicious bittersweet apple character with some spicy bite and a bit of a tannic grip. Very fruity and quite pure, with a nice savoury twist.

CanIHave4Beers (3264) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a clear golden color with a champagne like big rise and fall head. There are lots of tiny bubbles rising in the glass with an occasional big couple of bubbles.

The aroma is certainly "appley" but has quite a bit of wet limestone basement character along with some mineral water.

The flavor is indeed basically dry. It’s got a good big of apple rind and bitter apple flesh. There is maybe just a touch of honey in there. It’s got a light minerallity a characteristic that is far more defined in the aroma than the flavor of this cider.

really enjoyable.

allmyvinyl (3353) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco. Pours clear yellow gold, no head. Aromas are old cider and sweaty socks. Taste is indistinguishable from any other mass market cider. Bit Strongbow-y actually. Kinda dry at the end. Not my thing. Not sure why I bought it really. Oh yeah, the rate. Bit sad that.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with medium body. Aroma of ripe apples and caramel. Taste of ripe apples, caramel, honey, ripe green apples and flowers. Dry finish. Refreshing and easy to drink - not a bad one.

MichaelAwesome (4082) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. it offers a fine nose of apples, vanilla and sweets. Taste contains some flowers, more than ripe apples and some lemons. Sweetish start transforming into a really crispy and dry end. Enjoyed that one a lot due to its eomplexity and hidden sweetness.

FatPhil (9358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Nice pale orange, quite spritzy carbonation. Lovely dry cider aroma, has some hints of juicy fruitiness, but there’s a sharp acidic spike that’s really clear - some almost acetone-like hints, and old wooden school desks. Spritzy in the mouth, a little watery, but refreshing. More dry apple, bitter skins, again back to the school desks. Finish leaves apple skin dryness and bite. Very nice filtered cider, so full of real apple, but dryness very nice too. (I’d say it was heading towards medium dry rather than dry.)
Rerate: Gave it a couple of extra points, really enjoyed it. Perfect balance between sweet, fruity, sharp, and dry. More please!

Marduk (2728) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Tiny to almost no head. Dry, apples, yeasty, faint leather aroma. Dry, watery, ice, apples in taste. Quite unusual palate. In a weird way I like it.
