500ml bottle drunk with a cider crepe. Textbook dry cider, full of sharpened taste and bursting with juicy apple flavour. Without a doubt one of my favourite cider producers.

Pale gold pour. Very fizzy to start, but it calms quite rapidly. Light apple nose. Dry, tart taste with some alcohol notes. A strange marshmallow aftertaste especially as it warms ... but all-in-all a really drinkable cider.

My first rate of a dry cider, full on apple aroma, dry, fruity taste, went down quite well

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Golden with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is of apple, butter, bandaid. Taste is the same.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsburys Clapham. Clear amber, no head, medium to light carbonation. Nose is light apple juice, apple vinegar, and a very dry pungent apple mustiness. So dry it really catches the throat. Taste is a very dry fairly monotone apple cider. Nice balance, and not too sweet. Just very dry and straightforward simple cider.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
As pictured, from Tesco. Lager gold with a short-lived fizz of head. Promising aroma with yeasty, mouldering fruit and calamine suggestions. Bit of a watery feel beyond; obvious alcohol; rubber and white wine hints; sourness more than dryness in a limp and fleeting finish. Will tip some- more out of boredom than revulsion.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Apple juice colour. Slightly sour apple nose. Sweet background, slightly sour and a little woody in the mouth. Quite an interesting cider, better than much of the mass produced sweet stuff, although not sure it was quite my thing.

An enjoyable change up from Magner’s. A bit more acidic to me, but perfectly drinkable. Still, far from the best cider I have had.

Could have sworn this was oaked but checked their website and they do not mature in oak. Rivals Aspall Dry but does not surpass. Strong taste of real apples and not artificial slush like most so called ciders. No added sugar after fermentation according to them and no reason to doubt that. This is very fine cider indeed.
